The Museum of Contemporary Art of Rio Grande do Sul (MACRS) holds the group exhibition “Outro Museu – As Doações Recentes ao Acervo do MACRS” [“Another Museum – The Recent Donations to the Museum Collection”], curated by André Venzon. The exhibition takes place frm 4th to 31st July, at Galeria Municipal de Arte Gerd Bornheim and includes pieces by Luiz Roque e Rommulo Conceição, among several others.
Basically, the curatorship 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.
The exhibition is motivated by the exceptional aspect in the new acquisitions and aims to promote the access to the collection, bringing it closer to the public. That way, the Museum carries on promoting the display of its collection in different institutional spaces and through different curatorial perspectives, increasingly disclosing contemporary art.
