Regina Vater is a Brazilian-born American visual artist best known for her installation artwork inspired by Brazilian and African-Brazilian mythologies. In the 1960s, she designed the first album cover for the Tropicália movement, a Brazilian art movement associated with the Brazilian musicians Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil. In 1970, she had her first installation, “Magi(o)cean”. She has conducted numerous interviews with John Cage, including a video interview that eventually became a part of her film Controverse. She moved to New York in the 1970s, and in 1979 she curated “the first and most comprehensive Brazilian avant-garde exhibit in the city at that time.” In 1980, she was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship. She lived in Austin, Texas with her husband, video installation artist and professor Bill Lundberg, until 2011, when they both moved to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Vater’s work is known for its feminist themes and questions regarding culture and identity.
