(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)
Luiza Baldan and Caio Reisewitz are two of the 30 artists who participate in “Videoarte agora Videoarte” [Video art now Video art], which opens this Saturday, March 31st, at A Gentil Carioca. Selected by Anna Bella Geiger and Fernando Cocchiarale (the latter, member of the PIPA Prize Nominating Committee in 2011 and 2013), the works on view investigate the creative process.
The exhibition, whose participants were either students or cited artists in a workshop on video art taught in the Visual Arts School of Parque Lage in 2016, is divided into nine major themes: Identity-portraits/autoportraits, About bodies, Testimonials, Dialogues with Art History, Spectacular, Famiglia, Transits, Habitat, and About games and their own rules.
On the same day of the opening of the show, A Gentil Carioca will launch their 77th Education T-Shirt. Designed by Cabelo, currently on view at Espaço BNDES with the solo show “Luz com Trevas” [Light and Darkness], the piece asks for a reaction concerning the state of chaos in which the city of Rio de Janeiro is delved in today:
– We live in a scenery of war – he states. – ”Rambo vs. Rimbaud” represents the power of resistance of art against brute forces.
