Established in the 2000s, the collective ArtConceito has reached its ten-year mark. To celebrate its 524 moons and open doors for new stories, the collective members are integrating the exhibition “ArtConceito – 524 luas”, taking place at Casa Xis and curated by Caetano Dias and Claudia Pôssa.
Between the 8th May and 5th June, Casa Xis welcomes visitors to the Artconceito exhibition (comprised of André Lima, Eliezer Bezerra, Fernando Pigeard and Marco Antônio Ramos), curated by Caetano Dias and Claudia Pôssa. Over this period the public is invited to participate in talks about the artists careers, as well as performances, music, dance and poetry.
To conclude the exhibition, on the 5th June, an ArtConceito almanac will be launched, as a register of the collective history so far, a proposition to think of memory, the group formation process and the exhibition, which relates to the chosen venue and the Bahia Museum of Modern Art workshops – where the artists met and formed the collective. In a way of estimulating creation and conservating artistic groups in the Bahia state, the almanac will be distributing to the visitors at no cost.
