Lourival Cuquinha – Territórios e capital: extinções
14 June – 17 August | curated by Luiz Camillo Osorio and Marta Mestre

Um dos artistas mais inovadores da cena pernambucana contemporânea. Suas instalações, vídeos e performances articulam a vitalidade da cultura urbana e popular às tensões sociais que permeiam a realidade brasileira e nordestina.
Nos últimos anos tem trabalhado de forma crítica as relações entre arte, mercado e geopolítica, cutucando com irreverência algumas feridas simbólicas do mundo contemporâneo.

Alimentário arte e patrimônio alimentar brasileiro
13 June – 10 August | conceived by Felipe Ribenboim | 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.

Arjan Martins – Américas
3 jul – 24 ago 2014 | curated by Paulo Sergio Duarte | produced by Suzy Muniz Produções

The artist presents paintings that go from portraits of important figures spotted on their day-to-day lives to fragments of images that inhabit the same canvas space, with a straightforward lyricism, often hard or raw, without epic or dramatic narratives, reinventing post-colonial themes, rarely addressed by Brazilian artists.
