MAC USP in the 21st century: The Era of Artists (group show)
MAC USP, São Paulo
20 May 2017 - ongoing

The current exhibition incorporates this attitude of working together, proposing an almost invisible curatorship while the focus remains on the artists' work. No readings or conceptual movement paths were previously defined. Works are open to free exploration and to the individual experience of visitors, who are free to find their own connections, identity and alterity relations among the array of possible conversations that can be held.

We are talking of a curatorship role that is purposely willing to let all underlying meanings intrinsic to the work of art emerge and play with one another in dynamic and incessant processes. Connections are threads that will never stop moving.
