Luiz Roque, 'Descriptive Geometry', 2012, video installation

MythRiot, collective at Videobrasil, until 28/7.

Based on extensive research in the Videobrasil Historical Collection, the exhibition MythRiot curated by Júlia Rebouças and seeks to reflect on the representation of national identity and the ability of art to oppose established orders.

The curatorship uses the ideas of myth and riot, articulated as a palindrome in the title of the show, to debate the modes and possibilities of insurgency in the face of scenarios of social instability and to reflect on Brazil at the present time. From a two-way reading, it is as if the idea of ​​riot in art, or through it, were challenged as a mythology, while the riot of myths is proposed, or the deconstruction of our country's ideology.

Abraham Palatnik, 'W', 2018

Abraham Palatnik: On the Move, individual at Nara Roesler in Rio de Janeiro, from 24/4

The exhibition demonstrates the full vigor of the world-renowned master of movement and light, presenting as its central work an unprecedented Kinetic Object in large dimensions (205 x 226 x 40 cm), created in 2018. The featured work symbolizes the continuity of a extensive research to which the artist dedicates himself throughout his career, becoming, after fair historical revisionism, a reference in the field of kinetic and optical art.

This exhibition by Palatnik brings together other works also from his most recent production: reliefs on acrylic, on wood, from the W series, and on cardboard, which started to receive a layer of spray paint on the surface. They are two-dimensional pieces that achieve depth and dynamism due to the composition of rhythmic patterns, through sequential cuts, which refer to waves of irregular character, formal characteristics that connect to the genealogy of Palatnik's production from the 1960s.
