02.09 - Two exhibitions at CAL

 

Urban violence is the material for two exhibitions at Casa da Cultura da América Latina (CAL).

 

In “Geografia da Imagem” (Geography of the image), Diego Castro gathers photographs that bring records of violence. The artist is interested in the sense of misrepresentation and the place of images in different contexts.

 

Formed by João Mascaro, student of architecture, and by Gabriela De Laurentiis, architect, the “Lâmina Collective” is also interested in urban photography. The duo presents the installation “Camadas: Narrativas Visuais da Violência” (Layers: Visual Narratives of Violence), which simulates a laboratory designed for the future and engaged in the research of the images of our days.

The exhibit Loucuras Anunciadas (Madness Announced)


Works by the Spanish artist Francisco de Goya come to Brasilia with the exhibit Loucuras Anunciadas (Madness Announced), at Caixa Cultural. The collection is also known as "Disparates", composed by twenty engravings.


The audience will get to see the most obscure and complex period of Goya's production, according to experts, from 1815 to 1820. Goya had decided not to publish them because of the persecution at the time.


The enigmatic engravings are the latest graphic works by Goya. "Disparates" is a series that reveals visions, violence, sex, debauchery of institutions related to the absolutist regime, criticism of customs and clergy.

Exhibition Tomie Ohtake: Cor e Corpo (Color and Body)

 

The exhibition Tomie Ohtake: Cor e Corpo (Color and Body) brings together 40 engravings, five paintings and three sculptures by the artist who continuously produced for over 60 years and lived for 101 years.

This exhibition accentuates the artistics interests of Tomie Ohtake, constantly renewed throughout her professional career. Tomie Ohtake has built a broad and complex plastic vocabulary. Form, matter and color were never thought of in a dissociated way, but they alternated their emphases in order to potentialize each other.


Although her works are associated with informalism by some, their forms stand out by referring to elements of nature and volumes that resemble lively movements.
