More than any other continent, modern Africa lives in a time that appears to be compromised. Besides the country being barely over 50, it is already older than its average population. Nevertheless, it still hasn’t opened its doors entirely to industrialization; as a matter of fact, most of its economic activity is centered around trade. The artists in this exhibition are faced with these challenges and have to deal with englobing the energy released by such. They do this by referring to the classic satirical resources; whereas, they are capable of using the ludicrous to fuel the misery. The show relies on names such as Ibrahim Mahama, Leonce Raphael Agbodjelou, Kudzanai Chiurai, Omar Victor Diop, J. D. ‘Okhai Ojeikere, and others. Curatorship: Alfons Hug

Creating circuits of aesthetic experiences that connect the institution and the city.

With curatorship by Marcello Dantas, the public art show where the artists Daniel Arsham and Makoto Azuma created unpublished large-scale pieces that were implemented at the Flamengo Aterro in Rio de Janeiro. In the “Oi Futuro” space there was a contextual exhibition about each one of the artists. American-born, Daniel Arsham balances the fine line between art, architecture, and performance. Meanwhile, Makoto dedicates himself to botanical sculptures and his pieces juxtapose themselves to traditional Japanese Ikebana art.​

Australian artist Patricia Piccinini dwells on how to morph the topic of genetic mutation with art. To do so, she uses realism as a language, presenting the visitor with a universe of unknown creatures that still look plausible and surprisingly affectionate. “ComCiencia” (With Science) is a neologism of double meaning which connects Conscience with Science and proposes to the public a narrative of sculptures, drawings, photos, and videos.

The retrospective exhibition, curated by Jochen Volz presents a collection of Marina Abramović’s pieces, from installation and objects to videos and documents. The show hones in on a series of works that promote the gallery as a space for possible encounters so that the exhibition’s premise becomes the relationship between artistic purposes and the public’s reception. The works shown were fundamental in Abramović’s carrier and intrinsic to the creation of the Marina Abramović Institute – MAI.​

 Antony Gormley is largely known for his large-scale pieces. In his work, he explores the human body and space; such as in the artwork Event Horizon, included in this show, where sculptures of human figures are positioned at the top of buildings and on sidewalks to modify the city’s scape. The artist uses his existence as a model, transforming the experience that much more subjective as an experience to the collective viewer. Curatorship: Marcello Dantas

Winner of the 2011 PIPA award in the categories of jury’s choice and popular vote; the piece consists of a red carpet measuring 13 meters which runs from the entrance of the chapel (Morumbi Chapel) until an enormous manual pedal loom located near the altar where the weave begins.

The show idealized by Marcello Dantas re-tells the story of the region of São João del Rei integrating historical sites with street theater. The spectacle showcases the importance of gold and mining to the area, the settling of the city and tales such as that of the freed slave Maria Viegas, who ordered that everyone who attended her burial receive payment on the form of gold. The public is guided by a court of “tropeiros”, “maracatu”, prostitutes and “congada” who all take turns to travel through the city. The stops include five churches of the town, where the actors use projections, music, dance and circus performances o narrate the regions historical saga. Each episode represents the conquest of different freedoms; from political to personal, spiritual to educational and even economic.

The exhibition honors the 200 years of the Brazilian Bank (Banco do Brasil), which was created by Dom João VI in 1808, the year where the Royal Family arrives on Brazilian soil. The show depicts a side of Portugal not widely known by Brazilians, characterized by pieces and documents from the prehistoric times until the year of the Discovery (1500). It describes the formation of the Portuguese people and their rule through a narrative of jewels, sacred and profane objects, maps, scientific tools and statuary that constitutes an invaluable collection never before seen in Brazil. ​
