Last days | “Do Objeto para o Mundo – Coleção Inhotim”, with Cinthia Marcelle, Daniel Steegmann Mangrané, Marcellvs L. and Marcius Galan

(São Paulo, Brazil)

Itaú Cultural, celebrating the 5 years of partnership with Instituto Inhotim, holds the first itinerant exhibition of Inhotim Collection, with works by artists such as Cinthia Marcelle, Daniel Steegmann Mangrané, Marcellvs L. and Marcius Galan.

“Do Objeto para o Mundo” [“From the Object to the World”] is the first itinerant exhibition of Inhotim Collection and gathers works by 29 artists from different generations and parts of the world. The show occupies Itaú Cultural building in São Paulo after a season at Fundação Clóvis Salgado, in Belo Horizonte.

Works presented in this exhibition propose one of many anthologies possible in this archive. On the 1st floor, the show is divided in four moments of the contemporary art rising: Brazilian neo-concretism, the 1960’s productions, avant garde Japanese group Gutai, and the performance art during the 70’s. The historical works and documents are presented along with recent works, pointing out to its forcefulness in present days and for the idea of the history construction.

On floors -1 and -2, works in a variety of medias by Anri Sala, Daniel Steegmann Mangrané, David Lamelas, Jorge Macchi, Marcius Galan, Marcellvs L., Melanie Smith, Michael Smith and Raquel Garbelotti continue the exhibition, grouped in two parts that examine the relations among sound, image, illusion and perception.

The title refers to the movement of approximation of art works and the daily experience in the viewer’s world. It is also a reference to “Do corpo à terra” [“From the body to the land”], manifest held in Belo Horizonte, in 1970, and to the quote by Hélio Oiticica: “Museu é o mundo” [“The world is the Museum”].
