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.”

“Temporama”, solo exhibition by Dominique Gonzales-Foerster

(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) “Temporama” is a chronotropic portrait of the artist as a young woman and brings back to life works done by Dominique Gonzalez-Foersterbetween 1985 and 1991, during and soon after her art school years; many of these works are being recreated for the very first time for this exhibition. The early works are full of incipient intuitions and immature desires, exploring ideas and materials that would with time become essential to the artist’s practice: the experience of time and space, the presence of horizontality and color, and the use of carpets, books, and domestic objects as constitutive and recurring elements within the work.






Opening | “O Fim da Matéria – Damián Ortega”, at MAM-Rio

(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) Damián Ortega transits among different supports, discussing the limits of artistic creation when subverting meanings and functions of daily life objects, as bricks, chairs, clocks or cars. The artist change, decompose and transform objects, revealing its implicit and symbolic components and creating hybrid shapes. The exhibition will be a brand new large scale installation in the salon. A polystyrene cube with 6 meters will be transformed during the exhibition period by a group of anonymous Brazilian sculpturs who originally work for Carnival.
