The Line Collector presents Claudio Paiva’s trajectory through a significant set of works for the first time. To follow the development of his oeuvre, many periods of his production, from the 60s to his last series in 2011, were researched. The exhibition concerns itself in preserving Paiva’s work and his place in Brazilian art history.
Curated by Evandro Salles, Cultural Director of MAR, the exhibition gathers about 250 pieces by 112 artists, with works that range from the 19 th century till the present day. Included are names such as Marc Ferrez, Kurt Klagsbrunn, Pierre Verger, Walter Firmo, Evandro Teixeira, Luiz Braga, Rodrigo Braga, Marcos Bonisson and Rogério Reis, among others.
Dja Guata Porã: Indigenous Rio de Janeiro presents a pathway between the history and the contemporaneity of the indigenous cultures of this region of Brazil. Conceived in a participatory fashion, stemming from the backbone of the collaboration of peoples, villages, movements and indigenous residents of Rio state and city, the exhibition has experienced unconventional modes of construction of meaning in the museum field and in the heart of curatorial activity.
This is the first time that MAR has held an exhibition outside its base in Praça Mauá, as well as being one of the richest curatorial partnerships that we have developed to date. The project arose because of a desire to think collectively, born from a prospective vision on the complexity of the history of the Quitandinha Palace, where today stands the Petropolis branch of Sesc.
Inside is the first exhibition in the Room of Encounters. It was designed as a plural set which brings together, juxtaposes and integrates in a vast poetic field, works that provide approaches that go beyond mere contemplation, inviting the public to reflect on and dive into the complex universe of art.
