OCTOBER

Oct 1 – New temporary exhibits

On October 1st, Inhotim opens several works in the collection. Among the novelties are the video-installations by South-African artist William Kentridge. In 2013, a traveling exhibit dedicated to the artist’s production went to Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Porto Alegre, and he is now bringing the work “I am not me, the horse is not mine” to Inhotim. The work is made up of eight enormous projections and will be installed in a 600m2 shed. The work is expected to be one of the Institute’s main attractions in 2015. It has been on display at the Tate Modern, in London, and at the MoMA, in New York, and will replace “The Murder of Crows”, by Janet Cardiff and Georges Bures Miller.

The exhibit “Do Objeto para o Mundo – Coleção Inhotim” [From the object to the world – Inhotim Collection] will be on display at Galeria Fonte, featuring works which are part of the collection but had never been shown at the park. Over 50 works from the 1950s to date are part of the collection excerpt which examines the formation of the field of contemporary art based on the collection as well as on the institution’s program, opened to the public in 2006. The exhibit has been in Belo Horizonte and São Paulo, totaling over 100 thousand visitors.

NOVEMBER

Nov 26 – Opening of Galeria Claudia Andujar

On November 26, 2015, Inhotim will open Galeria Claudia Andujar, a project which has been developed over the past five years by the Institute. The space will have 1,600m2 and will be completely dedicated to the work of the Swiss photographer who has been based in Brazil since the 1950s. Throughout the years, she has photographed the life of the Yanomami, an indigenous people living in the Amazon Rainforest, on the border between Brazil and Venezuela. Her work was essential for the demarcation of the Yanomami territory back in 1992, being closely connected to the history of Brazil. Her gallery at Inhotim will gather over 500 photos taken by the artist during the time she lived with indigenous populations, as well as during other visits she made after that period.
