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.

Conceived in two chapters, for two cities, and for two unique spaces of modernist Brazilian architecture – the Museum of Modern Art (Museu de Arte Moderno), in Rio de Janeiro, and the Casa Modernista, in São Paulo -, the exhibitions of the artists Daniel Steegmann Mangrané and Philippe Van Snick are mainly intended to underline the dualism and simultaneity in the work of both.

If, for Daniel Steegmann Mangrané (born 1977), the artistic process takes place in the dialog between division and union, between geometric and organic forms, and between culture and nature, for Philippe Van Snick (1946), on the other hand, the conditions of material perception are determined by mathematical and arithmetical principles (especially in his early works), and more recently by the sensibility which, according to the artist, is a “form of mental perception”. In the work of both, the views and experience (physical, subjective, political) of the spectator acquire a provisional and fragmented character, and relate, kaleidoscopically, to the distribution of the elements in the surrounding world.

The two exhibitions bring together their own dynamic, and it is not necessary to see one to know how the other’s “story ends”. If they resemble anything, it would be an echo, the same sound heard differently.
