Plans for the future and the celebration of the fiftieth anniversary

On November 11 of this year, the workshop-museum created by plastic artist Francisco Brennand – by transforming his father's old factory, Ricardo, into his studio – will be 50 years old. Stimulated by the celebration, the institution has been structuring a project to transform the place into an international artistic reference, along the lines of Inhotim, in Brumadinho (Minas Gerais). In fact, to this end, the former artistic director of the mining space, Júlia Rebouças, assumes the position at Oficina Brennand. In addition to her, Lucas Pessôa was named general director of the institute, having previously held the post of director of operations at MASP, where he helped the museum escape possible bankruptcy. Joining the two of them, in the new stage of the Brennand Workshop, there is also a group of counselors with national activities: the anthropologist Lilia Schwarcz; patroness Frances Reynolds; Keyna Eleison, artistic director of MAM-RJ and Tiago Pessoa, from the Morgan Stanley group.

Due to the fiftieth anniversary, for the end of the year, the workshop is preparing a celebratory exhibition that will bring together XNUMX works by Francisco Brennand in an unprecedented reinterpretation. Following this retrospective, the institute also organizes the arrival of works by the artist that are in the collection of private collectors or that are part of museum sets. Incorporated into the workshop's half-century celebration is the inauguration of maracanarvera, installation by Rio de Janeiro artist Ernesto Neto. Due to its interactive nature, however, there is a possibility that the exhibition of the work will be relocated to 2022. Finally, Spider, by Louise Bourgeois, should also be exhibited in the institute's gardens, on loan from Itaú Cultural.
