Opening | Solo show by Iole de Freitas presents seven new artworks

(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) The artist, who always connects space and architecture, this time opens a new moment in her oeuvre. Instead of using polycarbonate structures, she now deals with steel plates, a much more resistant, colourless material, offering a new challenge to thinking about the work. Matters like reflection and opacity gain new meanings in the steel pieces.

Opening | “O peso de cada um”, by Iole de Freitas, at MAM-Rio

(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) The exhibition “O peso de cada um” [“The Weight of Each One”] presents a shift from the work that Iole de Freitas had been developing up to early 2014. The polycarbonate sheets that the artist used previously have been substituted by sheets of stainless steel, which are stronger but much more difficult to bend, requiring more intense twisting and precise engineering calculations, due to the material’s weight and stiffness.

MAM-Rio holds Claudia Melli’s first major solo exhibition

(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) Curator Luiz Camillo Osorio says of “Lugares onde nunca estive” [“Places I have never been”], “The absence of people does not imply in the absence of humans. They appear as ghosts, as an immaterial residue that creates a movement crossing many images. It is as if people have just left the scenery, transforming us into spectators of a world tired of human presence. Facing these images we end up sort of lifted up between the awareness of places we have never been and the non-places we are constantly in.”
