With an exhibition of 203 works by Tarsila do Amaral, an unprecedented installation on the tragedies of Mariana and Brumadinho and a collective on the existence and intrinsic questions of being, the Marcos Amaro Art Factory (FAMA Museu e Campo) reopens its doors with new security protocols and with its renovated and restored spaces.
“The reopening has been very gratifying. We were closed for nine months and we had a lot of work to redesign and re-present the museum to the public, respecting all safety standards and protocols due to Covid-19”, says Marcos Amaro, president of the institution (read our interview with the cultural manager). The reopening follows the guidelines of the Prefecture of the Tourist Resort of Itu and the protection, health and hygiene measures established by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Brazilian Public Health bodies.
Those who visit Itu and decide to take a tour of FAMA can appreciate Tarsila – Studies and Notes, an exhibition by the modernist artist that brings together rare drawings, sketches and studies kept from public view for more than five decades (read Tadeu Chiarelli's column about the exhibition). Next door, Marcelo Moscheta occupies one of the museum's exhibition rooms with reject, shows the result of the FAMA Museum and Field award of the 15th SP-Arte (read the report), and the collective Ontologies brings together works by Amaro, Cabral and Kandro that investigate their own existence.
In addition to the exhibitions, it is possible to enjoy the outdoor areas, with the gardens and outdoor sculptures. “This is a contemplative space so that people can also enjoy a bit of nature inside the Factory”, says Amaro.
