This month the following shows open: “A Inusitada Coleção de Sylvio Perlstein” a completely new exhibition that gathers 150 pieces of great artists such as Dalí, Duchamp, Miró, Lichtenstein, Man Ray, Kandinsky, Cartier-Bresson, Christo, Basquiat, Keith Haring, Tunga, Vik Muniz, Mapplethorpe, Warhol, among others; and Ron Mueck’s individual show, whose sculptures stand out for their scale change and character realism, with subtle gestures that express situations filled with life and mystery.
(Dubai, UAE) Besides the gallery halls, the fair’s extensive program includes commissioned projects and performances, artists’ and curators’ residencies, educational workshops, the unveiling of works by the winners of the annual Abraaj Group Art Prize and the critically acclaimed Global Art Forum.
(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) The exhibition focus is to question love, pointing out the reprehension of its romantic aspect and the possibilities of seeing it creatively, deeply and healthily. Visitors who attend the exhibition closing, this Saturday, will be able to participate in the guided tour through the gallery and in the talk with the artists and the curator.
(Brasília, Brazil) Through poetic displacement and for over five decades of artistic life, Vergara accumulated experiences and intense research into work materials and techniques. A part of this commitment to experimentation, in which the artist creates appropriations of image transference to the body of work, the public will be able to know in this exhibition.
(Ribeirão Preto, Brazil) The artist couple was invited to display the series “Espera”, an interactive combination of video projections and benches the visitors can sit at and are also part of the exhibition. Impregnated shadows reveal presences that in some point sat at the benches, mixing in real shadows and those of the visitors.
(São Caetano do Sul, Brazil) The exhibition gathers about 30 Brazilian, Japanese-descent Brazilian and Japanese-born artists. “In this show, Japanese artists bring us works that refer to the Eastern tradition in new proposals, materials, ideas and elaboration. Brazilian ones innovate and show they are inserted in this dissolution of boundaries between modernity ad contemporaneity. In the nikkei works there is perhaps the encounter, the assessment and comprehension of two universes they had studied and had contact with.”, says Neusa Schilaro Scaléa. Among the participating Brazilian artists are Ding Musa, Reginaldo Pereira and Sandra Cinto.
(Porto Alegre, Brazil) Using 35mm film and VHS images, Dirnei Prates and Nelton Pellenz, from the Cine Água collective, discuss perceptions about fragile situations and things, in an invitation to pause and contemplation in times of virtual urgencies.
(São Paulo, Brazil) Originally created for the 28th São Paulo Biennial, in 2008, the piece that took up the second floor of the Ciccillo Matarazzo Pavilion on Ibirapuera Park presents red acrylic paint which stands out underneath an islamic motif floor in grayscale, inspiring in the viewer a reflection about violence.
