Blacks in the Pool immediately conjures up a subversive image. The idea of certain bodies being present in spaces that they have not been accustomed to occupying in the history of Brazil. Places of entertainment and relaxation, but not only this. The pool can also be seen to represent a decent home, food on the table, or access to good healthcare and education. The pool represents many things: partying and working, enjoyment and safety. The phrase also conjures up the idea of a desire and a need for a revolt against prohibitions. Against the impediments to the leading of a full life put in place by centuries of colonization and its more recent ramifications. Against the predations of certain groups and their descendants. It is a call to protest against the processes that have produced, over time, unequal opportunities for white and non-white bodies in their quest for autonomy. An asymmetry that is therefore grounded in the ethnic identity of each and every inhabitant of Brazil and in the color of their skin.

This exhibition is the result of a training residency involving 15 artists from the Free Art School – ELÃ, the third edition of which was staged this year. The show addresses the issue of “Ecologies of Good Living”, a proposal that emerged from ELÃ meetings in 2022, in an attempt to think critically and politically about ecofriendly practices. The meetings raised awareness regarding the impact human beings have on the world, the historical structures that have brought us to this point and the practical steps that need to be taken towards achieving climate justice. Part of this process resulted in the exhibition Ecologies of Good Living, which features work produced by these training residents in a variety of media and styles.

The exhibition Indigenous Becoming presents the work of the artists Denilson Baniwa and Gustavo Caboco, both of whom deal with the warp and weft of time and space within the body of the Eva Klabin House Museum, located between the forest and the lagoon. The running theme of the occupation is transformation and memory. In an exercise in discovery, the artists visit the forest behind the Museum House, the Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, the Cantagalo Court, and the house’s permanent collection. From the forest, and the stones and living beings found there, the artists extract their own perceptions. The exhibition includes interventions in the environment of the house, along with live transmissions from the forest and sound interventions involving the sounds of the Lagoon. The artists suggest that it is reality that is fragile, not the imagination. Our imagination works in partnership with art and possesses the concreteness of a physical body. It is guided by the language of dreams, which communicates through the impulses of duration and becoming. Art has the capacity to bring us into direct contact with this substrate that is the potency of life.

The ECOAR Festival – Action Against Sexual Violence addressed three main issues: activation of group support networks; the body and sexual violence; and political and pedagogical language. The aim was to situate sexual violence in the context of other structural forms of violence for anyone interested in or affected by the issue. The event also provided a platform for the creation of networks of educators, health professionals, social workers, researchers, activists and artists, especially in the Maré neighborhood and port district of the city of Rio de Janeiro.

The initiative was inspired by and promoted in partnership with the Shameless! Festival—a one-day event in London in 2021, which brought together artists and activists to confront and change attitudes regarding sexual violence, to share ideas, and to imagine a world free of rape. Promoted by Birkbeck London University’s SHAME project and by the WOW – World Women’s Festival, the first edition of ECOAR took place in Rio de Janeiro and was curated and produced by the NGO Maré Networks. The aim of the meeting was to foster debate regarding the global crisis of sexual violence.

Occupation Nise da Silveira provides an in-depth look at the life of Nise da Silveira (1905-1999), one of Brazil’s most highly-acclaimed psychiatrists, whose work attempted to redraw the boundaries between the fields of medicine, philosophy, and art. Silveira proposed treatments that involve not only the spoken word—much undermined by irresponsible practices—but also living feeling, as embodied in core concepts of her work such as emotion-focused coping, catalyzing affect, animal-assisted therapy, and unrestricted respect for human being. This exhibition presents material from the personal archive of the doctor that deals with her family, her arrest, her relationship with the thinker and psychologist Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961), therapy through expressive activities, diving into the images of the unconscious, the archeology of the psyche – and her unique way of doing science.

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.
