It is the beginning of a new everything, a startover, so it is the art that rebuilds itself, cyclical, reinventing itself, throwing itself to the challenges of the day, of our time, historical, political, revolutionary challenges! New ideas and new proposals can appear, paths, questions, answers, colors, forms, meanings … poetry happens every day, every second, ATTENTION! How to get it? How to put it on paper, in the exhibition space? … hummm this name can be annoying … in the living room, in the gallery, in the street, in the world, who knows. At Gentil Carioca, we are sure that the Abre Alas is a place of dialogue open to all.
2018 has arrived, a year that will be of reflection and attitude. The times are for the attentive. The caravan of artists from all over Brazil who celebrate this Open Wings will begin to pass!
