Guga Szabzon – Exhibition "Tudo o que criamos passa a existir"
Sesc Ipiringa, São Paulo
Inaugurates on March 12, Tuesday, the individual exhibition “Tudo o que criamos passa a existir”, by artist Guga Szabzon at Sesc Ipiranga. This exhibition presents to the public an immense blue fabric, where we see embroidered lines, which highlight the orientations of a map. But at first it is empty. The proposal of the work is that the public build, together with the artist, the places that can exist, within the infinite aesthetic possibilities. The real and the imagined occupy space and what we create comes to exist. The process of construction of this great map will be carried out in 5 monthly meetings, when the artist occupies the unit assembling her workspace, sharing the reflections with the passing public. The “Processo aberto: construindo a obra com Guga Szabzon” will take place on 28/03, 13/04, 04/05, 15/06 and 05/07, from 14h to 20h in the area of coexistence.

Débora Bolsoni – "Lição de Mimese"
Pinacoteca, São Paulo
The Pinacoteca de São Paulo exhibits for the first time the work “Lição de Mimese” by the artist DéboraBolsoni, which was recently incorporated into the collection of the institution. Also will be exhibited works by Marcius Galan, Regina Parra and Matheus Rocha Pitta. The works will occupy four rooms adjoining the long-term exhibition on the second floor of Pina Luz. The exhibition opens to the public on Saturday, February 16, starting at 11am. Considered a crucial work in the trajectory of the artist, “Lição de Mimese” is composed of several slates cut in different formats and framed in wood, similar to mirrors. These mirrors that reflect nothing, however, can receive drawings scratched with chalk, which brings to the discussion the mimetic effect of art and its ability to duplicate reality.

Rosana Paulino – Exhibition "A Costura da Memória"
Pinacoteca Luz, São Paulo
It opens on Saturday, December 8, at 11am, the largest individual exhibition of the artist Rosana Paulino in a large institution of the country, Pinacoteca. Recognized for facing social issues that emerge from the position of black women in contemporary society, the exhibition “Rosana Paulino: A Costura da Memória”, curated by Valéria Piccoli and Pedro Nery, brings together works produced between 1993 and 2018 as Bastidores (1997 ) and Parede da Memória (1994-2015), which were decisive at the beginning of his career. These go back to her personal narrative and present themselves as a starting point for the exhibition. The first includes, as in the title, a series of embroideries with figures of women of the family printed on fabrics whose eyes, mouths and throats are sewn together, indicating the shadowing imposed on black women, often the result of domestic violence. In revolving the beginning of her personal history, Rosana Paulino observes that the problem of representation of blacks translates into their almost absence in the most varied aspects of Brazilian life and history, especially in the history of the visual arts.
