Galeria Jaqueline Martins is pround to present our two upcoming exhibitions, opening February 3 at 2pm.
Maria Noujaim: Recomeços: quatro inícios—curated by Germano Dushá
From a body of work that originates in the creation of movements that straddle the line between sculpture and language, as well as investigations of form and poetry, Maria Noujaim (Rio de Janeiro, 1986) will present at her first solo show in our gallery four brand new movements/performances and their symbolic equivalents—created by applying vinyl onto the walls, in a process of spatialization of body language.
especular—group show, curated by Hena Lee and Mirtes Marins de Oliveira
The group show is the result of dialogical processes between curators Hena Lee and Mirtes Marins de Oliveira, seeking to approach conceptual and formal relations between historical and contemporary performance artists or practices that activate performative notions. The title of the exhibition comes from Letícia Parente’s work, Especular (1978), as a narrative introduction to dialogues between artists whose works explore ideas of reification, mirroring of images and actions, and the relationship with the other. Inside this context, the exhibition presents itself as a set of questions provoked by the artists 3Nós3 (group), Ana Mazzei, Charbel-joseph H. Boutros, Geumhyung Jeong, Gustavo Torrezan, Hudinilson Jr, Letícia Parente, Linda Montano, Rafael França and Ricardo Basbaum.
