Take advantage of your day off and visit Quarto Ato – O Quilombismo: Documentos de uma Militância Pan-Africanista [Fourth Act – Quilombismo: Documents of a Pan-Africanist Militancy], an exhibition that covers the trajectory of Abdias Nascimento and concludes the cycle of the Abdias Nascimento and the Black Art Museum Program at the Mata Gallery.

At the Marcenaria Gallery, discover Luana Vitra’s commissioned work, the installation Giro (2023), which marks the beginning of the space’s new vocation, which now hosts temporary exhibitions.

Also visit the Yayoi Kusama Gallery, which features two immersive installations by the artist. Check the visitation rules.

At the Praça Gallery, Mônica Ventura occupies the space with A noite suspensa ou o que posso aprender com o silêncio [The suspended night or what I can learn from silence] (2023) and Mestre Didi continues on view with the exhibition Mestre Didi – os iniciados no mistério não morrem [Mestre Didi – those initiated in the mystery do not die].

At the Lago Gallery, Fazer o moderno, construir o contemporâneo: Rubem Valentim [Making the modern, building the contemporary: Rubem Valentim] features paintings,

reliefs, objects and emblems from a period of more than 30 years of production by Rubem Valentim. At the Fonte Gallery, Direito à forma [Right to form] presents the relationship between form and narrative in the production of thirty black artists from Brazil, portraying the possibilities of authorship in the relationship between form and narrative.
