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.

DEDICADED TO ROGER AND LUCILA WRIGHT AND REYNALDO ROELS JR.

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.
