Our house, my life is an installation by Nelson Leirner to mark the tenth anniversary of the Breathing Project at Fundação Eva Klabin.

The artist decided to create a show apartment from the government’s My House, My Life housing program in one of the rooms from the Eva Klabin house museum, transforming this luxury haven into a fully furnished budget apartment with living and sleeping areas, bathroom and kitchen for a family of four.

Drawing on humor and irony in their broadest sense, Leirner probes the situations he comes across with a critical irony that questions the prevailing standards in politics, art, and social and economic compacts. This was his strategy in creating a new home inside the Eva Klabin house museum, but this time on a shoestring budget.

The concept and design of architectural and landscape projects of Oscar Niemeyer and Burle Marx to the most important park in the city of São Paulo in drawings, photographs, models, panels, plans and maps. The show establishes a relationship between the park and the new period of modern architecture that begins to establish in Brazil in the year of its inauguration in 1954. The curators Rodrigo Queiroz and Anne Barone selected four panels present in the first exhibition held at Oca, event who was part of the celebrations of the fourth centenary of the Foundation of São Paulo.

“Like a kind of modern clearing in the suburbs, the buildings in Ibirapuera Park came at the same time as São Paulo was experiencing a fast period of growth. (…)The creation of Ibirapuera Park ushered in a new level of awareness about our modern condition that reached beyond representation detached from the real world, conferring a unique aesthetic meaning to all domains of life, from the visual arts to urbanism.” Rodrigo Queiroz and Ana Barone curators

The Rio Design Championship was held at Centro Carioca de Design / Studio-X. The 25 contestants were split into three groups coordinated by Chris Calvet (Brazil) + Uta Eisenreich (Germany), Nina Paim (Brazil) + Julia Born (Switzerland), and João Doria (Brazil). The participants chose their groups according to their perceived affinities, and designed projects during the first two days. These designs were then discussed in a public round table session with critic, curator, and essayist Frederico Coelho and artist Eduardo Coimbra. The designs of games (sets of rules and public demonstrations), videos, installations, projections on screens, projections in the space/environment (mapping), and publications were exhibited to the public on the last day of the event, Saturday, August 30.

Travessias 3 – Contemporary Art at Maré opened to the public on August 23 at Galpão Bela Maré, in Nova Holanda, north zone of Rio de Janeiro, and will remain there until November 16, free of charge.

This, the third Travessias exhibition, celebrates a new encounter between contemporary visual arts and a community space. The interaction between established artists from different parts of Brazil and young photographers from the Maré community is organized by artist Daniel Senise. It combines a multiplicity of artistic languages: film, painting, installation, photography, and objects. Travessias 3 contains new and past works by Barrão, Dora Longo Bahia, Sandra Kogut, Mauro Restiffe, Jonathas de Andrade, Cao Guimarães, and Luiz Zerbini, together with photographs from Imagens do Povo, a program run by Observatório de Favelas.

This is an exhibition, a space for interchange, an opportunity for the democratic circulation of information and new ways of conceiving of the Complexo da Maré community. Without any social or territorial distinctions, Travessias makes the favela itself an aesthetic point of reference with the aim of fostering creation and fruition.

Travessias 3 is sponsored by Petrobras through the state culture law (ICMS tax benefit), and the Rio de Janeiro Municipal Department of Culture through its Program to Support Culture in Rio. It is produced by Automatica Produção Contemporânea and Observatório de Favelas, and counts on the partnership of Redes de Desenvolvimento da Maré and RUA Arquitetos.

Waltercio Caldas, the guest artist for the fifth edition of the Vão project, has brought his installation, Mar de Exemplo, to Sesc Belenzinho, where 30 stainless steel structures are carefully arranged in an bid to subvert the space of the atrium and its main features, like its light, transparency, and the circulation of visitors.

By setting up predominantly horizontal lines with four words that are repeated to the point of being absorbed and dissolved into the environment, Mar de Exemplo invites the viewers to be part of the work, relating in their own way to the planes created through their own interpretations and significations.

Cabeça – Milton Machado (Head – Milton Machado) is the first retrospective of the artist’s work to mark his 45th year of activity. It includes over a hundred works – drawings, paintings, photographs, videos, and sculptures – produced between 1969 and 2014, many for the first time. Milton Machado belongs to a group of artists who started working in the 1970s, whose output is strongly marked by conceptual investigations and experimentation, with works characteristically organized into series of elements, tending to lend the exhibition spaces an installation-like feeling. This exhibition displays some important works, like Módulo de Destruição (Module of Destruction), a sculpture produced here in a new version (1990-2010-2014) for the rotunda, and a series of drawings, Conspiração Arquitetura (Architecture Conspiracy),addressing topics related to architecture and urbanism, exhibited for the first time in 1981 at Galeria Sergio Milliet, Funarte, Rio de Janeiro. Most of the works from the series are part of the Gilberto Chateaubriand/MAM-RJ collection, and are rarely seen by the public.

Do Valongo à Favela: Imaginário e Periferia (From Valongo to the Favela: Imagination and Periphery), an exhibition currently on at MAR under the curatorship of Rafael Cardoso and Clarissa Diniz, covers two historical landmarks. The first is Valongo harbor, where slaves disembarked in Brazil, making it the world’s largest slave trade outpost in the nineteenth century. Valongo therefore represents the tragedy of slavery and the African diaspora. The second has to do with the emergence of favelas as the most flagrant sign of the new exclusion of freed men and women, still subject to slavocratic values and post-colonial power. Both are fundamental for considering, rediscovering, and reinventing the land on which MAR stands, which is what the museum proposes with its Rio-oriented curatorial program.

Indeed, this exhibition takes a step forward in bringing the museum closer to its immediate vicinity by addressing the way this area has been seen and represented over the years. Organized into eight units named after oral statements, song lyrics, and excerpts from books, the exhibition takes us on a journey from when this area was first inhabited, through its importance to the colonial and republican history of Brazil, to the present day, introducing a variety of historical and contemporary works, episodes, and characters that have consistently reinvented this corner of the city.

An installation with four projections of images transiting by themes of violence and power, worked simultaneously on four Voil screens with different audios, constitutes the core of the exhibition Gritos Surdos from Miguel Rio Branco that will occupy Casa França-Brasil from March 25th.

The exhibition features installations made by the artist in the early 2000s, which were never displayed in Rio de Janeiro.

Besides the work that will be in the central room of Casa França-Brasil, one of the side rooms with display a projection with fixed audio and image.

The other will reveal a “site specific” in neon, in which several windscreen car glasses, injured or shot, reflect fluorescent lights that flash intermittently, profiled by lines of red neon, with Cibachrome photographs.

The exhibition Despertar/Éveil/Alive is inspired by a distant and primordial moment: the origin of life, the coming alive of matter.

The exhibition brings together kinetic and robotic works which use movement to express the essence of the living. By way of various technologies, these works cause their components move, shake, wriggle and unfold in a way that evokes biological processes and primitive living beings. The works chosen for Despertar/Éveil/Alive present living forms in their nascent, imprecise states and thus take leave of the human figure to return to the beginnings of the organic world. They are of the order of the pre, the sub or maybe the intra-human. Not a single work among them even represents an animal species or a recognizable organ or organism. Thanks to this semantic imprecision and the rudimentary forms, they confront us with the living in its secret and intimate dimension.

Using a practice already present in his work, monotype, Carlos Vergara prints on scarves traces of severeal areas where he passed along his career. In the exhibition Shroud at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Niteroi, are presented works carried out in places like India, Cappadocia, Kazakhstan, London, Pantanal, São Miguel das Missões and Salvador. In addition to the scarves, the exhibition consists of paintings, photographs worked in real and virtual 3D, photographs, monotypes in large format, video and installations. In the courtyard of the museum, are about 30 sculptures of “Freedom” project carried out with photographs and barred doors cells collected in the wreckage of the Frei Caneca Penitentiary.

The exhibition addresses, therefore, one of the fundamental features in the artist production: an artistic practice primarily accomplished by printing traces that gives the poetics of displacement and appropriation of places visited. “This is possible by my source on condition of transience, without ceasing to considering interpersonal relationships built in the process, which became important in the chain of my poetrya”, says the artist. Throughout this poetics of displacement and for more than five decades of artistic life, Carlos Vergara accumulated experience and intensive research in materials and work techniques. This exhibition is an invitation to travel and imagination.

The exhibition Antonio Manuel at the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro, covers the recent and new production of the artist, with two installations made especially for the location, and also emblematic works of his career, setting an unprecedented body of work, never assembled before. This exhibition presents to the public a significant sample of the artist’s production, from the 1980s until the present day.

For the exhibition, which occupies an area of about 1,800 square meters on the second floor of the museum, the artist recreates the installations “Fantasma” (1994/2013), Collection of the Museum – acquired through the Petrobras Visual Arts bidding in 2001 – “Frutos do Espaço” (1980/2013), “Ocupações/ Descobrimentos” (1998/ 2013), “Sucessão de Fatos” (2003/ 2013). Antonio Manuel is developing, especially for this show, two installations: “Até que a imagem desapareça” and “Nave” that uses water. About ten paintings from private collections and from the collection of the artist, produced between 1985 and 2013 and the video Semi-Ótica (1975) complete the exhibition.

The artist says, “is a set that was never presented and that communicates, an installation dialogue with the other. A common characteristic is that all facilities are participatory”.
