In an exhibition dedicated to the trajectory of artist Nelson Leirner’s over 50 years of work, pieces from three different moments of his career were gathered. The curator of the exhibition is Agnaldo Farias. The selected moments were: the beginning of his career, when he worked with more conventional elements. The second moment is when he achieved certain maturity (1965 – 1994), trying out and becoming familiar with other forms of expression, such as performances and interventions in public spaces. And the third moment is when the artist sees his work in a less rigorous manner and more as a hobby. He was born in São Paulo and there he lived with part of Brazil`s Art vanguard. When he returned there to inaugurate this exhibition, Nelson Leirner also exhibited an installation, which was being made for over 15 years, for the very first time.

His works compose one of the most provocative and diverse ensembles of art works in the national scene, where he has become one of the most recognized artists throughout the years, for his innovating impulse.

The exhibition Today is always yesterday of the Portuguese artist Daniel Blaufuks portrayed the issue of memory of public and private spaces. Photographs taken in his visit to the city, mixing the photographer’s demanding perspective and the available traveler’s perspective, were projected. Given that it’s a foreign point of view, although the artist had been to Rio a couple of times, he tried to approach the urban space subjectively, in a way that this particular view of the “marvelous city” provoked feelings and perspectives not yet explored.

The projected photogram formed a type of film for the artist insisted on creating a link between the photos. The exhibition occupied two rooms of the museum. This one installation is also a reflex of other works by the artist, where memory and reality are central themes.

The Placebo exhibition brought together works by the artist Tatiana Grinberg, at the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro. Curated by Luis Camilo Osorio, the exhibition took place between April and June 2011.

The works exhibited go beyond first impressions, they involve a broader sense, exploring touch, taste and hearing. The multisensorial work that entitled the exhibition was a capsule given to the visitors to put it in their mouths and perceive sound waves. Drawings, diagrams and notes related to the development of the installation were also exhibited on a panel so the audience could see the artist’s creative process.

The exhibition presented the work of German painter Georg Baselitz, for the first time in South America. The artist is one of the most important names in the contemporary visual art world. The curator responsible for Recent Paintings, which was exhibited from December 2010 to January 2011, is Paulo Venancio Filho.

In an installation made with great care, the public from São Paulo could take a look at a group of 30 paintings developed over the last twelve years. During this period, the artist revisited the human types he created in the 70s and 80s, which constitute the central motif of his work, giving them a new face.

From the proposal of occupying the SESC Belenzinho area in Sao Paulo, the artist Caio Reisewitz developed an innovating work for his standards, where photography and video formed a large installation. After doing historical research, a space, which reproduced the geographical nature of the neighborhood where SESC is located, was recreated. The artist created the image of a large waterfall, which was put on a huge glass window, creating a backlight effect. A video in constant movement as well as a waterfall, which gives the impression of not being still. In this work as well as in others, it’s possible to notice that the artist is interested in the issue of what is and isn’t true and the illusions that may be created from that.

Ituporanga, which means waterfall in Tupi, plays with this idea. The artist was able to experiment and go through new poetic forms through his main work material, which are technical images. This installation was part of a proposal, which stimulates the contact with contemporary art, provoking a different audience’s (such as the SESC audience) sensations and imagination.

The exhibition Fendas (Cracks) took place in the Monumental Room of the Museum of Modern Art of Rio de Janeiro (MAM-RJ) and it was celebrating twenty years of José Bechara’s career. The curator is Luiz Camillo Osório and it presented works from different moments of the artist’s trajectory, from his oxidized canvas to his most recent experimentations circling the House theme.

In the center of the Monumental Room, Bechara presented an audacious installation, which marked the exhibition. His series of suspended tables, entitled Run, originated from the unfolding of another one of this works with tables entitled Ok, Ok, Let’s Talk, which was shown in other institutions in 2006. In this sense, Fendas (Cracks) presented a career overview as well as the artist’s openness to new projects and future developments of his art.

Artist who has been exploring the relation between the individual and technology, in the visual arts and in everyday-life for over 3 decades. Tony Ousler brought the exhibition Projetor (Projector) to Oi Futuro Rio de Janeiro. The curator is Paulo Venancio Filho and it took place between November 2010 and January 2011, when Ousler installed several pieces remarkable, from a technological point of view.

Loneliness, fetishism, obsessions, hilarity, delirium and aggressiveness were among the disturbing psychological effects that the works brought to the audience. The intense dynamic between individuals and media processes is shown in its many facets, often with a tragicomic aspect as the central theme of the works.

CO-PRODUCTION

Automatica

The project Restraint was co-produced by Automatica and a Canadian company called Le Molior Group. The objective of this collective was to investigate what the Brazilian and Peruvian artistic contexts have in common. As well as analyze the contemporary art production through its cultural, social and political conjuncture.
The focus of the exhibition was the virtuality and the use of new multimedia technologies applied to artistic experiments and performance practices. For this reason, a new generation of artists, which have incorporated these new devices and are directly involved in this new dynamic of making art, marked by globalization disorder and political engagement, were gathered. In this sense, the choice for new medias would be a form of resistance and self-assertion for these artists, fighting against stereotypes and the fact that a large part of their work remains inaccessible, but inserted in a rapidly growing cultural scenario.

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.
