(Hong Kong, China) For about 30 years, Art Basel was associated with one place and one place only: the city of Basel, in northwestern Switzerland. The scenario first changed in 2002, with the successful launching of Art Basel Miami Beach; almost a decade later, it was time for Hong Kong to host its own version of the fair. Starting next week, Art Basel Hong Kong reaches its fifth edition in the island featuring a total of 242 participating galleries, six of whom are Brazilian.

(Vila Velha, Brazil) Between objects, installations, photographs, paintings and videos, the exhibition questions territories and the emotional, identity and belonging relationships they imply, as well as the “geographic imaginary” that is made legitimate through social compositions and structures and strategies of coexistence. Armando Queiroz, Jonathas de Andrade, Marcone Moreira, Rodrigo Braga, Virginia de Medeiros and Yuri Firmeza are a few of the artists featured.
(Vila Velha, Brazil) “‘Of Journeys, Of Desires, Of Paths’ is strikingly shaped in the questions involving body and territory. With a diversity of languages in the same space, the exhibition provides a plural vision of contemporary art developed in North and Northeastern Brazil”, concludes Ronaldo Barbosa, Museu Vale director. Some of the participating artists include Armando Queiroz, Jonathas de Andrade, Marcone Moreira, Rodrigo Braga, Virginia de Medeiros and Yuri Firmeza.
(São Paulo, Brazil) Aiming to produce an encounter between various time strata, Yuri Firmeza leaves two questions in the air: What are we producing in terms of ruins – in the name of progress and of idyllic, utopian cities – in the time to come? Has the present become disjointed for the sake of a future?
