(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) A neighborhood often overlooked when it comes to the carioca art scene, Barra da Tijuca becomes the spotlight of this weekend’s cultural calendar. Aside from ArtRio Carioca, a local version of the renowned fair ArtRio on view at VillageMall until Sunday, Cidade das Artes opens this Saturday, December 10th, the exhibition “Cidade Jacaranda Pequenos Formatos: Dimensão e Escala” [“Cidade Jacaranda Small Formats: Dimension and Scale”], showcasing an impressive panorama of the Brazilian visual arts.
(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) In the hopes of expanding the art calendar of the city, the international fair ArtRio presents, this Thursday, December 8th, the first edition of ArtRio Carioca.

Works by Abraham Palatnik, Antonio Manuel, Cao Guimarães, Rivane Neuenschwander, Carlos Bevilacqua, Ernesto Neto, Franklin Cassaro, Hélio Oiticica, Judith Lauand, Lygia Clark, Lygia Pape, Luiz Sacilotto, Waltercio Caldas and Willys de Castro can be seen in the exhibition.

(Quebec, Canada) “What you will see is a constellation of works by young artists, our view on emerging Brazilian contemporary art”, affirm the Curators Gunnar B. Kvaran, Hans-Ulrich Obrist and Thierry Raspail.
(Quebec, Canada) “In a certain way, Brazil is an imaginary country. It is a country of spectacular nature and magic, of ethnic and social diversity. In fact, it is not one country but multiple, variable, rich and overwhelming lands. There is thus no one way to sum up the nation or the country, and the same goes for its art scene”, affirm the curators Gunnar B. Kvaran, Hans-Ulrich Obrist and Thierry Raspail.
(São Paulo, Brazil) The curators sought “art that assumes visibility beyond what is visible, sensibility beyond physical effects, travelling through and in between bodies; situations in which materiality loses contours and becomes fluid”. Ligia Canongia explains the sensory proposal of the exhibition is the provocation of emptiness, of absence, of intervals, of vapour and air existing between all things, and what surrounds us constantly.
(São Paulo, Brazil) The exhibition shows artists who deal with art in two manners of relationships: the issue of “matter” and “non-matter”, where there may be or not a concrete materiality. Adon Peres comments on how visitors will confront these two perceptions: “in the first case, a specific subject-object relationship is formed, although distanced; in the second, specially with installations, the visitor literally dives into the artwork atmosphere.”
(São Paulo, Brazil) Laura Vinci, Marcius Galan and Paulo Vivacqua are among the eight Brazilian artists with works showcased in “Imaterialidade”, which deals with art in two manners of relationships: the issue of “matter” and “non-matter”, where there may be or not a concrete materiality. Adon Peres comments on how visitors will confront these two perceptions: “in the first case, a specific subject-object relationship is formed, although distanced; in the second, specially with installations, the visitor literally dives into the artwork atmosphere.”
