Vivian Caccuri presents brand new works in “Condomínio”

(São Paulo, Brazil) In “Condominium,” Caccuri shows four different series of new works, making use of technology to reflect on the permeability – often curtailed – between public space and private space. The materials, shapes, places, and dynamics of “Condominium” are part of the research for “Silent Walk.” While Caccuri researches the locations for the wandering in silence, she encounters people, objects, and situations that cumulatively become elements for projects such as those in the exhibition.

Finissage | “Akakor”, with Felipe Cohen and Marcius Galan

(São Paulo, Brazil) Felipe Cohen and Marcius Galan take part in the group show “Akakor”, on its last days. The title of the exhibition refers to an underground city sited somewhere in the Amazonian region where, according to the legend, an ancient civilisation lived and prospered thousands of years ago. What is curious is that all we know about this particular city was told by a single man called Tatunca Nara: a German-born self proclaimed prince from city whose story is involved in mysteries, murders and myths. The show looks at acts of charlatanism within the artistic realm. The curators are investigating methods employed by artists to deceive, delude, cheat and con their viewers, making use of such strategies both formally and conceptually in their work.

Felipe Cohen and Marcius Galan take part in group show “Akakor”

(São Paulo, Brazil) The exhibition Akakor looks at acts of charlatanism within the artistic realm. The curators are investigating methods employed by artists to deceive, delude, cheat and con their viewers, making use of such strategies both formally and conceptually in their work. By choosing the charlatan (namely ‘a person who pretends or claims to have more knowledge or skills than he or she possesses; quack’) as the hero of the show, the curators aim to incite reflection on a subject that is not only pertinent to art, but urgent to society. Charlatans, we know, are everywhere.

On view | “Eu quero ver”, solo show by Ivan Grilo

In addition, the continuity of his investigation on Lina Bo Bardi’s work, with a prime focus on the period the architect lived in the Northeast of Brazil.

Opening | “Vai que Vai”, solo show by Ana Paula Oliveira

(São Paulo, Brazil) Ana Paula Oliveira’s installation was thought exclusively to the square room at Paço das Artes. The work gathers approximately 40 glass plates, that create an amount of glass on the corner of the exhibition space. Lead and rubber fishes are glued and fulfill a double function: the rubber ones accommodate and soften the contact between the plates and the lead ones weights and stabilize the set. The fishes seem to be swimming against a steady flow.
