    Inhotim will unveil four new projects by major contemporary artists in September

    Inhotim will unveil four new projects by major contemporary artists in September

    New shows will spotlight works by David Lamelas, Paul Pfeiffer, Robert Irwin and Yayoi Kusama, as well as audiovisual works by eight other artists

    An international touchstone for its permanent installations of important works of contemporary art by leading artists, Instituto Inhotim will open a new temporary exhibition on 6 September.

    Four large projects by artists David Lamelas, Paul Pfeiffer, Robert Irwin and Yayoi Kusama — along with an exhibition dedicated to audiovisual works — will occupy the three temporary galleries “Lago”, “Praça” and “Fonte”. A large number of works that have never been seen in Brazil before will go on show for the first time in this presentation, which is focused on perception and time, and on different forms of audiovisual production both in Brazil and beyond. On the opening day, the Argentine artist David Lamelas will do the performance Time. The public will also be able to see Stallwitter (Stable Storm), performed jointly by Brazilian artist Marcellvs L. and German artist Daniel Löwenbrück.

    “Our aim is to establish a dialogue among works by renowned artists of various nationalities and generations, introducing visitors to names that are still little-shown in Brazil,” says Inhotim’s curator and artistic director Allan Schwartzman. “Internationally important artists who have significantly influenced the history of art — such as Robert Irwin — give rise to new perceptions on space, for example. This exhibition is an excellent opportunity for presenting other works from the collection and to re-create connections with the works for which Inhotim is already known.”

    For two artists, Robert Irwin and Yayoi Kusama, this exhibition is a prelude to important large-scale projects that will be unveiled over the next few years at Inhotim. The institute is planning the open-air installation of a large-scale sculpture that Irwin has designed specially for Inhotim. Meanwhile, the construction of a permanent gallery dedicated to Kusama, sponsored by the Companhia Brasileira de Metalurgia e Mineração (CBMM), is in development.

    GALERIA LAGO 

    Galeria Lago will feature the exhibition “Lamelas, Irwin, Kusama: Regarding Perception”, which brings together works by three great names in the history of contemporary art. Visitors will be able to view historical works by David Lamelas; Black³, 2008, by North American artist Robert Irwin—being shown here for the first time in Brazil; and the installation I’m Here, But Nothing, 2000, by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama.

    “The show has historical breadth and covers interesting territory insofar as it brings together artists from different nationalities who began their careers in the same period, during the 1950s and 1960s,” says Inhotim’s adjunct artistic director María Eugenia Salcedo. “There is a generational dialogue among them; all three artists research new forms of artistic production that appropriate less standard material — such as light, architecture, everyday objects and the body itself. Their focus is not on the object, but rather on perception, sensations and the ways in which sculptural elements alter our experience with space and with works of art.”

    David Lamelas (Argentina, 1946) will be showing the works Corner Piece, 1966/2018, Límite de una Proyección I, 1967Proyección, 1968, Situación de Cuatro Placas de Aluminio, 1966, and Untitled (Falling Wall)1993/2018The artist achieved international visibility in 1967 with his participation, at the age of 21, in the 9th Bienal de São Paulo and, in the following year, at the 36th Biennale di Venezia. For more than four decades, his works have dealt with themes including time, light, space, architecture and the dematerialization of objects. The artistic context of each place where he has lived — London, Paris, Los Angeles and New York — is essential for his production.

    Robert Irwin (USA, 1928) will be presenting Black³, 2008. A pioneer of the Light and Space movement, Irwin began his career in art as a painter in the 1950s. Since then, he has explored perception as a fundamental question of art. The artist has conceived more than 55 site-conditional projects, including the Central Gardens for Getty Center, Los Angeles, 1992–98, and the architectural design and external area of Dia:Beacon, New York, 1999–2003.

    Yayoi Kusama (Japan, 1929), already permanently installed at Inhotim with Narcissus Garden, 2009, will now also have the work I’m Here, But Nothing, 2000, shown at the institute. One of the most important artists to have emerged in Asia during the postwar period, Kusama has established a relationship with movements such as Surrealism, Minimalism, Pop art and Feminism. Her work refers to hallucinations that the artist has experienced since childhood and which she transposes to paintings, sculptures, drawings, collages, performances, installations, films, literature, fashion and design.

     

    GALERIA PRAÇA 

    The exhibition “Paul Pfeiffer, Vitruvian Experiments” will occupy one of the wings of Galeria Praça with two works by the American artist: sculpture Vitruvian Figure, 2008, and the video Empire, 2004. Born in Hawaii, with strong cultural links with the Philippines, Pfeiffer visited Inhotim last year to work together with the institute’s staff to plan the installation of his works.

    Inspired by the Olympic Stadium of Sydney, Vitruvian Figure is a large-scale sculpture of almost three meters high, and with one million seats (the real capacity of the arena is 80,000 spectators). Empire presents an anthropomorphic narrative about the activity of the construction of a wasp nest, inspired by the artwork with the same title by Andy Warhol.

    “In bringing together these two works, Pfeiffer evokes both the lack of life and movement in Vitruvian Figure and the power of life and creation in Empire,” says Fernanda Arruda, Inhotim’s adjunct curator. “Empire presents us with a structure — an architectural element that fits the need of the wasp — while Vitruvian Figure represents the fulfillment of the consumer’s needs. The nest is essential to the wasp while the stadium is not essential to sport. Vitruvian Figure makes a spectacle of us while reclaiming public space; Empire makes us complicit in the nest-building process, which is about procreation and the continuation of life.”

    Pfeiffer became known for his digital manipulations of images of athletes and celebrities, which the artist uses to explore the common tensions of contemporary culture, shedding light on their racial, religious and technological dimensions. His works connect contemporary culture with the history of art, politics, religion and media and has been exhibited and collected by important institutions including the Whitney Museum of American Art of New York, Hammer Museum, in Los Angeles, the Contemporary Museum, in Honolulu, and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Chicago.

     

    GALERIA FONTE 

    Located in one of the most visited areas of Inhotim, Galeria Fonte will feature the exhibition “To See Time Go By”, dedicated to audiovisual works of art. Along an immersive path, the exhibition invites the visitor to explore new possibilities of the image. Large audiovisual projects, part of Inhotim’s collection, are being shown for the first time in Brazil.

    The works on show include video, slide projection with audio, 3-D projection in real time and a video wall. “The exhibition reinforces the audiovisual vocation of Inhotim, whose collection includes audiovisual works by great artists such as William Kentridge, Steve McQueen and Anri Sala, as well as important sound works by artists Doug Aitken and Janet Cardiff,” says assistant curator Cecília Rocha.

    The public will be able to get to know works such as the virtual sculpture Oil Stick Work (Angelo Martínez / Richfield, Kansas), 2008, by artist John Gerrard (Ireland, 1974); a slide projection with audio Have You Ever Seen the Snow?, 2010, by Mario García Torres (Mexico, 1975), and the video I See a Woman Crying (Weeping Woman), 2009, by Rineke Dijsktra (Holland, 1959); all of which have not been previously shown at Inhotim. The show will also feature works by Jorge Macchi (Argentina, 1963), Marcellvs L. (Belo Horizonte, 1980)Peter Coffin (USA, 1972), Phil Collins (England, 1970) and Susan Hiller (USA, 1940).

    Inhotim inaugura em setembro obras de renomados artistas contemporâneos

    Inhotim inaugura em setembro obras de renomados artistas contemporâneos

    Novas exposições destacam trabalhos de David Lamelas, Paul Pfeiffer, Robert Irwin e Yayoi Kusama, além de projetos audiovisuais de mais oito artistas

    Referência no mundo por exibir permanentemente obras de importantes artistas de arte contemporânea, o Instituto Inhotim vai inaugurar novas exposições temporárias no dia 6 de setembro. Quatro relevantes projetos dos artistas David Lamelas, Paul Pfeiffer, Robert Irwin e Yayoi Kusama – além de uma mostra dedicada a obras audiovisuais – ocuparão as galerias Lago, Praça e Fonte. Um grande número de obras inéditas no Brasil será exibido nas mostras, com foco na percepção, no tempo e também em diferentes formas de produção audiovisual, tanto nacional quanto internacional. No dia da abertura, o artista argentino David Lamelas realizará a performance Time (Tempo). O público poderá assistir ainda à performance Stallwitter (Tempestade de Estábulo), realizada conjuntamente pelo artista brasileiro Marcellvs L. e pelo alemão Daniel Löwenbrück.

    “O nosso objetivo é colocar em diálogo trabalhos de artistas consagrados e das mais variadas nacionalidades e gerações, apresentando para os visitantes nomes ainda pouco exibidos no Brasil”, explica o curador e diretor artístico do Inhotim, Allan Schwartzman. “Artistas de importância internacional que influenciaram significativamente a história da arte – como Robert Irwin – provocam novas percepções sobre o espaço, por exemplo. As exposições são uma ótima oportunidade para apresentar outras obras do acervo e recriar conexões com trabalhos pelos quais o Inhotim já é conhecido.”

     Para os artistas Robert Irwin e Yayoi Kusama, as novas mostras são um prelúdio para relevantes projetos que serão inaugurados nos próximos anos no Inhotim. O Instituto planeja a instalação ao ar livre de uma escultura de grande dimensão projetada por Irwin especialmente para o Inhotim. Enquanto isso, está em fase de desenvolvimento a construção de uma galeria permanente dedicada a Kusama, com patrocínio da Companhia Brasileira de Metalurgia e Mineração (CBMM).

    GALERIA LAGO

    A Galeria Lago apresenta a exposição “Lamelas, Irwin, Kusama: Sobre a Percepção”, que reúne trabalhos de três nomes de peso da história da arte contemporânea. Os visitantes poderão conhecer obras históricas do artista argentino David Lamelas; Black³, 2008, do norte-americano Robert Irwin, inédita no Brasil; e a instalação I’m Here, But Nothing, 2000, da japonesa Yayoi Kusama.

    “A mostra tem uma abrangência histórica e adentra um território interessante na medida em que reúne artistas de diferentes nacionalidades que iniciaram suas carreiras no mesmo período, entre as décadas de 1950 e 1960”, complementa a diretora artística adjunta do Inhotim, María Eugenia Salcedo. “Existe um diálogo geracional entre eles; todos os três pesquisam uma nova forma de produção artística que se apropria de materiais não canônicos, como a luz, a arquitetura, os objetos cotidianos e o próprio corpo. O foco não é o objeto, mas a percepção, as sensações e a forma como elementos escultóricos, por exemplo, alteram a nossa experiência com o espaço e com a obra de arte.”

    David Lamelas (Argentina, 1946) assina, na Galeria Lago, as obras Corner Piece, 1966/2018, Límite de una Proyección I, 1967, Proyección, 1968, Situación de Cuatro Placas de Aluminio, 1966, e Untitled (Falling Wall), 1993/2018. O artista alcançou visibilidade internacional ainda em 1967, com a sua participação, aos 21 anos, na 9ª Bienal de São Paulo e, no ano seguinte, na 36ª Bienal de Veneza. Por mais de quatro décadas, suas obras trabalham temáticas como tempo, luz, espaço, arquitetura e desmaterialização dos objetos. O contexto artístico de cada lugar onde viveu  Londres, Paris, Los Angeles, Nova York, entre outros – é essencial para a sua produção.

    Robert Irwin (EUA, 1928), por sua vez, integra a nova exposição com a obra Black³, 2008. Pioneiro do movimento “Luz e Espaço”, Irwin iniciou sua carreira de artista como pintor na década de 1950. Desde então, tem explorado a percepção como uma questão fundamental da arte. O artista concebeu mais de 55 projetos site-conditional (condicionados ao local), incluindo os Central Gardens para o Getty Center, Los Angeles, 1992-98, e o desenho arquitetônico e a área externa do Dia:Beacon, Nova York, 1999-2003.

    Yayoi Kusama (Japão, 1929), já presente no acervo do Instituto com a obra Narcissus Garden Inhotim, 2009, exibe agora o trabalho I’m Here, But Nothing, 2000. Uma das artistas mais importantes que despontou na Ásia no período pós-guerra, Kusama estabelece relação com movimentos como surrealismo, minimalismo, pop arte e feminismo. Sua obra remete às alucinações que a artista vivencia desde a infância e que ela transpõe para pinturas, esculturas, desenhos, colagens, performances, instalações, filmes, literatura, moda e design.

    GALERIA PRAÇA

    A exposição “Paul Pfeiffer, Ensaios Vitruvianos” ocupa uma das alas da Galeria Praça com duas obras do artista americano: Vitruvian Figure, 2008, e o vídeo Empire, 2004. Nascido no Havaí e com fortes ligações culturais com as Filipinas, Pfeiffer visitou o Inhotim no ano passado para planejar, juntamente com a equipe do Instituto, a instalação de seus trabalhos.

    Inspirada no Estádio Olímpico de Sidney, Vitruvian Figure é uma escultura de grande escala, de cerca de três metros de altura, e com 1 milhão de assentos – a capacidade real da arena é de 80 mil espectadores. Já a obra Empire apresenta uma narrativa antropomórfica sobre a construção de um ninho, inspirada no trabalho homônimo do cineasta e pintor Andy Warhol.

    “Ao reunir essas duas obras, Pfeiffer evoca tanto a ausência de vida e movimento na obra Vitruvian Figure como o poder da vida e da criação no vídeo Empire”, afirma Fernanda Arruda, curadora adjunta do Inhotim. “Empire nos apresenta uma estrutura – um elemento arquitetônico que atende à necessidade da vespa –, enquanto Vitruvian Figure representa a satisfação das necessidades do consumidor. O ninho é essencial para a vespa, enquanto o estádio não é essencial para o esporte. Vitruvian Figure espetaculariza os sujeitos enquanto reivindica o espaço público; Empire nos faz cúmplices do processo de construção do ninho, que é sobre procriação e continuação da vida”.

    Paul Pfeiffer (EUA, 1966) se tornou conhecido por suas manipulações digitais de imagens de atletas e celebridades, que o artista usa para explorar as tensões comuns da cultura contemporânea, colocando em evidência as suas dimensões raciais, religiosas e tecnológicas. Seus trabalhos conectam a cultura contemporânea à história da arte, política, religião e mídia, e já foram exibidos em importantes instituições, como The Whitney Museum of American Art, de Nova York, o Hammer Museum, em Los Angeles, o Contemporary Museum, em Honolulu, e o Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Chicago.

    GALERIA FONTE

    Localizada em uma das áreas mais visitadas do Inhotim, a Galeria Fonte exibe a mostra “Para Ver o Tempo Passar”, dedicada a obras audiovisuais. Em um percurso imersivo, a exposição convida o visitante a explorar novas possibilidades da imagem. Grandes projetos audiovisuais que fazem parte do acervo do Inhotim serão expostos pela primeira vez no Brasil.

    Os trabalhos incluem vídeo, projeção de slide com áudio, projeção 3D em tempo real e video wall (parede de vídeos). “A exposição reforça a vocação audiovisual do Inhotim, que tem em sua coleção trabalhos audiovisuais de grandes artistas, como William Kentridge, Steve McQueen e Anri Sala, além de importantes obras sonoras, como as dos artistas Doug Aitken e Janet Cardiff”, pontua a curadora assistente Cecília Rocha.

    O público poderá conhecer obras como a escultura virtual Oil Stick Work (Angelo Martínez / Richfield, Kansas), 2008, do artista John Gerrard (Irlanda, 1974); a projeção de slides com áudio Have You Ever Seen the Snow?, 2010, de Mario García Torres (México, 1975), e o vídeo I See a Woman Crying (Weeping Woman), 2009, de Rineke Dijsktra (Holanda, 1959), os quais não foram mostrados anteriormente no Inhotim. Também estarão em exposição obras de Jorge Macchi (Argentina, 1963), Marcellvs L. (Belo Horizonte, 1980), Peter Coffin (EUA, 1972), Phil Collins (Inglaterra, 1970) e Susan Hiller (Estados Unidos, 1940).

    Inhotim will unveil four new projects by major contemporary artists in September

     New shows will spotlight works by David Lamelas, Paul Pfeiffer, Robert Irwin and Yayoi Kusama, as well as audiovisual works by eight other artists

    An international touchstone for its permanent installations of important works of contemporary art by leading artists, Instituto Inhotim will open a new temporary exhibition on 6 September.

    Four large projects by artists David Lamelas, Paul Pfeiffer, Robert Irwin and Yayoi Kusama — along with an exhibition dedicated to audiovisual works — will occupy the three temporary galleries “Lago”, “Praça” and “Fonte”. A large number of works that have never been seen in Brazil before will go on show for the first time in this presentation, which is focused on perception and time, and on different forms of audiovisual production both in Brazil and beyond. On the opening day, the Argentine artist David Lamelas will do the performance Time. The public will also be able to see Stallwitter (Stable Storm), performed jointly by Brazilian artist Marcellvs L. and German artist Daniel Löwenbrück.

    “Our aim is to establish a dialogue among works by renowned artists of various nationalities and generations, introducing visitors to names that are still little-shown in Brazil,” says Inhotim’s curator and artistic director Allan Schwartzman. “Internationally important artists who have significantly influenced the history of art — such as Robert Irwin — give rise to new perceptions on space, for example. This exhibition is an excellent opportunity for presenting other works from the collection and to re-create connections with the works for which Inhotim is already known.”

    For two artists, Robert Irwin and Yayoi Kusama, this exhibition is a prelude to important large-scale projects that will be unveiled over the next few years at Inhotim. The institute is planning the open-air installation of a large-scale sculpture that Irwin has designed specially for Inhotim. Meanwhile, the construction of a permanent gallery dedicated to Kusama, sponsored by the Companhia Brasileira de Metalurgia e Mineração (CBMM), is in development.

    GALERIA LAGO 

    Galeria Lago will feature the exhibition “Lamelas, Irwin, Kusama: Regarding Perception”, which brings together works by three great names in the history of contemporary art. Visitors will be able to view historical works by David Lamelas; Black³, 2008, by North American artist Robert Irwin—being shown here for the first time in Brazil; and the installation I’m Here, But Nothing, 2000, by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama.

    “The show has historical breadth and covers interesting territory insofar as it brings together artists from different nationalities who began their careers in the same period, during the 1950s and 1960s,” says Inhotim’s adjunct artistic director María Eugenia Salcedo. “There is a generational dialogue among them; all three artists research new forms of artistic production that appropriate less standard material — such as light, architecture, everyday objects and the body itself. Their focus is not on the object, but rather on perception, sensations and the ways in which sculptural elements alter our experience with space and with works of art.”

    David Lamelas (Argentina, 1946) will be showing the works Corner Piece, 1966/2018, Límite de una Proyección I, 1967Proyección, 1968, Situación de Cuatro Placas de Aluminio, 1966, and Untitled (Falling Wall)1993/2018The artist achieved international visibility in 1967 with his participation, at the age of 21, in the 9th Bienal de São Paulo and, in the following year, at the 36th Biennale di Venezia. For more than four decades, his works have dealt with themes including time, light, space, architecture and the dematerialization of objects. The artistic context of each place where he has lived — London, Paris, Los Angeles and New York — is essential for his production.

    Robert Irwin (USA, 1928) will be presenting Black³, 2008. A pioneer of the Light and Space movement, Irwin began his career in art as a painter in the 1950s. Since then, he has explored perception as a fundamental question of art. The artist has conceived more than 55 site-conditional projects, including the Central Gardens for Getty Center, Los Angeles, 1992–98, and the architectural design and external area of Dia:Beacon, New York, 1999–2003.

    Yayoi Kusama (Japan, 1929), already permanently installed at Inhotim with Narcissus Garden, 2009, will now also have the work I’m Here, But Nothing, 2000, shown at the institute. One of the most important artists to have emerged in Asia during the postwar period, Kusama has established a relationship with movements such as Surrealism, Minimalism, Pop art and Feminism. Her work refers to hallucinations that the artist has experienced since childhood and which she transposes to paintings, sculptures, drawings, collages, performances, installations, films, literature, fashion and design.

     

    GALERIA PRAÇA 

    The exhibition “Paul Pfeiffer, Vitruvian Experiments” will occupy one of the wings of Galeria Praça with two works by the American artist: sculpture Vitruvian Figure, 2008, and the video Empire, 2004. Born in Hawaii, with strong cultural links with the Philippines, Pfeiffer visited Inhotim last year to work together with the institute’s staff to plan the installation of his works.

    Inspired by the Olympic Stadium of Sydney, Vitruvian Figure is a large-scale sculpture of almost three meters high, and with one million seats (the real capacity of the arena is 80,000 spectators). Empire presents an anthropomorphic narrative about the activity of the construction of a wasp nest, inspired by the artwork with the same title by Andy Warhol.

    “In bringing together these two works, Pfeiffer evokes both the lack of life and movement in Vitruvian Figure and the power of life and creation in Empire,” says Fernanda Arruda, Inhotim’s adjunct curator. “Empire presents us with a structure — an architectural element that fits the need of the wasp — while Vitruvian Figure represents the fulfillment of the consumer’s needs. The nest is essential to the wasp while the stadium is not essential to sport. Vitruvian Figure makes a spectacle of us while reclaiming public space; Empire makes us complicit in the nest-building process, which is about procreation and the continuation of life.”

    Pfeiffer became known for his digital manipulations of images of athletes and celebrities, which the artist uses to explore the common tensions of contemporary culture, shedding light on their racial, religious and technological dimensions. His works connect contemporary culture with the history of art, politics, religion and media and has been exhibited and collected by important institutions including the Whitney Museum of American Art of New York, Hammer Museum, in Los Angeles, the Contemporary Museum, in Honolulu, and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Chicago.

     

    GALERIA FONTE 

    Located in one of the most visited areas of Inhotim, Galeria Fonte will feature the exhibition “To See Time Go By”, dedicated to audiovisual works of art. Along an immersive path, the exhibition invites the visitor to explore new possibilities of the image.

    Inhotim adopts one more preventive measure to fight the yellow fever

    Inhotim adopts one more preventive measure to fight the yellow fever

    As of Tuesday, visitors are required to show their immunization records to enter the park

    As of this coming Tuesday, January 23, all visitors must show their vaccination card in order to be granted access to the park, proving they had been immunized against the yellow fever at least ten days prior to their visit. This is yet another preventive action taken by the Institute, in partnership with the Health Department in the state of Minas Gerias, to raise awareness among visitors for how important it is to get immunized against the disease. For a while now, Inhotim has been making insect repellent available to visitors at strategic locations such as the Reception, Education Center, snack bars, cafes and restaurants.

    The Institute states that no episode of the yellow fever has been identified at Inhotim, and that all the necessary preventive actions are currently being taken to fight the disease. Since mid-2017 when the first episodes were identified in Minas Gerais, Inhotim has been taking a number of actions.

    Inhotim carried out an immunization campaign to provide vaccines and information to its employees. In addition, the Institute monitors animals on a daily basis.

    Immunization records/vaccination cards will be individually checked upon arrival at the parking lot. Only visitors who have been immunized against the yellow fever at least ten days prior to their visit to the Institute will be granted access to the Park.

    Opening hours have remained unchanged: Tuesday to Friday, from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM; weekends and holidays, from 9:30 AM to 5:30 AM. The (full price) admission fee is BRL 44 and tickets can be purchased at inhotim.org.br/visite/ingresso.

    On May 6, residents and tourists in Washington D.C. (US) will have the opportunity to know a little more about Inhotim. The Institute will participate in the 10th edition of Passport DC, invited by the Brazilian Embassy in Washington and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).

    Passaport DC will take place throughout May, with various activities encouraging residents and visitors to explore the city and the diverse cultural landscape that makes up the American capital. The event, which features street festivals, performances, exhibitions and workshops, opens the embassies’ doors for the public to visit the historical buildings where they are located. In total, 70 embassies will take part of the event, as well as more than forty DC-based cultural institutions.

    On May 6, the Around the World Embassy Tour will take place. From 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., more than six thousand visitors are expected. They will have the opportunity to visit the Brazilian Ambassador’s Official Residence in Washington and learn more about Inhotim, a cultural destination of international renown.

    The expansion of the Institute’s international presence is one of the outcomes of the “Inhotim: Global Change” project, carried out in partnership with the IDB since 2015, and aimed at encouraging actions related to climate change, in addition to the institutional strengthening of Inhotim.

    Exhibition at IDB headquarters in July
    During Passport DC, Inhotim will announce its upcoming initiative: the exhibit “Inhotim: At the Crossroads of Glocal Change”, which will open on July 18. For two months, the exhibition will occupy the gallery located at the IDB headquarters in Washington and present works of art from the Inhotim collection, as well as visual and sound experiences that refer to the gardens and landscapes of the Institute, providing the international public with a rare snatch of its attractions and collection highlights.
