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.

Curated by Paulo Herkenhoff, Oi Futuro Rio de Janeiro hosted the exhibition Qualia, by Simone Michelin, between September and October 2010. The result of an intricate plot between technological devices and information coming from sócio-economical backgrounds, the exhibition presented an original way of thinking about everyday problems such as urban violence and drug use.

This innovative work was divided in two spaces, both introducing new technogical resources, such as laser printing on a latex surface, showing sequences developed from data on the number of casualties occurring in confrontations with the police in Rio de Janeiro, and 3D projection in mirrowed rooms, enlarging images of narcotic molecules (such as THC), which were viewed through special glasses offered to the public.

Revideo, held in the Oi Futuro branch of Rio de Janeiro between September and October 1020, was a unique opportunity for the public of Rio to watch a survey of the work as a vídeoperformer of the artist Lenora de Barros.

Curated by Alberto Saraiva, the exhibition showed all the vídeos made by the artist over 25 years. The videoperformances are representative not only of Lenora’s career as a pioneer of the genre, but also of Brazilian Art and its dialogue with other languages.

Opening in São Paulo and travelling to other áreas of the country, Automática produced the installation of the retrospective of Hélio Oiticica’s work in Rio de Janeiro. Between October and December 2010, the work of one of the most important Brazilian artists was shown simultaneously in Casa França-Brasil, Paço Imperial and a number of public places of the city.

Titled Museu é o Mundo (Museum is the World), the curatorial work of César Oiticica Filho and Fernando Cocchiarale brought together a series of works in order to expose his trajectory from the metaesquemas of the 50s until his last penetráveis (penetrables) and pieces done at the end of his life, still in 1980. The exhibition also included a seminar curated by Felipe Scovino, which reunited some specialists on the work of Oiticica.

Between July and November 2010, the Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo presented the installation A soma dos dias (The Sum of the Days), by Carlito Carvalhosa. The title refers to the daily sounds recorded and reproduced by speakers in the space. The work was specially developed for the third edition of the Projeto Octono Arte Contemporânea (Octagon Contemporary Art Project), developed by the institution and curated by Ivo Mesquita.

Carlito’s work, composed of aluminum strips that hold large pieces of fabric wrapping the entire central space of the museum, combines the beauty of the installation with the physical presence of the music of the North American musician and composer Philip Glass. The acclaimed musician, was also present and gave two piano concerts in the institution.

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.

Between November 2008 and February 2009, the collective Chelpa Ferro exhibited in the Museu de Arte de Pampulha, Belo Horizonte, the installation Acusma. It consisted of a set of ceramic vases connected to speakers and cables, causing a sort of sound hallucination. The contrast between the delicate craftsmanship of the vases and the auditive disturbance created by the sound piece is the core of this work, once again produced by Automatica.
