In a new action that starts this Thursday, June 25, virtual online visits to the exhibitions of the Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil (CCBB) are added to the program #CCBBEducativoEmCasa, which has been bringing content produced by artists and art educators to the whole family, especially children, in their homes.
On the CCBB website it is possible to access contents such as Comic books, the lessons in pounds and the activities of the Place of Creation, which usually takes place on weekends at the headquarters of the Cultural Center and, like the rest of the program, also went to the web. On the website it is also possible to check the heritage visits through the buildings of the four centers. There are two heritage visits per headquarters, the first of which are already on the air and the others are scheduled for the coming weeks.
The novelty now is the mediated visits, an opportunity for those who were unable to go – before the beginning of social distancing – or for those who want to see the exhibitions again, which are still on display at the four CCBB units, but with suspended in-person access.
In Belo Horizonte, shuttle presents more than 300 works that represent hammocks in Brazilian culture and art. Through works produced by indigenous and non-indigenous artists - from the XNUMXth century to the present day -, the exhibition brings reflections on Brazilian identities based on this cultural symbol, a fruit of the Amerindian tradition that has been preserved in our ways and customs.
Japanese multidisciplinary artist Chiharu Shiota presents around 70 works in the exhibition Life Lines, at CCBB Brasilia. The show is divided into five sections and brings together works dating from the beginning of Shiota's career to some unpublished installations. His work is known to be carried out in specific contexts and on a large scale, often composed of tangles of lines.
There will also be a guided tour of the exhibition Ivan Serpa – The Expression of Concrete, on display at CCBB Rio de Janeiro. In the show, it is possible to discover a large part of the artist's repertoire of experimentation, who did not limit himself to a single language or make art by exploring a set of traditional materials. There are paintings, collages, drawings, objects and engravings different from each other.
Lastly, Ancient Egypt – From Everyday to Eternity, exhibition at CCBB São Paulo, travels through the history of Ancient Egypt through 140 pieces from the Egyptian Museum in Turin. The museum's collection is considered the second largest in the world in Egyptian art. In addition to sculptures, paintings, and everyday objects, ostracons (fragments of ceramic or stone used to write official messages), sarcophagi and mummies (human and animal) are also on display. The exhibition is divided into three sections – life, religion and eternity – that illustrate the daily lives of the people of the Nile Valley, reveal characteristics of Egyptian polytheism and address their funerary practices.
