Tomie Ohtake, Untitled [Untitled], 1978

The exposure Contemporary, always – Santander Brasil Collection, curated by Agnaldo Farias and Ricardo Ribenboim, it presents an overview of 70 years of Brazilian art and brings together a significant set of paintings, sculptures, drawings, engravings and photographs. Of the more than two thousand works in the collection, 64 works were chosen, divided into the categories Abstraction, Portrait and Landscape.

A work that has never been exhibited, by the artist Bené Fonteles, in the Abstraction category, is one of the expected attractions. The untitled work was created in 1980. The oldest work is the sculpture by Victor Brecheret, Guitar player (1923). And the most recent, a painting by the artist Paulo Almeida, part of the “Palimpsestos” series. The creative process of the work involves modifying it with each new exhibition. The artist will work on site and complete the changes days before it opens to the public.

The choices include several fundamental artists in this cut proposed by the curatorship: bringing together classic and contemporary figures of art in the country, surpassing the definitions of time and renewing itself with each look.
