With a full football team of 11 artists A Gentil Carioca opens the Maracanã exhibition in its old building on the 14th of June at 6pm. A team composed of poets, musicians and thinkers was selected this time rather than the more traditional formation of visual arts. The exhibition suggests more than a simple game played literally, with or for the public. The theme of the Maracanã is a thorny issue in current times and also poetic par excellence, it raises controversy and emotions. The invited artists aim to understand what the Maracanã was in the past, what it currently is and the future course of the crucial metaphors that will shape this monument: the Maracanã.
