(Pelotas, Brazil) The exhibition is motivated by the exceptional aspect of the new acquisitions, donated by artists and collectors to MAC-RS, and aims to promote the access to the collection, making it closer to the public. That way, the Museum carries on promoting the display of its collection in different institutional spaces and through different curatorial perspectives, increasingly promoting contemporary art.
(Pelotas, Brazil) The curatorial concept behind the “Outro Museu” [“Another Museum”] is that what artists and collectors donate to the Museum are memorable presents for the history of art. The exhibition presents these donations, from artists as well as collectors, that made their passion for art public.
(Pelotas, Brazil) After being displayed in Caxias do Sul, the group exhibition “Outro Museu” [“Another Museum”], curated by André Venzon now goes to Pelotas. Its main focus is to bring the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rio Grande do Sul (MAC-RS) collection closer to the wider public.
(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) “The curatorial strategy was to display a suggestive portrait of how the food and culinary universe contributed to the visual constitution of Brazilian imaginary today. More that presenting documents and artworks that tell the same story, which would be impossible, the aim was to exhibit a portrait of the Brazilian food universe that was accurate in reproducing not external aspects, but plurality, diversity and even its stage of permanent change”, says curator Jacopo Crivelli Visconti.
(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) Divided in three parts, conceived by chef Felipe Ribenboim in partnership with Rodrio Villela, the exhibition is curated by Jacopo Crivelli Visconti. The first part of the exhibition, “prelude” gathers exploring expeditions through the Brazilian territory; the second, “roots”, is focused on native cuisine and the influence of cassava in Brazilian gastronomy; the third, namely “Brazilianity”, approaches diversity, economic cycles and contemporary creation, from artists as well as chefs.
(Caxias do Sul, Brazil) Basically, curator André Venzon feels that what artists and collectors donate to the Museum are memorable presents for the history of art. The exhibition presents these donations, from artists as well as collectors, that made their passion for art public.

(São Paulo, Brazil) In the shock between historical and contemporary products, the exhibition proposes an open reflection, inconclusive, on the social critic of art – in Brazil’s case, before being influenced by repression and censorship, and now marked by an ethical-moral confusion where corruption is dominant and critics made by scattered voices. The group of artworks reflects upon the very complexity and uncertainty of the current moment. In the words of curator Maria Montero, the artwork set can be interpreted as a “reflection of the Brazilian spirit, disgust and hope living together and a sharp sense of humour to dribble the situation”.
(Caxias do Sul, Brazil) “Outro Museu – As Doações Recentes ao Acervo do MACRS” [“Another Museum – The Recent Donations to the Museum Collection”] is a way of bringing the museum collection closer to the public in different institutional spaces and through different curatorial perspectives across the state of Rio Grande do Sul. The idea is that the donations are memorable presents for the history of art.
(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) Amilcar Packer, Caetano Dias, Caio Reisewitz, Erika Verzutti, Hector Zamora, Lenora de Barros, Matheus Rocha Pitta, Paulo Nazareth and Paulo Nimer Pjota are some of the names participating in the group show “Alimentário”. “The curatorial strategy was to display a suggestive portrait of how the food and culinary universe contributed to the visual constitution of Brazilian imaginary today”, says curator Jacopo Crivelli Visconti
