Christopher Grimes Gallery | Waltercio Caldas//php the_author(); ?> December 9, 2013
(Santa Monica, USA) Widely considered by critics, curators and writers to be one of the most important artists emerging from Brazil in the years following the Neo-Concrete movement of the early 1960s, Waltercio Caldas, member of PIPA’s Award Jury in 2012, is known for his rigorous formal concerns which arrive from investigations into human perception. For this exhibition, Caldas will present a series of new sculptures that address negative space. Frequently using forms that defy one’s sense of volume and depth perception, viewers are often surprised by his objects which reference architectural and perspectival space that is not wholly present.
“A Sense of Place” | Group show with Lucia Koch//php the_author(); ?> December 8, 2013

Closing | “Turvações Estratigráficas” (Stratigraphic Turbidities)//php the_author(); ?> December 8, 2013
(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) Yuri Firmeza appropriates the archaeological remains found during the renovation of the D. João VI Chateau and of the Mariano Procópio Bus Terminal for the installation of MAR, as well as debris coming from removals made at Morro da Providência, located in the Rio de Janeiro port area. As a result, Yuri becomes a legatee of a dense, unruly matter, whose opacity forces us to ask: what existences, entirely buried there, continue clamoring for a voice and for room in such debris in disarray? What are the forms of life still in revulsion, whose echoes the forcible silencing of urban progress cannot avoid? How do we let live what lies in unrest right under our feet?
Closing | Berna Reale at MAR//php the_author(); ?> December 7, 2013
