    A Greener Brumadinho

    A Greener Brumadinho

    During the month of June, a group of 15 gardeners from Inhotim worked with a special proposal: to make the city of Brumadinho greener. Through a partnership with the City Administration, the Institute donated to the city a landscape project signed by Pedro Nehring, responsible for the park’s gardens. All the material needed to carry out the project was also donated.

    That includes over 500 plants, such as palm trees, orchids, salvias and agaves which now embellish flower beds and squares in the city. The species chosen are part of Inhotim’s collection and adapt well to the urban environment, and that is why Nehring has chosen them. “I have been visiting Brumadinho since the early 1980s, when I started building the gardens that are part of Inhotim today. I’m proud to be responsible to take the park’s beauty to the streets of Brumadinho”, says the landscaper.

    City residents saw the changes from a close range and approved the new spaces. “I think everything turned up really nice. Brumadinho needed this change and I believe this is the beginning of an even bigger change”, says Lucas Amorim, owner of a small business downtown. The intervention was only one of the phases of the project. Later this year, Inhotim will work on new gardens in the city, continuing the partnership.

    Foreign invasion at Inhotim

    Foreign invasion at Inhotim

    Since the World Cup started in Brazil, Inhotim has received a huge amount of foreigners eager to take home good memories of their trip. The faces and accents from all over the world are ready to open a smile and proudly shout the name of their countries of origin. That doesn´t mean receiving international visitors is something new for the Institute. Actually, about 20% of those visiting the park come from other countries and, during the two first weeks of the competition, this average has increased to 60%.

    “I am an art teacher in Belgium and I first heard of Inhotim in a documentary aired in the largest TV station in my country. Then, since I am in Brazil because of the World Cup, I took the opportunity to visit this wonder!”, tells Koen Verhaeghe, while observing the 4-meter sculpture by Brazilian artist Cildo Meireles. Named Inmensa (1982-2002), the work was included in the panoramic tour conducted in English, which the Belgium took part in and that was created especially for this flow of tourists brought by the World Cup.

    From Argentine hermanos to Pakistanis and Israelis – whose teams, by the way, aren’t even playing the Cup – the Institute has already received visitors from more than 20 different nations. Americans Lisa Christiansen and Ryan Samuelson found out about the park in a search they make back home nine months ago, before arriving in South America. “When I saw pictures of Inhotim on the Internet, I knew I had to visit this place”, she says.

    Prawn-stuffed Sole

    Prawn-stuffed Sole

    Learn how to prepare this delicious dish served at Tamboril, one of Inhotim’s restaurants that offers a diversified international menu.

     

    Ingredients

    2 kg (4 lb.) of sole fillet

    1 kg (2 lb.) of pink prawns

    2 spoons of butter

    1 leek cut into slices

    2 grated onions

    Extra virgin olive oil

    Lime and salt to taste

    How to prepare

    Season the sole fillet and the prawns with salt and lime and set aside. Squeeze the grated onions using a sieve to remove all the water, which should be diluted in melted butter. Pass this mix onto the sole. Then, make a medallion with each fillet, stuffing each one with two prawns.

    Place the medallions in an ovenproof dish and pour the rest of the onion-water and butter mix on top. Put it into the oven preheated to medium temperature for 30 minutes, cover with foil. Then, remove the foil and let it brown for 10 more minutes. The sauce should not dry up.

    In a separate pot, sauté the leek in olive oil and put it over the roasted medallions. Serve with rice with garlic and arugula salad.

    Makes 6 servings

    The “science of quick fixing” on display

    The “science of quick fixing” on display

    Starting this week until August 17, Oi Futuro in Belo Horizonte will receive the exhibit Gambiólogos 2.0 [Quick Fixers 2.0] a new version of the exhibit previously shown at Espaço Centoequatro in 2010, about the Science of Quick Fixing. For those who are not familiar with it, the term “science of quick fixing” defines the study of the Brazilian tradition of improvising and finding creative solutions to small everyday problems, as well as the application of these ideas to art and design.

    The discussions in new exhibit, with about 40 works, is guided by three themes:improvisation in electronic art and the inclusion of low technology as a formal option; the idea of “collectionism” through accumulation or how artists have used modern world’s excess waste as a resource; and the influence of popular culture and handcraft in the world of plastic arts.

    Artists whose works are present in Inhotim’s collection are among the names in the exhibit, such as Bahia-born artist Marepe, Spanish artist Sara Ramo and Minas Gerais-born artist Ganso, who is responsible for one of the most charming spaces at Inhotim, which is named after him. Bar do Ganso was fashioned around 1950s French bistros and gathers furniture by Brazilian designers such as Sérgio Rodrigues and Zanini, items found in thrift shops and antique stores, in addition to lamps and tables designed by the artist himself, especially for the Institute.

    Inhotim opens store in Belo Horizonte

    As of today, the Savassi neighborhood in Belo Horizonte is even more charming with the opening of Inhotim’s first concept-store. The space, named Inhotim Box, was conceived to be a gateway to the park in the capital city of Minas Gerais and offers several items that translate the identity of the Institute. “Our idea is to bring Inhotim even closer and expand the experience of visiting the Institute to products that carry our DNA”, explains Cristiana Paz, manager of Inhotim stores.

    In the new store, you will find publications about our collections, seedlings of plants found in our gardens, posters, in addition to Inhotim’s entire institutional line, including souvenirs such as pencils and notebooks, clothes and accessories. In synch with the actions carried out by the Institute, the items prioritize recyclable materials and have a sustainable appeal. For instance, PET bottles are part of the composition of the canvas used to make our bags, and the T-shirts are made of ecofriendly fabric.

    Inhotim ceramics, handmade in the park since 2010, also have a new look. The name now is Cerâmica Oti and the company identity has been restructured. The items are now organized in collections, with innovative shapes and colors, and during the store’s grand opening, it will be possible to see a preview. Also new is the line of jewelry especially created for Inhotim by designer Lúcia Lou.
