“PINTAR A CHINA AGORA” | Ondrej Brody and Kristofer Paetau

December 7 – February 16

The exhibition will take place at the Foyer of the Museum as a collection of thirty oil paintings rendered from photographs of religious movement Falun Gong practitioners, depicting instances of violence inflicted by the Chinese government upon their own citizens. Although this is the first time in Brazil, the installation premiered in Belgium in 2007, followed by the Netherlands (2008), Poland (2010), and Germany (2011).

“Painting China Now” tackles an inconvenient but necessary topic: political persecution and torture. The problem is how to turn these images into something other than mere whistleblowing. Not that it means it is unnecessary, but adding critical layers to it provides the artistic strategy with important complexity and intensity, said curator Luiz Camillo Osorio.


December 12 – February 16

The exhibition at Museu de Arte Moderna do Rio de Janeiro gathers new works by one of the most important names of Brazilian contemporary art, Antonio Manuel, with two installations created specially for this space, and also emblematic works, creating a representative set of his poetic trajectory. The opening happens this Thursday, December 12, from 7pm to 10pm. Curated by Luiz Camillo Osorio.
