During the month of July of 2007, the Tenda da Vivo, in Ipanema Beach, was the stage for the Ação Educativa Eu Vivo Cinema Panamericano. (I Live Panamerican Cinema Educational Action) The Ação Educativa(Educational Action) was an event devoted to activities related to the theme of cultural diversity in the Americas. Its purpose was to promote a reflection on the differences between the American people on the occasion of the Panamerican Games held in Rio de Janeiro in 2007. Through 3 different activities — Cinema, Storytelling and Music workshops — the visiting groups had the opportunity of experiencing and interacting with the habits of different cultures in order to critically enlarge their own relationship with the contemporary world.

Conceived by the professor and literary critic Heloisa Buarque de Hollanda, the exhibit Blooks, Tribos e Letras na Rede (Blooks · Tribes and Words on the Net) highlighted the vast universe of the word that circulates in the internet, through interactive blogs, podcasts and sites, with the objective to map the literary creation of the new millenium. Examining 5 environments, the exhibit dives into the world of literary practice — which may include poetry, short stories, the interactive literature of the blogs, comics, graphics and cartoons — without failing to reflect the sense of excess characteristic of the net.

Curated by Paulo Herkenhoff, Atlas América (Atlas of the Americas) was held in Oi Futuro, Rio de Janeiro, between June and August 2007. The exhibition brought together 15 artists from different nationalities: Alan Michelson (EUA), Anna Maria Maiolino (Brasil), Damián Ortega (México), Dirceu Maués (Brasil), Donna Conlon (EUA), Fatimah Tuggar (Nigéria), Jennifer Allora e Guillermo Calzadilla (EUA e Cuba), Javier Tellez (Venezuela), José Alejandro Restrepo (Colômbia), Katie van Scherpenberg (Brasil), Kimsooja (Corea), Naiah Mendonça (Brasil), Miguel Angel Rios (Argentina) e Simone Michelin (Brasil). This collective perspective between countries and generations resulted in a selection of work that presented a mix of artists and media that offered the public a sort of critical and aesthetic mapping of contemporary production in the Americas.

A Festival that brought together artists and critics from the fields of visual arts, dance, drama and literature, Contemporâneo (Contemporary) was held in Oi Futuro (Rio de Janeiro), in December 2006. Occupying the exhibit gallery, the theater and other areas of that space for 5 days, the event presented simultaneously a series of performances, theater and dance, video projections, readings, debates and book launches

With curators from different generations working collectively in each área, and an intensive schedule, the organization of the event involved numerous professionals and institutions expanding the working know-how of Automatica into other areas besides the visual arts.

Visita (Visit) was the fourth exhibition held by Automática for Projeto Respiração (Breathing Project) organized by Marcio Doctors in the Fundação Eva Klabin since 2004. This time, the carioca Paulo Vivacqua applied his spatial perspective in the use of light and sound, creating new environments and possibilities for the aesthetic enjoyment of the collection lodged in this house-museum.

The installation of the work involved the use of speakers, electric wiring, fluorescent lights, glass, mirrors and other devices, intended to create a subtle relationship between the work of Vivacqua, the household objects and the visiting public.

Conceived to last two years, the exhibition Nise da Silveira: Caminhos de uma Psiquiatra Rebelde (Nise da Silveira: Paths of a Rebel Psychiatrist) was installed in 2006 in the Museu de Imagens to Inconsciente. The exhibition brought together in three modules a broad biographical material of the psychiatrist’s revolutionary life, as well as the rich scientific/artistic collection of the work of the inmates of the former National Psychiatrist Center of Engenho de Dentro (now Institute Nise da Silveira).

The installation introduces, through photographs, works and texts, the remarkable professional life of Nise, the contact and definitive support for the first inmate artists beginning in the 50s, and for the “live museum”, which consisted of the collection of the Institute’s contemporary artists. These segments were joined to a detailed chronology of the trajectory of one of the greatest Brazilians of our history.

Estabilidade Provisória (Provisional Stability) was the third exhibition produced by Automatica for Projeto Respiração (Breathing Project), which is organized by Marcio Doctors and has been held at the Fundação Eva Klabin since 2004. As suggested by the title, the exhibition of this collective of artists consisted in actions of dislocation, intervention, and erasure, subtle and provocative at the same time, in the space of the house-museum and its collection.

Working with a series of banal elements of our daily life — such as pots, aluminum paper, cigarette butts, beer glasses, thermos bottles — side to side with sophisticated antique pieces, the installation of the exhibition was fundamental to allow the artists’ ideas to achieve their aesthetic and poetic intentions.
