“Time with André Ricardo” is a short documentary by Nicole Pallecchi featuring the Brazilian born and current RU artist André Ricardo. In October 2022, the Swiss-Italian filmmaker Nicole Pallecchi and her crew observed André Ricardo at work in his studio in DUMBO. The film sensitively highlights the artist’s highly focused process in the preparation of his canvases. The viewer will learn about his artistic roots and choice of a pre-industrial process of paint making.
The film will be followed by a discussion moderated by the independent curator and RU Guest Curator Lu Solano.

His works are in public collections such as Instituto Inhotim (Brumadinho, Minas Gerais), Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo, Museu de Arte Contemporânea da Universidade de São Paulo, Museu de Arte de Ribeirão Preto among others.
