A Rio Museum

By MAM Rio

Rio de Janeiro was the most photographed city in the world after Paris until the 1950s, and even today, decades later, the city is still awakening interest of artists and photographers. The exhibition "A Rio Museum" brings together works of names from different generations, born in Rio or not, that somehow relate to the city. They are objects, paintings, photographs and installations in a selection that shows the "Rio spirit" in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, demonstrating how chaotic and creative this city is. Combining improvisation and rigor, the images reveal the contrast between public spaces of the city and the cliché of the "wonderful city". Amid the hills and streets are informal gestures and geometric structures, where feelings and conflicts and alternate identities remain in flux. The deterritorialized meaning of the spirit of Rio, emphasized in works that alternate notionsof local and global, feeding common concerns and challenges.
