New interview with Ana Dantas

On this video, Ana Dantas answers the question made by the art critic and curator Jesús Maria Carrillo: “In a world of specialized knowledge, what kind of knowledge about the world do you have as an artist?”
She also talks about the psychological, philosophical and spiritual nature of her research, and tells how she investigates the human condition in general and her own subjective position in the world.

What’s going on this weekend at MAM-Rio

The two permanent exhibitions plus four other shows can be visited this weekend at the museum. Elizabeth Jobim shows an installation on her solo “Blocos”; Maria Nepomuceno presents tactile and highly seductive works that deliver waves of visual and conceptual pleasure on her solo show “Tempo para Respirar”; the individual by Lena Bergstein, in which the color blue is the keynote of the exhibition, has been extended until September 8th; and the group show “South America, Pop Art of contradictions” curated by Paulo Herkenhoff and Rodrigo Alonso. Also check out the schedule of the Cinematheque of the Museum, with the exhibition of films about the Spanish Civil War.

In London | “Geometric Progression”, by Marcius Galan

With a recognisably minimal aesthetic, Galan employs abstract geometry to delineate the political and social implications of his chosen environments, deconstructing the codes of objects established through everyday use. This exhibition includes a selection of works installed across three distinct spaces at White Cube Bermondsey, including the North Galleries and 9x9x9.
