Performance, body and politics

The project Performance, body and politics, in its fourth edition, has the goal to discuss the integration of artistic language of performance through contemporary art. Technology, video-art, webs and urban space, nets and other politics, power relations, performances and regional experiences are some of the themes being discussed. Amongst the participating artists are Gê Orthof, Luciana Paiva, OPAVIVARÁ! and Shima.

In urban cartography increasingly developed from political and economic interests, the concept of landscape is under contradictions about what it means to live in contemporary society. Lucia Koch creates places of estrangement.

Opening | Felipe Barbosa at EAV

The artist subverts the meanings of existent objects and their uses, always from everyday materials. For this exhibition, he approaches notions of movement and rest to reveal new abstractions.

Opening tomorrow | Debora Santiago

At the exhibition opening, there will also be the catalogue’s launch. The artist presents a series of drawings and watercolors and the videos ‘Baião’ (2008) and ‘Caderno Confete’ (2007-2008).

Closings at Galeria Vermelho

André Komatsu presents a series of works on which he employs a set of regulations taken from rational systems such as Mathematics, Architecture and Geometry with the goal of revealing the ambivalence of these systems and question their efficiency. Jonathas de Andrade reproduces the panel of a tropical modern house in real size, transforming the house’s tiles into fiber glass pieces with the same dimensions as the original
