“An exhibition that has always been and will never end; an exhibition that changes its shape throughout space and time; an exhibition that exists both mentally and physically; an exhibition in search for an author”. That is how artist Raimundas Malašauskas defines “Unanimous Night”, group show curated by Bernardo José de Souza on view at the Contemporary Art Center (CAC) until August 13th.
Featuring works by 25 artists – amongst them, PIPA Prize nominees Cristiano Lenhardt, Marilá Dardot, Ana Mazzei, Matheus Rocha Pitta, Luiz Roque, Michel Zózimo and Daniel Steegman, as well as renowned names such as Yves Klein –, the show expands its ambiguous quality by concealing the artists’ names from the pieces, inviting the viewers to question who or what exactly are the real authors of the show.
Authors which may or may not be visual artists, that is. Irish playwright Samuel Beckett is one of the artists included in the participants’ list, for example. Appropriate decision for an exhibition whose title (and main inspiration) was borrowed from another great writer, Jorge Luis Borges: “Unanimous Night” is apparently a line from “Circular Ruins”, short story first published in 1940.
“Unanimous Night”, group show featuring Pablo Accinelli, Bas Jan Ader, Samuel Beckett, Felipe Braga, Liudvikas Buklys, Oliver Bulas, Anna Costa e Silva, Marilá Dardot, Guerreiro do Divino Amor, Anna Fracheschini, Eduardo Haesbaert, Daniel Jacoby, Yves Klein, Cristiano Lenhardt, Tomaso De Luca, Raimundas Malašauskas, Ana Mazzei, Pedro Moraes & Luiza Crosman, Rodolpho Parigi, Pablo Pijnappel, Matheus Rocha Pitta, Luiz Roque, Daniel Steegman, Gustavo Torres and Michel Zózimo
