(Caxias do Sul, Brazil) Basically, curator André Venzon feels that what artists and collectors donate to the Museum are memorable presents for the history of art. The exhibition presents these donations, from artists as well as collectors, that made their passion for art public.
Marcelo Jácome is asked by critic and curator Renata Azambuja: “Do you work alone or collectively?”
He replies: “When I’m thinking about work, it takes place in a more lonely way, by myself. When my work comes out to the world and it is shown, I think it requires a collective setting perhaps, so it can become effective and be assembled.”
The artist speaks of the material research, papers, collages and colors and resulted in the works he does with kites: “Kites came in more as a plastic solution for what I wished than effectively as a poetic element or whatever” and says that on his everyday life, if he is not at his studio he is out walking.

(Malmö, Sweden) Carla Zaccagnini participates in this exhibition, bringing back to life one of the most radical statements of the legendary voting rights activists: “Justice is an element of beauty as much as colour and outline on canvas”. The artist takes visitors back to art galleries attacked by the suffragettes in London and Manchester in 1913 and 1914.
