  • Opening | “Bye Bye Brasil, topologia do afeto”, solo show by Gabriela Noujaim

    (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) Gabriela Noujaim left Rio de Janeiro, city where she lives and works, and travelled to the Brazilian countryside, in a network topology. Her final destiny was the city of Juazeiro do Norte, in Ceará. During her stay in the city, Noujaim registered the scenarios and local happenings in photographs. These registers feature the exhibition along with images from the movie “Bye Bye Brasil”, by Cacá Diegues. In this show, the artworks by Gabriela Noujaim compose a dreamy universe that goes beyond what’s real.

  • On view | Occupation ARTE SONORA, produced by Franz Manata and Saulo Laudares

    (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) ARTE SONORA is an artistic practice by the duo Franz Manata e Saulo Laudares. The project started in 2009 at Escola de Artes Visuais do Parque Lage and assumed numerous formats: workshops, happenings, podcasts, exhibitions, publications, radio shows, web actions and residency programs. Wednesdays and Fridays will be dedicated to The Place, a practice developed by the duo since 1998, which consists in a collective space of sound experiences, where artists, researchers, DJs, musicians and the public share their interests and experiences in sound.

  • On view | “Elements of Beauty”, solo show by Carla Zaccagnini

    (Colchester, UK) Carla Zaccagnini’s project, “Elements of Beauty”, revisits the campaign for women’s suffrage in Britain a century ago. The installation examines a series of actions that took place in British museums between 1913 and 1914, when over 20 artworks at the Manchester Art Gallery and the National Gallery in London ­– most notably, Diego Velázquez’s The Toilet of Venus (or The Rokeby Venus, 1647–51) – were attacked by Suffragettes. Zaccagnini’s artwork draws upon research into this history, quoting statistics, primary evidence and newspaper reports from the time, and information about the artworks at the centre of the iconoclastic acts.

  • This week at MAM-Rio

    Two new shows were opened at the Museum of Modern Art of Rio de Janeiro: “Mutações” ["Mutations"], by the Argentinian Duville, and “Precious few…!” , with an excerpt of the museum’s international collection ( including works by Giacometti and Keith Haring among others). This is the last weekend to check out “Thresholds – The Joaquim Paiva collection at MAM”, currently with nearly two thousand works by Brazilian and foreign photographers. The show was extended until this month. At the Museum’s Cinematheque, a special program with films by French documentarist Nicolas Philibert. See the full Museum programme, the Cinematheque calendar and screening times and the Education and Art activities.

  • Carla Zaccagnini and Runo Lagomarsino in survey exhibition in Scandinavia

    (Malmö, Sweden) The artworks in the exhibition have been categorized into five loose themes: charting and topography, violence and destruction, collapsing distances, traversing languages and regions, dislocation and (de)constructing national identity. The groupings are formally represented by a display structure and graphic system designed by the artist Luca Frei, invited by the artists for his own interest in sculpture as a form of display.
