The event, which features street festivals, performances, exhibitions and workshops, opens the embassies’ doors for the public to visit the historical buildings where they are located. In total, 70 embassies will take part of the event, as well as more than forty DC-based cultural institutions.

    On May 6, the Around the World Embassy Tour will take place. From 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., more than six thousand visitors are expected. They will have the opportunity to visit the Brazilian Ambassador’s Official Residence in Washington and learn more about Inhotim, a cultural destination of international renown.

    The expansion of the Institute’s international presence is one of the outcomes of the “Inhotim: Global Change” project, carried out in partnership with the IDB since 2015, and aimed at encouraging actions related to climate change, in addition to the institutional strengthening of Inhotim.

    Exhibition at IDB headquarters in July
    During Passport DC, Inhotim will announce its upcoming initiative: the exhibit “Inhotim: At the Crossroads of Glocal Change”, which will open on July 18. For two months, the exhibition will occupy the gallery located at the IDB headquarters in Washington and present works of art from the Inhotim collection, as well as visual and sound experiences that refer to the gardens and landscapes of the Institute, providing the international public with a rare snatch of its attractions and collection highlights.

    Thematic Visit – The Neo-Concrete Movement
    The artistic and literary movement known as Neo-Concretism emerged in the late 1950s in Rio de Janeiro, opposing the Concretist Movement of the city of São Paulo. Neo-concretists criticized the excess of dogmatism and rationalism expressed by Concretism, and perceived art in a more subjective and sensitive way. Among the various artists who participated in the Neoconcretist Manifesto, Inhotim features works by Lygia Clark, Lygia Pape and Amílcar de Castro. This thematic visit reflects on the importance of this movement, considered by many as a turning point in Brazilian art for influencing a considerable number of artists.

    Inhotim opens first traveling exhibition

    Inhotim opens first traveling exhibition

    Opening on December 12, the Palácio das Artes and the Centro de Arte Contemporânea e Fotografia in Belo Horizonte are hosting the exhibition Do Objeto para o Mundo – Coleção Inhotim [From the Object to the World – The Inhotim Collection]. This traveling show marks the first time that a part of Instituto Inhotim’s collection has left the institute’s facilities in Brumadinho (MG). Featuring over 50 artworks , which date from the 1950s up to the present day, the exhibition is composed of a cross-section of the collection. and examines the field of contemporary art, in the light of the institution’s collection and programs, which first opened to the general public in 2006. Co-produced by Fundação Clóvis Salgado, the show will run until March 8, 2015, after which it will travel onward to São Paulo, opening at Itaú Cultural in April 2015. It will be free to enter at all touring venues.

    The exhibition focuses on a historical moment when art expanded beyond objects to become more open to the world. In this context, elements from daily life, from real space, from politics and the body are incorporated into art and the spectator becomes a participant. For Rodrigo Moura – Inhotim’s director of art and cultural programs, and the curator of the exhibition – this is an opportunity for audiences to get to know the institute’s collection, as most of the artworks have never been shown at the park. “They are works that point out possible paths in the history of art over the last 50 years, which have allowed Inhotim to be what it is,” he explains.

    The president of Fundação Clóvis Salgado, Fernanda Machado, draws attention to the importance of the circulation of Inhotim’s collection. “We are very happy to be displaying this rich collection for the first time. We understand that it involves a bold project that aims to offer the public a glimpse at a wide variety of previously unseen artworks. We believe that this partnership allows us to enlarge the mission of Fundação Clóvis Salgado and to further expand access to culture to our audiences.”

    An exhibition path in four segments

    In the main gallery of the Palácio das Artes, historical works are placed in dialogue with more recent ones. Organized in four segments, the exhibition path begins with the neoconcretism of Hélio Oiticica, Lygia Clark and Lygia Pape, passes through the conceptual geometry of Channa Horwitz, Cildo Meireles and David Lamelas as well as through the avant-garde works of the Gutai group, which arose in Japan during years immediately following the second World War, and ends with action art and the presence of the body in art, exemplified by the work of Chris Burden, among others and are presented in dialogue with artists such as Gabriel Sierra, Jac Leirner, Cinthia Marcelle, and others.

    The galleries on the lower level feature smaller-scale installations by Ernesto Neto, Jorge Macchi,Mauro Restiffe, Melanie Smith, Rivane Neuenschwander and Thomas Hirschhorn. At the Centro de Arte Contemporânea e Fotografia, a historical building in the city’s downtown region, the video installation Homo sapiens sapiens (2005) by Pipilotti Rist, will be shown for the first time in Brazil. Filmed at Inhotim before the park was opened to the general public, the work explores the institute’s garden and creates an immersive environment that encourages the visitor to lie back and absorb the images projected on the ceiling.

    From the Body to the Earth

    The exhibition’s title also refers to the event Do Corpo à Terra [From the Body to the Earth], which took place during the inauguration of the Palácio das Artes, in April 1970. Organized by critic Frederico Morais, today it is considered a milestone in the investigations concerning the environmental and experimentalist art of the avant-garde movement in Brazil. Two productions made on that occasion are part of the show: Ação no Parque Municipal [Action at the Municipal Park] 1970, by Décio Noviello, and Situação T/T 1 – Belo Horizonte [Situation T/T 1 – Belo Horizonte], 1970, by Artur Barrio.

    Contemporary Music at Inhotim

    Contemporary Music at Inhotim

    This coming Sunday, 10/19, the 2014 Inhotim em Cena project closes its program with the Contemporary Music Series. In this fourth edition, joined by American singer Martha Herr, the Minas Gerais group Sonante 21 will perform the play Pierrot Lunaire, one of the most influential works of music in the 20th century. The concert will also premiere a composition by Minas-born artist Rogério Vasconcelos, made especially for Inhotim.

    Written in 1912 by Arnold Schoenberg, Pierrot Lunaire comprises three sets of seven songs, based on poems by Belgian poet Albert Giraud and translated into German. The composition has an atonal and expressionistic character and uses sprechstimme, intermediate vocal technique between singing and speaking.

    Sonante 21

    Created in 2009 by musician Fernando Rocha, the Minas Gerais group is dedicated to studying and performing chamber pieces by contemporary composers, with emphasis on Brazilian compositions from the second half of the 20th century and 21st century. The following artists will take part in this performance: Guida Borghoff (piano), Rommel Fernandes (violin), Elise Pittenger (cello), Maurício Freire (flute) and Alexandre Silva (clarinet).

    Inhotim em Cena is brought to you by Pirelli, sponsored by Correios, supported by Saritur, and relies on the participation of Fundação Clóvis Salgado and Media partnership by Sou BH.
