Shelter and Land
First exhibition of the project Art and Society in Brazil, dedicated to artists and initiatives analyzing the forces in conflict in the urban, social, and cultural transformations that have taken place in the public/private space. Curated by Paulo Herkenhoff, and Clarissa Diniz.
Constructive Will in the Fadel Collection
The exhibition presents the steps followed by the constructive ideas set in Brazil, through individual research and collective movements, from the first approaches of the European avant-garde art in the early decades of the 20th century, to its development between 1960 and 1980, when experimentalism incorporated socio-political issues, conceptualism, and the revision of modernism. Curated by Paulo Herkenhoff, Roberto Conduru, still on view until 20 October 2013.
