The Art of Jequitinhonha - 2005/2006

The works selected for in this exhibition were a small sample of the work produced in communities in the Jequitinhonha Valley in Minas Gerais. The diversity of work produced today in the region allows us to understand artistic production as a result of a close relationship between the collective and traditional knowledge - expressed by the mastery of ceramic techniques, ways of creating, learning and teaching - and the subjectivity of each artist.

Art and Everyday Life - 2004

The works selected for this exhibition reflect on the poetry present in everyday life, often made of small gestures and repetitive tasks, to which we do not always pay sufficient attention. The set of works addressed a daily life reconciled with time, and that does not seem to mind the lack of time. A routine in which their activities and the daily struggle for survival occupy the center stage and sometimes appear intertwined with other dimensions of life - parties, games, love, religion and death.

Masters of Brazilian Folk Art - 2003

The curatorial proposal this show was inspired by the work and life stories of some folk artists. Although, for the most part, folk artists live (or lived) in different regions of Brazil and under different living conditions, their stories have much in common: most began an apprenticeship in the arts early in life and almost all have profound knowledge the techniques they use.

Meeting times - Parties, plays and rural life

The show paid tribute to the meetings, through sculptures that speak of a daily reconciled with the time and that seems to leave aside the complaints about failing. A routine that draws inspiration from the small farms, with the joy of their mirth, but do not forget urban life, with games in the streets, dancing couples and parties big.
