The fifth edition of the exhibition Travessias (Crossings), open to the public from May 6th to July 8th 2017, was curated by Moacir dos Anjos and presents work by 16 artists. Travessias is an initiative of the Observatório de Favelas and the producer Automatica, in collaboration with Rua Arquitetos and Redes de Desenvolvimento da Maré. The aim of the project is to stage an exhibition on contemporary art exhibition in the Maré favela complex, annually, together with talks, workshops and educational activities. The crossing that the project proposes extends beyond the geographical dimension that its title and location suggest, and also refers to the scale and diversity of the dialogue that art can have with society.

Under the title EMERGÊNCIA (Emergency), the exhibition makes reference both to the urgency of the times we are living in and the emergence of images and gestures that confront the regressive social forces that persist in Brazil today.

EMERGÊNCIA comprises work produced by 16 artists from different backgrounds and present in a variety of media. These are: Bárbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca, Clara Ianni, Daniel Lima, Gustavo Speridião, Jaime Lauriano, Jota Mombaça, Lais Myrrha, Lourival Cuquinha, Mariana Lacerda and Pedro Marques, Marilá Dardot, Paulo Nazareth, Regina Parra, Rosana Palazyan and Thiago Martins de Melo. In formulating answers to the urgent issues arising in Brazil, the works of these artists play their part in creating more critical and inclusive modes of representing contemporary Brazil.

From May 27th to July 23rd 2017, Caixa Cultural Rio is staging the exhibition Quase pinturas, by the artist Fabio Cardoso. The exhibition comprises a series of 13 figurative oil paintings, bearing the same name, never before seen in Rio. Curated by the art critic Agnaldo Frias.

In creating these works, Fabio Cardoso starts out with a canvas covered in black paint; he then removes the paint to reveal scenes registered with a cell-phone camera. Finally, the artist places a thin layer of transparent or coloured oil paint over the canvas, that suggests a stain – a fine coat of paint applied to the painting, revealing the ink underneath – conferring a unique luminosity on the works.

The act of removing ink from the canvas to create this series renders it similar to the sculptural process, with the raw material being sculpted to reveal the forms. Hence the title, Quase pinturas (Almost Paintings)

On March 20th 2017, the Residência Belojardim project began, in the city of Belo Jardim, 180 km from Recife. With the curatorship of Cristiana Tejo and Kiki Mazzucchelli, it begins with a two month residence by the artist Marcelo Silveira in the town. The general idea is to bring contemporary artists to Belo Jardim,  to encourage contact between local people and the visual arts.

Residência Belojardim is a long-term project that seeks to prompt discussions about the sociocultural meaning of the term northeast and the region’s art legacy today, based on an in-situ experience in the city of Belo Jardim. Each year, an artist will be invited to live in the city for a period of two months, and develop specially commissioned projects for the local context. The Residência Belojardim project also provides for the holding of a series of parallel events that will be developed in close dialogue with the proposals of the resident artists, which may include talks, performances, film showings, workshops and other activities.

During his stay in the city, Marcelo Silveira has presented eight works, focusing on a different one each week. The artist has transformed the old candy factory, Mariola, into his studio, and here he holdslunch meetings with different groups from the city . The idea is that the work of the week, its artistic philosophy andreflections can shape the conversation: “It’s at the table that the best conversations take place, hence our proposal to bring people together around it. The focus is not on the food, which is an secondary element of the process,” he explains. The Belo Jardim studio was opened up to welcome those interested in engaging in dialogue. Silveira has a particular concern with the need to develop pacts, exchanges and conversations. The artist intends to cast a sensitive eye over the city, finding beauty and aesthetic pleasure in places and practices that perhaps pass unnoticed in its day-to-day life.

CENOGRAPHY

HO Produções e Eventos

In his History of Eternity, Jorge Luis Borges said “in Plato’s Timaeus, we read that time is an moving image of eternity; and  that it is just a chord that distracts no one from the conviction that eternity is an image made from the substance of time. This image, this coarse word enriched by human discord, is what I propose to historicize. Gabriela Machado, in the exhibition Things that fit in my hand produces herown narrative about time. A non-linear time, composed of labyrinths and sculpted by hands. The result of 3 years’ work, the sculptures in this exhibition show the result of a formalization of the passing of time and how it can be represented based on a perception of space.

Conceived especially for the Galeria do Espaço Cultural BNDES (BNDES Cultural Space Gallery), in a building considered to be one of the landmarks of Rio architecture of the second half of the 20 th century, Limitless is curated by Felipe Scovino and includes works by Amalia Giacomini, Eduardo Coimbra and Artur Lescher. Based on the curator and artists’ relationship with the space, a landscape is invented, a place is revealed and a reality emerges.
The relationship between the urbanity of the bank building, a vertical structure that has taken over and occupies its space in the centre of the city, and the lack of connection between the gallery, and the landscape and its surroundings – even while it forms an integral part of them – were the points of departure for the conception of the exhibition.
“Based on two central disciplines – architecture and landscape – which are intimately linked to contemporary art, the three artists have created the idea of an invented landscape or the appearance of a place”, explains Scovino. “Somehow, like architects lacking precision, they have brought a limitless landscape within the white cube, the sacred space of the gallery”.

The problem of parking in the centre of São Paulo has existed since the 1940s. Between 1960 and 1980, 35 car parks, with mechanized parking, were built in the city. The largest, with over 600 parking spaces and up to 38 levels, are among the tallest in the world. Despite the migration of investment to new areas, with a total fleet of 7 million vehicles, the car parks remain in the historical centre as urban resources of great utility. The research carried out by Felipe Russo in recent years reveals the mysterious and inaccessible interior of these constructions, until then only known from their raw, phantasmagorical exteriors.

The exhibition, Garagem Automática (Automatic Car Park), presents, in novel form, a study of this urban typology, conducted in São Paulo. The 25 photographs taken in 4×5” format which comprise the exhibition, enable visitors to discover the intimate interiors of these buildings, which remain inaccessible to users.

TRAINEE

Jaqueline Dias

In recent years, the photographer Tuca Vieira has dedicated himself to international projects of urban documentation. The exhibition, Atlas fotográfico da cidade de São Paulo e seus arredores (Photographic Atlas of São Paulo and its Suburbs) presents records of the city in its full extent, dividing it into 203 quadrants similar to those used in the former Guia 4 Rodas de São Paulo street guide. Since 2015, Vieira has travelled around the city and taken photographs in 4×5” format in each of these geographical divisions. This strategy has allowed him to create a representation of the metropolitan region through samples,  uninfluenced by the photographer’s personal preferences. Of the discussions that the project provokes, we highlight the creation of a methodology to represent a vast territory, authorship and innovation in photographic projects, mobility in the metropolis, as well as issues such as the urban development of the city and antecedent projects, like that of Militão Augusto de Azevedo, a photographer from the 19th century, whose work the museum keeps in its collection.

The exhibition, Anônimos Famosos (Famous Unknown People) is a continuation of the photographic studies of Gustavo Malheiros, dedicated to characters famous among the population of the neighbourhoods of Rio de Janeiro – whether due to the peculiarity of their clothes, their irreverent behaviour or the notoriety of their work.

In a city that is increasingly attracting global attention, everything of importance seems to happen in its streets. It was thinking about the characters that pass through them and make their everyday life more interesting, that the idea for the book, Famous Unknown People, emerged in 2001. A further edition was produced in 2011. Rejecting the photographic stereotypes that make Rio famous around the world and which are incessantly recycled even today, Malheiros presents a series of portraits of the city’s true protagonists. The exhibition, comprising approximately 45 photographs, is a continuation of the two books published on the subject by the photographer.

This exhibition heralds a new phase in Barrão’s output. The plurality of colors in his previous work has given way to a monochrome, and two new materials are investigated: resin and plaster. The work has taken on a more sober feel, which ties in with our current moment. This statement makes more sense if we recall that this was once a customs building, and therefore the port of entry for immigrants. The artist has installed a stall and other “islands,” which articulate different territories inside the Casa França-Brasil space. How can such diverse forms, desires, origins, and histories occupy the same space? Somewhere between a place of passage and a makeshift shelter, this territory/customs building has encountered in the artist’s objects a (utopian) metaphor for the world: in his inventive capacity to ally different forms that, separately, would be completely incompatible, like a jigsaw puzzle, these pieces fit together, share the same terrain, find their counterparts, and make sense. Ultimately, if we were to shift these procedures to a political world view, all social and political differences would be in better balance.
