Even after spending two years organizing an entire exhibition dedicated to Adriana Varejão, ICA assistant curator Anna Stothart still sometimes struggles to find the words to describe the effect rendered on her by the Brazilian artist's work.
Although Varejão is a household name in Brazil, the exhibition on view at the ICA starting Wednesday is the first solo presentation of her work in the U.S.
"The thing that I really love about Adriana's work, and you'll see it in each room, is that she never completes series," Stothart said.

"Adriana is very interested in the history of Brazil, which is where anthropophagy comes from.
Drawing on her fascination with racial identity, Varejão created the Polvo series, the most recent works on view at the ICA exhibition, inspired by a 1976 government census in Brazil that gave people the option to describe their own skin color. As a result, people offered 136 distinct answers: "muddy," "fruity brown," "fox on fire red," "not so white," "brown welcomes black," to name a few.
"Adriana picked 33 of the most interesting [answers]-and I think the most poetic-and she transformed them into actual pigments," Stothart said.

"Adriana Varejão" is on view at the ICA through April 5, 2015.
