Solo artist exhibition Maxwell Alexander. New power: passability It is part of the “Novo Poder” series and is the itinerary in São Paulo of the first Maxwell Alexandre Pavilion, which was in the São Cristóvão neighborhood, Rio de Janeiro.

Since the artist has a mostly international exhibition schedule, the Maxwell Alexandre Pavilion was announced to expand in Brazil, discussing what was being shown in galleries and museums outside the country. The intention is to generate dialogue and give a local audience access to the artist's work and its long-term development: passability. The safe and peaceful walk through the white cube. This is the concept of passability in Maxwell Alexandre's terms.

Treated for the first time within the Novo Poder series in Spain, passabilidade gains development and arrives with a more acute approach to the Pavilion, through an ambitious installation with more than 50 portraits, all painted in oil on brown paper.

Firm and aware of these spaces – museums and galleries – that were once hostile to melanated people, the characters walk elegantly, as if they were parading on a catwalk. In Novo Poder: Passabilidade, the artist makes this intersection between fashion and contemporary art, denoting both fields as platforms of empowerment, which offer dignity and self-esteem to the individual.
