Caneta, Lente & Pincel
6 Dec – 01 Feb 2015 | curated by Vivian Faingold and Renato Amado
Conceived by writer Renato Amado and photographer Guilherme Quaresma, the project seeks to merge in different artistic languages. An innovative idea, it sprung over five years ago and became a popular blog. “Caneta, Lente & Pincel” [“Pen, Lens & Paintbrush”] is a project that brings together the most varied artistic currents. Its aim is straightforward: from one image – video, photograph, painting, drawing, etc – or music, a text is created. Or vice-versa.

11 Oct – 18 Jan 2015 | curated by MAM-Rio
Although it started as a private collection, Paiva’s initiative is consistently public and puts to the test what used to be a private collection or individual creation. “Thresholds – the Joaquim Paiva Collection at MAM-Rio” talks about the different representations of public and private in the world of art by proposing another way to look at the nature of the spaces represented in the materiality of the image, with special regard to photography.
