The photographer Luiz Baltar presents its latest work: the exhibition “River of Cities”. The exhibition, curated by Marcia Mello, is on display at Sesc Nova Iguaçu Gallery. Awarded by the Sesc RJ Pulsar Culture Notice, in the Visual Arts category, the project explores the complexities of Rio de Janeiro through the lenses of Luiz Baltar.

The photographic exhibition, which is open to the public free of charge, will be on display until June 2nd. Developed with a careful selection of works, the exhibition proposes an intimate dialogue between idealization and reality. Through his digital collages, Baltar portrays urban tensions and conflicts, challenges artistic conventions and invites visitors to explore new perspectives on urban life.

“It is a personal achievement to be able to share these works with the Sesc audience and, at the same time, contribute to a rapprochement between art and documentary photography, which has a lot to contribute to dialogue and reflection on inequalities in our society”, he states Baltar.

Composed of the authorial series “Anomia” and “Fluxos”, the solo exhibition conveys a feeling of dismay in the face of social disparities, based on a critical and provocative view of the city. With this, it offers new postcards to Rio residents. By combining art and social reflection, the visual artist invites the public to question the idealization of the city and to see Rio de Janeiro in its complexity and diversity.

“Luiz Baltar makes his art a movement in which thinking and feeling are integrated into the look, displacing our senses and our experiences. It proposes a new way of looking at the city to understand it in its alteritarian dimension, where each human existence is unique and singular at the same time as it is plural and collective”, highlights Marcia Mello.
