MAM-Rio | June programme

(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)


Lourival Cuquinha – “Territórios e capital: extinções”
14th June – 24th August | curated by Luiz Camillo Osorio and Marta Mestre
One of the most innovative artists in the Pernambuco contemporary scene. His installations, videos and performances articulate the vitality in urban and popular cultures to the social tensions that permeate Brazilian and Northeastern Brazil realities. In the last years Cuquinha has worked in a critical way the relationships between art, market and geopolitics, poking irreverently some symbolical contemporary world wounds.

“Alimentário: arte e patrimônio alimentar brasileiro”
13th June – 10th August | curated by Jacopo Crivelli Visconti
Gastronomy holds traditions, stories and values. Through recipes or traditions it is possible to identify cultural, social, environmental, geographical and historical aspects that represent the culture of a certain place or that of a country. The history of food in Brazil is shown in photographs, videos, boards, objects and artworks that tell and illustrate the making of Brazilian cuisine.
