Exhibition tells the story of Josephine Baker and Le Corbusier in Rio | with Matheus Rocha Pitta and Laercio Redondo

(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) Famous dancer-singer-actress Josephine Baker, who revolutionized dancing standards with wild, anarchic choreographies in the 20th century, met prestigious architect Le Corbusier in Rio 1929, after a long journey on transatlantic ships. At first sight, their encounter may represent two opposed ways of seeing the body in modern times. But are they so distinct from one another? Would not they actually be nurturing each other? This exhibition includes documents and photographs that depict the encounter of these two remarkable 20th century personalities, combined to works of visual arts, dance, performances and cinema.

Jonathas de Andrade participates in group show “The mind was dreaming. The world was its dream”

(Dublin, Ireland) The group exhibition, featuring works by Jonathas de Andrade, Edgardo Aragón, Gavin Murphy and Lisa Tan, brings together artists who revisit history through personal and staged narratives. Blurring the lines between fact and fiction, real and imagined, each artist creates a palimpsest site to negotiate new meaning. Existing in neither the past or present this in-between space uncovers alternate ‘truths’.

Solo exhibition “Metamorfose”, by Toz

(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) With several new works on canvas, photographs, objects and installations the artist proposes an immersion in the universes of his recent characters:Insônia [Insomnia] and Vendedor de Alegria [Joy Salesman]. The first one, represents the lost nights in a dark, sullen coloured palette. The second one has a more vivid palette and refers to daytime, Sundays on the beach, light.

Lauching of children books “A Família Mobília” and “Superzeróis”

(São Paulo, Brazil) “A Família Mobília”, by Tatiana Blass and “Superzeróis”, by Marcelo Cipis are being launched this Saturday, with a children workshop and authors autograph session. Tatiana’s first book is about a family of furniture, where every piece relates to their use: a TV who is an attention seeker, a sofa who spends the day taking a nap… each illustrated with a different pattern. Cipis invented clumsy superheroes that the reader can combine using interactive cards to create different stories.

Carla Zaccagnini in Ireland’s Biennial of Contemporary Art

(Limerick, Ireland) The 36th edition of EVA International, Ireland’s Biennial of Contemporary Art, focuses on the struggle between the tides that pull the present towards romanticisations, utopias, ideologies, and nostalgias; and the tides that attempt to push it beyond those limitations and towards an unknown, a desire for something that remains too complex to determine today – this edition’s theme is Agitationism, curated by Bassam El Baroni.

Opening | “Wave” by Renan Cepeda

(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) The eyes can no longer see this light that Renan Cepeda dogs for over two decades, investigating the limits of the infrared radiation that makes up the spectrum of light. Having his full time now devoted to the fine art photography, Renan Cepeda has been recognized for his artistic research on unusual photographic techniques such as infrared photography and light painting, having been awarded with many prizes in Brazil and abroad. The opening is this week in Rio.
