(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) It took 12 days by car to get to the Parnaíba Delta all the way from the interior of the state of Piauí. The result of the journey, undertook by artists Alexandre Canonico, Bruno Dunley, Isabel Diegues, Luis Barbieri, Marina Rheingantz—PIPA Prize 2015 finalist—, Mauro Restiffe and Paloma Bosquê, can be seen in the opening of “Projeto Piauí”. Happening this Saturday, November 26th, at the Jacaranda art space in Villa Aymoré, the show features photographs, sculptures, drawings, paintings and sound installations that, born on the road, constitute an ode to “de-mechanizing the gaze”.
(Miami, USA) “Toda percepción es una interpretación: YOU ARE PART OF IT”, CIFO Art Space’s newest exhibition, invites visitors to participate actively in the show—not only with their bodies, but also with their minds. Curated by Eugenio Valdés Figueroa and Katrin Steffen, the show exhibits “exceptional toys, actions, game inventors and players” by over forty artists from 19 different countries. Among them, icons such as Lygia Pape, Helio Oiticica and Marcel Duchamp are put together with up and coming artists, such as PIPA Prize 2012 winner Marcius Galan.
