  • Watch the video “Home is where the Art is: Stories about Artistic Residencies”

Artists tell how their experiences with residency programmes influenced their thinking and working processes. Catalina Lozano – Gasworks coordinator in 2010 – gives a perspective from the other side of the story, of what she believes a residency should be for an artist.

  • Solo show by Ernesto Neto in Spain

    (Bilbao, Spain) The exhibition “The Body that Carries Me” is curated by Petra Joos and gathers works by Ernesto Neto, who was member of the Nomination Committee of PIPA in 2010. “The exhibition has been developed in close collaboration with the artist, conceived as a high-density trip in which living is the essence of his work—an experience of smells, colors, emotions, and language, of sensory events.”.

  • Last days | Vancouver Biennale

    (Vancouver, Canada) Final week to see Marcelo Moscheta’s work, exhibited through the Vancouver Biennale under the theme Open Borders / Crossroads, as well talks and workshops.

  • Opening | “A Invenção da Praia” featuring Caio Reisewitz, Lucia Koch, Maria Laet and Waléria Américo

    (São Paulo, Brazil) Inspired by the literary work “The Invention of Morel”, by Adolfo Bioy Casares, and by the essay “The Barefoot Life”, by Alan Pauls, “A Invenção da Praia” investigates what happens when the artist transports the extent of the open air landscape to the internal gallery space, and what mechanisms he creates for promoting this great leap. This exhibition opens tonight, at 7pm.

  • Last days | “Cantantes Condutores” by Malu Saddi

    (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) These are the last days to visit Malu Saddi’s first solo exhibition in Rio. The São Paulo-based artist involves the visitors in a fantastic universe, balanced by thin lines. “Balance is something that interests me and is a constant pursuit in my work. I stop many times to look at the drawing, because there is not a previous project, it self-projects, self-balances like a process of acknowledging the needs of the very drawing in the making. How is a huge sphere balanced by a line? There are possible fit relationships, unlikely encounters and a silent sonority that suggests this chain reaction”, says Malu on the drawing series, part of the show.

  • Last days | “Exército Monarca” by Fábio Carvalho at the Artur Fidalgo Gallery

    (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) Fábio Carvalho approximates the strength in the symbolic figure of a soldier to the delicacy of monarch butterfly wings and also develops Portuguese faience painting, 19th century technique, long forgotten by industries. He created variations of this drawing, producing a total of eight pieces. The plates had the edges painted with traditional Portuguese faience patterns. The chosen patterns, although always a floral representation, also suggest barbed wire and other elements used in the trenches.

  • Galleries Leme and Vermelho participate in Perú Arte Contemporáneo 2014

    (Lima, Peru) The galleries Leme and Vermelho feature in Perú Arte Contemporáneo art fair, which opens today. Among the artists exhibited in Galeria Leme’s stand are Alexandre Brandão (whose artworks have geometry, charcoal, light and graphite as main elements) and Marcelo Moscheta, that travels to the places he wishes to address in his artworks, like Uruguay, the North Pole or the Atacama Desert. Galeria Vermelho invited the duo Angela Detanico and Rafael Lain.
