The Mixtures exhibition celebrates the first decade of Galpão Bela Maré, by proposing points of reference and forms of materiality that bring different generations and temporalities together to enter into dialogue with the territory, with the space and its unique features. The curatorship involves 19 artists who have helped to put together the history of artistic production in the Favelas da Maré Complex and the show includes many of the greatest achievements of the Center’s creative and educational work over the past ten years. In the words of Jean Carlos Azuos, this meeting brings together the different kinds of corporeality, poetics and geography upon which the ideas and aims of Galpão Bela Maré are based. This is a show made of symbols that presents an overview of a decade of major achievements and experiences in the field of the visual arts in Brazil and that aims to promote the development of broader horizons in matters related to the area’s survival, expansion and population growth.

Counter-memory aims to establish a dialogue between 38 works belonging to the modernist collection of São Paulo Cultural Center and around 90 contemporary works. The project creates a tension out of the silences and nuances present in the Modern Art Week of 1922 that is now regarded as a seminal event. The aim of the exhibition is to produce a re-reading and critical translation of the 1922 Art Week and its cultural and political context. The friction produced between these two exposes a fresh perspective on the silences and ambiguities of the Art Week, revealing a more diverse range of stories and individuals. Counter-memory also aims to disrupt the standard perception that prevails with regard to this event. Works by black, indigenous, trans, and women artists and artists from different generations are introduced to clash and create friction when compared to sculptures and paintings of European inspiration and refined architecture.

Van Gogh and his Contemporaries: An Immersive Exhibition aims to provide an experience of sensory immersion in the life and work of the Dutch painter, who was one of the greatest artists of the 19th century, guiding visitors through a digital experience involving 360° projections and an original soundtrack. The content of a 60-minute narrative involves the audience in the life and work of the painter, as well as encouraging a viewing of the works of other great names whose works bear some relation to Van Gogh’s, including Cézanne, Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec, Soutine and Modigliani. Visitors are given the opportunity to delve into the history of the artist through explanatory texts and a timeline of the life of Van Gogh. Viewers find themselves immersed in gigantic images, created by multiple projectors through a system that adapts the screens to the exhibition space and provides the sensation of being inside the paintings of one of the world’s most famous and most beloved artists.

Hosted by Paço Imperial, the exhibition “Make yourself at home: radical care and hospitality” gathers together the work of 19 artists, Brazilian and international, all of whom explore the tensions within the guest-host relationship in a context of global displacement. The theme common to all of these artists is that of migration, understood as a form of movement, displacement, flux, occupation or voluntary or forced transfer of people, species and other bodies and animate or inanimate materials, revealing tensions within the concept of hospitality that may be interpreted formally or discursively. The concept of “hostipitality” is used to draw attention to the ambiguous nature of hospitality, which is apparent even from the form of the word. Faced with the foreigner, who is also “a stranger”, this concept contains a contradiction, which may take the form of hostility, or of a compensatory gesture. The exhibition draws attention to the tensions in guest-host relations seen in terms of historical and contemporary forms of migration, which in turn influence more wide-ranging xenophobic practices in relation to any “other”, not just migrants or refugees.

In 1946, the Brazilian psychiatrist Nise da Silveira set up the Occupational Therapy Wing of the National Psychiatric Center, in Rio de Janeiro. At a time when psychiatric treatment methods such as electroconvulsive therapy, lobotomy and insulin coma shock were still commonplace, Da Silveira believed that patient could and should be helped by allowing them to express their pain, rather than being put into a stupor. Creative activities proved to be a powerful means both of calming schizophrenics and of accessing their inner worlds. The circular drawings they produced—some complex, others harmoniously structured—intrigued Da Silveira. She sent some samples to the famous psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung. He saw in these mandala drawings confirmation of this theory of the universal language of symbols. Art critics were also impressed by their quality. Over the years, an unusual collection of around 400,000 artworks built up and this is now officially recognized as artistic heritage in Brazil. The Images from the Unconscious exhibition displays a selection of the works from this extraordinary collection. It presents the work of artists who have been working with Nise da Silveira for almost half a century, including neolithic sculptures, paintings of flowers in transformation, solar paintings made with wax crayons, in addition to the mandala drawings that made such a strong impression on Carl Gustav Jung.

O Busão das Artes é uma exposição itinerante que circula pelas praças do Rio de Janeiro para partilhar, com arte e ciência, a diversidade que há em cada ser-pessoa. Entre os pontos previstos de parada estão a Praça Mauá, o Parque Madureira e a Praça Santos Dumont. A exposição foi pensada com um programa educativo que recebe escolas da rede municipal e particular em dois turnos diários, além de público espontâneo. 

A proposta do Busão Arte & Ciência é abrir possibilidades de compreensão das dimensões infinitesimais do universo das bactérias a partir de experiências criadas pelos artistas visuais Vik Muniz, Jaider Esbell, Suzana Queiroga e Walmor Corrêa. A exposição é uma maneira de apresentar esses múltiplos seres que constituem, conosco, o que cada um de nós é. O conceito central é, então, o reconhecimento de que pertencemos externamente a um ecossistema, e somos internamente um ecossistema. 

A iniciativa apresenta duas vertentes: uma ambiental, que trata das bactérias e de seu papel em nosso ecossistema; e outra científica, que aborda nosso conhecimento sobre o organismo humano. Quem vai ao ‘Busão’ descobre, com uma pitada de humor, que há mais de um quatrilhão de bactérias na Terra, dos quais 100 bilhões habitam o corpo humano, e 99,99% ainda sequer foram descobertas.

The Bodies of Phonosophy project was produced between September and November 2021 by the artist Camila Sposati, in collaboration with a group of 15 residents of the city of Belo Jardim. For this project, musical instruments were imagined and produced by the group in the course of weekly group meetings with Sposati and the ballerina Amália Lima, who prepared the participants physically for the project.

Based on the Legislative Theater of Augusto Boal (1996), Bodies of Phonosophy aims to connect the personal body to the social. The focus is on exploring the relation between the pieces created by way of the subject-bodies that create them. This enables investigation of their potential as mediators between different subjectivities and the world. The works produced as part of this project can be accessed by the general public in the form of a digital exhibition put together in collaboration with the artist Rudá Cabral.

Sposati’s Residency also involves a series of public meetings, broadcast via YouTube, featuring invited guests from a range of fields discussing various aspects of the project. The Public Program is designed for those seeking more in-depth knowledge of some of the main issues arising in the course of this Residency.

The project also includes an Education Program, put together by curators Cristiana Tejo and Kiki Mazzucchelli. This program adopts the format of a minicourse providing an Introduction to Contemporary Art, divided into four modules, and is open to the general public free of charge.

Curated by Fabiana Moraes and Moacir dos Anjos, the Língua Solta [Language Unloosed] exhibition shows us the diverse range of uses to which the Portuguese language is put in art and everyday life. The show accomplishes this by presenting a variety of artifacts whose meaning is firmly grounded in the use of words as objects of popular or contemporary art. The exhibition was originally staged to mark the re-opening of the Museum of the Portuguese Language, which had been closed since 2015, when it was damaged by fire.

In all, 180 works by contemporary artists and so-called “popular artists” are included. The miscellaneous approach adopted by the curators, which sets the tone for the whole exhibition, makes connections between art and politics, life in society, day-to-day behavior patterns, and forms of protest, religion, and survival. The guiding thread which links all of these factors is the Portuguese language.

“The tongue/language is loosened because it disrupts the consensuses that form the basis for the predominant social relations, in both private and public spheres. When incorporated into various different images and objects, this suggests other possible interpretations of the world and thus weaves together a political web all of its own”, as Moacir dos Anjos puts it. The project regards language as a social agent that not only reflects but also reorganizes forms of life. In an intuitive and playful fashion, the show includes some of the creative strategies that, by organizing a highly diverse range of images and objects, both suggest and help unleash the power that language possesses to provide emancipation. “We see language as a site of power struggles that and this reflects various issues we face in Brazil – race, class, gender and geography”, Fabiana Moraes remarks.

The group exhibition Arte, Cidade e Patrimônio: futuro e memória nas poéticas contemporâneas (Art, City and Heritage: Future and Memory in Contemporary Poetics), curated by Adriana Nakamuta, presented the work of 10 artists from six Brazilian states, where memory and the future were discussed through urban poetics. The exhibition occupied the three floors of the Oi Futuro Cultural Center in Rio de Janeiro.

The exhibition MASCULINIDADES in DIÁLOGO (MASCULINITIES in DIALOG) is the product of the work of twelve artists who formed part of the second class of Elã – Escola Livre de Artes (Elã – Free Arts School).

The 2020/2021 edition, with the theme “Building other masculinities”, organized in partnership with the GlobalGRACE Project in Brazil, selected artists between 18 and 35 years old, from favelas and peripheral communities, who work with different languages, media and poetics, to carryout investigations into masculinities based on themes such as gender, race and territorial inequalities. The program adopted a hybrid format with online and face-to-face meetings in the shed’s space. 

Three training cycles were held: preparatory conversations, linked to the theme concepts, which addressed the subject “building other masculinities” (Esquenta ELÃ, accessible to the public on YouTube); research laboratories based around the themes paths, bodies and materialities; and, finally, the agencies theme, oriented by discussions and monitoring of the production of the final works and exhibition. 

The exhibition includes original productions conceived and executed during the training process. A 360o visit has been produced and can be viewed online until September 2021.

Marcos Chaves: the images that speak to us (Curator’s Text)

Curiosity about the things that surround us, from the smallest to the largest; about what we think we know to what we still haven’t been able to figure out. Without filling the world with new things; on the contrary, giving due attention to the things that exist, allowing them to reveal themselves in their uniqueness.

Since the late 1980s, Marcos Chaves has been responsible for an artistic production that allows us to see close up objects and situations that comprise the world we inhabit. Through his images, we can get closer to the city of Rio de Janeiro, to its lush landscapes and hidden corners; but also to imagined or distant places. And through objects from the present and the past, often presented in sometimes unexpected dialogues, we illuminate with stories that ultimately speak about ourselves. 

Marcos Chaves: as imagens que nos contam (Marcos Chaves: the images that speak to us) includes around 70 works by the artist that show the different facets of his practice, from photography and video, to installations and modified objects. It brings together creations from private collections and from the artist’s own collection, together with new and recent works, using an expositive grammar which, like Chaves, connects things to each other, in dialog with the landscape of which they form part.

Of the selected works, worthy of note is the reproduction of the banners Amarésimples/Amarécomplexo, ten years after their first installation. The work was created by Marcos Chaves in 2011, for the exhibition “Travessias“, which inaugurated the Galpão Bela Maré space, in Nova Holanda. The banners bearing the phrases were installed on Catwalk 9, in both directions of Avenida Brazil, which is to receive the tracks again during the exhibition at MAM Rio.
