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.

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.

This time with the work of João Modé, Automatica produced an exhibition for Projeto Respiração (Project Respiration). Conceived by curator Marcio Doctors, the idea of establishing a connection between the classic collection of the Fundação Eva Klabin and contemporary art became, over the years, one of the major initiatives in the area of Brazilian visual arts.

For this edition, João Modé offers with Invisíveis (Invisibles), small and subtle transformations in the pieces making up the collection of the house, presenting an esthetic viewing into the memory of its famous inhabitant. In the sounds and smells of the past, in the memory of the experience of other times and in recording the passage of time, Modé created an atmosphere both affectionate and challenging to the sensitivity of each visitor.

Curated by Agnaldo Farias and Jacopo Crivelli, Athos Bulcão – Compositor de Espaços (Athos Bulcão — Composer of Spaces) was held in the Museu Nacional do Conjunto Cultural da Republica, in Brasilia, in March and April 2009.

The exhibition was constructed with two main objectives: to recontextualize, preserving real scale , the production of tiles and other architectural elements, and to reveal the process by which the artist collaborated with his fellow architects, by means of technical drawings, floor plans and sketches.
