(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) In order to celebrate the opening of the group show “Grid”, Jacaranda, located in Villa Aymoré, promotes a get-together between its participating artists and curator (and twice PIPA Prize Nominating Committee member) Felipe Scovino this Saturday. The exhibition displays works by 14 artists – five of them PIPA Prize nominees, Ana Holck, André Komatsu, José Bechara, Lucia Koch and Raul Mourão –, all based in the concept of the grid.
(São Paulo, Brazil) Nominating Committee member in the second edition of PIPA Prize, artist Luiz Zerbini presents his foray into the universe of prints for the first time in “Monotypes”, which opened last Saturday at Galpão by Fortes D’Aloia & Gabriel, in São Paulo. Assisted by printer João Sánchez, Zerbini used rare botanical species as matrices for the pieces he showcases in the solo exhibition. The compositions favor the contours and textures of each species in a reduced palette of browns, greens and blacks.
(London, UK) The work of Luiz Zerbini—an important figure of the so-called Generation 80 in Brazil, which promoted a return to the painting medium in the 1980s—will be exhibited for the first time at the Stephen Friedman Gallery, in London. The show, named simply “Luiz Zerbini”, starts next Wednesday, February 8th, and presents both the large-scale paintings the artist became famous for, as well as some collages.

(Florida, US) “Histórias” will showcase works by Jonathas de Andrade, Sonia Gomes, Virginia de Medeiros, Caio Reisewitz, and Luiz Zerbini, whose approaches address the varied histories of Brazil, some collective, some individual, but all rooted in reflections on the country’s complicated past and present, and vast geographical, racial, and cultural wealth and diversity.
(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) The exhibition highlights the plurality of Brazilian art. As well as betting on the strength of Rio artists, the show brings other cities close together. “Narrative resources such as simile are very important when it comes to Brazilian art. This is an exhibition formed by a crossing between contemporary art and literature, film, theatre and music, among other languages. At no point we are illustrating a book of stories”, says curator Daniela Name.
(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) Diving into the narrative universe of some of the most remarkable contemporary artists in Brazil, “Ficções” has as starting point the book of the same name Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges. Curated by Daniela Name, the exhibition gathers over 40 works, including painting, installation, videos and other medias by 33 Brazilian artists.
