Set up at the pillars of the Museum of Modern Art of Rio de Janeiro (MAM-RJ) during the first week of December 2010, the installation O Sonho de Darcy (Darcy’s Dream) is the artist Jum Nakao’s tribute to the anthropologist, thinker and professor Darcy Ribeiro. The work was part of the series of events Brasilidade (Brasility), sponsored by the Ministry of Culture (MinC)

Hanging from the ceiling until nearly touching the ground, a fishing net containing nine thousand transparent inflatables at different heights, constituted the work. Each inflatable carried one word of the essay O Povo Brasileiro (The Brazilian People), by Darcy Ribeiro. The public could simultaneously hear fragments of Darcy’s statement in many voices representative of the plurality of the Brazilian people through speakers which were spread around the hall.

GENERAL ARCHIVE is an initiative from many art galleries in Rio de Janeiro. It is a collective exhibition held every two years during the São Paulo Art Biennial. The large national and international public that attends this event and the proximity between Rio and São Paulo as well as the fact that many great Brazilian artists live in the city, are a great incentive for the exhibition.

In its 4th edition, GENERAL ARCHIVE fortifies itself in the national and international scene, as more than an exhibition, it’s a strategic action that aims to restore and reinforce Rio de Janeiro’s vocation as an important producer and disseminator of culture. The project intends to consolidate the reinvigoration (in progress over the last decade) of the market and institutions related to the arts in the city as well as reflect about the influence of the visual arts in the revitalization of urban spaces of the city, the economy, as well its importance in the social relations and a common dimension of existence.

A Dimensão GRÁFICA – Carlos Vergara (The Graphic Dimension – Carlos Vergara) consisted of one of the most comprehensive exhibitions of the graphic production of this artist from the south of Brazil. Monotype prints, photographs, etchings, silk-screen prints, book and record covers as well as 3D images offered the public a unique oppprtunity to experience 50 years of the work of one of the most important Brazilian artists of the twentieth century.

The exhibition took place at the Museum of Modern Art of Rio de Janeiro, between November 2009 and March 2010 and was curated by the art collector George Kornis. Automatica helped the artist set up a kind of studio inside MAM-RJ, for the installation of his exhibition in the museum, in constant dialogue with its architecture.

The exhibition, which has the name of the artist, Iole de Freitas inaugurated in October 2009 (and continued showing until February 2010). During a new phase in Casa França-Brasil, after a long period of renovation which finished in April of that same year. Located in downtown Rio, the exhibition of Iole offered an innovative intervention in the classic ambience of the building and its majestic space.

The work consisted of an installation a a system of lines made of steel tubing that supported twisted sheets of transparent polycarbonate which lead the public to experience a new relation with the space. Overlapping lines and planes, the work of the artist and the architecture merged in a common movement, reflected by nuances of light and tension.

Curated by Jair de Souza and Maurício Lissovsky, the exhibition A imagem do Brasil no tempo da Segunda Guerra (The Image of Brazil During The Second World War) took place at Centro Cultural da Justiça Eleitoral, Rio de Janeiro, from December, 2009 to January 2010. The objective was to present a multimedia panorama of Brazil’s participation in the greatest world conflict of the twentieth century.

The installation revolved around the contrast between three graphic registers of the period: the official photographs taken by The Estado Novo (New State), under the leadership of Getulio Vargas, the informal photos made by Life Magazine, in accordance with the North American perspective of integrating Brazil into the block of allies and finally, the popular point of view presented by the caricatures of Nassara and J. Carlos.

With the intention of introducing the Brazilian public to the work of French landscape artist Auguste François Marie Glaziou (1833-1906), the exhibition Glaziou e os jardins sinuosos (Glaziou and the Winding Gardens), curated by Anna Paula Martins, took place at the Botanical Gardens, from November 2009 to January 2010. The exhibition was produced by Automatica, using a series of stands along with graphic displays in the area. A a wide range of original documentation of “Glaziou” work was shown.

This exhibition presented images and projects rearding the decisive role this landscape artist had on the urban development of Rio de Janeiro in the nineteenth century, for the first time ever. This exhibition relied on a large professional staff, and included projections and an original sound track.
