Leon Ferrari, to human rights
Sculptures to hear, collective exhibition at MuBE (Brazilian Museum of Sculpture and Ecology), opening on 3/3.
In “Esculturas para Ouvir”, curator Cauê Alves seeks, from the point of view of private contemporary art collections, to discover how these pieces are seen today within the field of visual arts. And the absence of works belonging to museums in this show is intentional, because the question that we are trying to investigate is: are sound sculptures already widely accepted as works of art by collectors, the market and the public? León Ferrari, Amelia Toledo and Paulo Bruscky are some of the artists that are part of the exhibition.

Hilma af Klint: Possible Worlds, solo show at the Pinacoteca de São Paulo, opening on 3/3
The exhibition includes 130 works. Highlight for the series entitled “the top ten”, created in 1907 and considered today one of the first and greatest works of abstract art in the western world, as it predates the non-figurative compositions of contemporary af Klint artists such as Kandinsky, Mondrian and Malevich. In addition to this set, the exhibition in São Paulo will feature a series of works that have never been presented to the public. The Pinacoteca exhibition is curated by Jochen Volz, the institution’s general director, in partnership with Daniel Birnbaum, director of the Moderna Museet., and is a collaboration with the Hilma af Klint Foundation.

Daniel ArshamZAZEN e Amanda Mei: Reform, solo exhibitions at Galeria Baró, openings in 3/3.
In the works that make up the exhibition ZAZEN, Daniel Arsham proposes to the spectator the experience of a time that is not concrete – despite the materiality of the objects of his sculptures and installations.

Mary Andrade e Diogo de Moraes, solo exhibitions at Galeria Virgílio, openings in 7/3.
Bus diary: school visits to artistic institutions conceives mediation as a documentary practice with an artistic bias. Its elaboration involves infiltration in buses that take students from the public education network to art institutions in the city of São Paulo, on the occasion of scheduled visits promoted by their educational departments. Maria Andrade's individual, in the words of Rodrigo Bivar, he has paintings that “are based on photographs, or are reconstructions made by memory. Although they are landscape paintings, the artist's use of color is not intended – except for one piece – to be naturalistic”.
Francisco Valdes, Spillage II 2015
Francisco Valdés: Scandinavian Ghost, solo show at Adelina Galeria, until 31/3.
The show features paintings created especially for this exhibition in São Paulo. For Mario Gioia, who signs the critical text, “Valdés goes through experiments that we can evaluate as expanded painting, in which other media – drawing, three-dimensional, photography, cinema and performance, among others – are amalgamated and, disguised as new meanings, discuss and renew typical attributes of the originally investigated support.”
