This month, Rio de Janeiro’s Museum of Modern Art presents seven exhibitions, three film screenings at the museum’s cinematheque and several events promoted by the Experimental Nucleus of Education and Art.
Carla Zaccagnini and Cinthia Marcelle are amongst the participants of the video exhibition “Sisyphus: Heroism of the absurd”. Sisyphus’ task, to roll an immense boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down, and to repeat this action forever, is fascinating at the light of contemporary life. In a society where it’s imperative to stand out and to meet goals – many times in alienating societies -, there is art that responds with subversion.
This exhibition will show a selection of his most important pieces from a donation the artist made to the museum in 2006.
Rodrigo Braga, Sandra Cinto and Tony Camargo are amongst the participating artists of the exhibition “Limites do Imaginário” [Limits of the Imaginary]. Tony Camargo is a guest artist and will be presenting his Videomódulos.
The exhibition has 35 works made by the artist during his career of over 30 years. It resumes his trajectory from the 1980s until today.
PIPA 2010 nominee Felipe Barbosa’s solo show in Rio de Janeiro. The exhibition’s title can be translated to “Every displacement is always circular”.
The exhibition has the participation of Bahia’s new art generation and artists of the first moment of conceptual art. Curated by Marcelo Rezende.
Exhibition of paintings and photographs made by 8 Brazilian contemporary artists. Amongst them, PIPA nominees Luiza Baldan, Marina Rheingantz, Rodrigo Andrade and Sofia Borges.
In the show’s opening, OPAVIVARÁ! will parade around the streets of Rio de Janeiro’s Center. They will invite friends and artists to wear the costumes at the opening show. Throughout the exhibition, the outfits are available for the audience’s use.
