The unprecedented photographic exhibition “Cartoonists” brings together the greatest cartoonists in Brazil portrayed by Paulo Vitale and curated by Eder Chiodetto. The exhibition, which opened to the public on April 26th, will run until September 29th, 2024, from Wednesday to Friday, from 14pm to 19pm; Saturday and Sunday, from 10am to 19pm, with free visits.

The exhibition is a project composed of portraits of 120 designers in the field of graphic humor, portrayed by photographer Paulo Vitale in which each photo can be considered a cartoon, reflecting characteristics and style of those portrayed. This is the only way to translate into portraits the humor that these designers produce in people's brains with political, social themes and human existence itself. Among those portrayed are Mauricio de Sousa; Ziraldo; Paulo Caruso; Jaguar; Angeli; Laertes; between others.

When looking at the essay as a whole, Eder Chiodetto's curatorship adopted the path of considering the proposed exhibition space so that it could receive all the portraits created by the photographer. As the vast majority of cartoonists looked directly into the photographer's lens, now in the exhibition the photographer disappears and each subject will be looking into the eyes of each spectator, creating a more emphatic connection between the public and cartoonists.
