Group show “Encruzilhada” brings together 115 works by 74 artists

(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

School of Visual Arts of Parque Lage holds from next Tuesday, April 28th, until June the group show “Encruzilhada” [“Crossroad”], as part of the program Visitor Curator, which began this year. The firs invited curator is Bernardo Mosqueira.

Five curators living in Rio de Janeiro were invited to organize, each one, an exhibition for the year of 2015. These exhibitions contemplate artists inserted in the institutional circuit, such as a selection of students from the School of Visual Arts of Parque Lage, from relevant themes in the trajectory of each curator.

The inaugural exhibition of the program in “Encruzilhada” [“Crossroads”], curated by Bernardo Mosqueira, assisted by Ulisses Carrilho, which brings together 115 works by 74 artists, disposed in the exhibition spaces of the Palace, Pool and Rooftop, the Stables and the Chapel, the Hut, besides the Tower and the Cave in the gardens, and also areas such as the trails and the forest.

The works are organised in six clusters that talk about the physical space of the crossroad – where politic protests, Carnival, flirt, traffic movement and macumba happen, and also situations in which decisions have to be made. During the exhibition period, a weekly schedule of live performances, meetings and talks will be created, resulting in new experiences for the viewers.
