This is the first time that MAR has held an exhibition outside its base in Praça Mauá, as well as being one of the richest curatorial partnerships that we have developed to date. The project arose because of a desire to think collectively, born from a prospective vision on the complexity of the history of the Quitandinha Palace, where today stands the Petropolis branch of Sesc.
Inside is the first exhibition in the Room of Encounters. It was designed as a plural set which brings together, juxtaposes and integrates in a vast poetic field, works that provide approaches that go beyond mere contemplation, inviting the public to reflect on and dive into the complex universe of art.
In The Name of Fear | Rio de Janeiro, Rivane Neuenschwander operates in the interstices of words and images and provides her poetic instruments to plunge into the other’s history and experience – children gathered in workshops at Museu de Arte do Rio and at Escola de Artes Visuais.
