Art Dubai 2014, with Lourival Cuquinha

(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.

“Sudário” exhibition by Carlos Vergara

(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.

Opening | Contemporary Brazilian and Japanese Art Exhibition

(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.

Installation by Dora Longo Bahia at Galeria Vermelho

(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.
