FestFoto Iberê Camargo Foundation, Av. Father Cacique, 2000 - Porto Alegre, RS
The Porto Alegre International Photography Festival turns 15 years old. The confinement triggered never-before-seen processes of connection and disconnection, the experience of living in individualized environments and insecurity in the face of the unknown reinforced the desire for control – albeit illusory – over the maintenance of life. In parallel, the planet has never been so attacked by human behavior of rare hostility. "In this dystopia, the imposition of isolation forced the invention of new ways of feeling and populating the distances, creating a Terrarium of possible connections, theme of the 15th edition of FestFoto", explains the organization of the event. The exhibition was divided into three parts and also intends a dialogue with central elements of the constitution of Brazil, on the occasion of the passage of the bicentennial of Independence.

Jungle Galeria Marilia Razuk , R. Jerônimo da Veiga, 131 - Itaim Bibi, São Paulo - SP, 04536-000
The individual by Fabrício Lopez brings a scenario of urgency in works that express the intensity of the elements, lines, figures and suggestions of figures. Not by chance, among the main characteristics of his work is the stretching of the limits of engraving. According to José Augusto Ribeiro, artistic director of the gallery and author of the text that accompanies the show, “these are concerns that arise from the start in the scale of the works, denoting the public vocation and the desire to cover this production. And not that these are necessarily large works, nor are they among the largest ever made by the artist. But they are bulky works, due to the proportions in which the relationships between image, support and architecture take place”, he says.

Gira – Jarbas Lopes Museum of Art of Rio, Praça Mauá, 5, Center - Rio de Janeiro
Individual exhibition promotes a utopian vision of the world and seeks to instigate a questioning about the final destination of the objects we discard. In the exhibition, the artist with thirty years of experience in Brazilian contemporary art deals directly with the spectator, inviting the public to be in the museum and to interact with the works, creating an active participation with some of the pieces. Jarbas' creative process permeates a reconfiguration of objects and aesthetic experiences, giving new meaning and movement, always permeated by a critical tone. The artist uses objects that were discarded on the streets, such as newspapers, magazines, banners for concerts and even political propaganda, which gain new meanings. He creates environments that bring key stories to broaden the edges of art and uses everyday materials such as cars, bicycles, paints and rubber bands.

GRAPHICS. imperfect geometry / dilated cavities MAC Dragão - Museum of Contemporary Art of Ceará, Rua Dragão do Mar, 81 - Praia de Iracema - Fortaleza (CE)
Curated by Jacqueline Medeiros, the solo show by Eduardo Frota from Fortaleza brings together large-scale drawings and elaborations on the plane of the museum's walls. Starting from the premise that, in a museum of contemporary art, the work must not be mediated by any support, the artist breaks through the surface of the concrete materiality of the museum to create a new physicality. With a broad and direct artistic intervention in the architecture of the museum itself, Frota raises questions about art, architecture, flow, space and time, such as what it means to be a contemporary art museum from the architectural point of view, art circuits in Brazil or even to what extent the work of a contemporary artist is submitted to the architecture of the exhibition space.

Moving Collection | Arjan Martins and Laura Belém Inhotim, Rua B, 20, Inhotim - Brumadinho (MG)
In 2022, the Acervo em Movimento project brings Arjan Martins and Laura Belém into focus. On the lake between Galerias Mata and True Rouge, the visitor will come across two rowing boats equipped with spotlights that light up, facing each other, on the water. The lights on one of the boats come on, while those on the other remain off; after 20 seconds they reverse. It is "Enamorados", by Laura Belém. Arjan Martins, on the other hand, exhibits devices intended to indicate the direction of the winds, which merge with maritime flags and their international codes to transmit messages between vessels and ports. “In the fusion of these two elements, windsocks and nautical flags, Arjan deals with the transit of bodies across the oceans, the trafficking of enslaved people and the diasporas caused by colonial movements”, explains Douglas de Freitas, curator of Inhotim.
