November at Inhotim
November brings new programs to Inhotim: Fourth Act – Quilombismo: Documents of a Pan-Africanist Militancy arrives at the Mata Gallery starting November 11.[link] The exhibition, jointly curated with the Institute of Afro-Brazilian Research and Studies (Ipeafro), provides an overview of Abdias Nascimento’s life, with Xangô as its central axis, and presents the artist’s multifaceted nature as a poet, playwright, actor, writer and politician.
Sortilege – Black Mystery, an adaptation of the play by Abdias Nascimento, will be staged on November 11 and 12, at the Inhotim Vale Theater. With three performances over the weekend, the show is directed by Adyr Assumpção, who incorporates into the play a repertoire that brings together the local atmosphere and the reinterpretation of contemporary racial issues.
The Marcenaria Gallery hosts the work Giro (2023), by Luana Vitra, starting November 11. Commissioned by Inhotim, Giro has as a reference the mineral and industrial landscapes with which the artist shares space in her surroundings, as well as the crafts of her parents to create an immersive environment in which gesture and form are confronted with such materials as copper, ceramics, and clay.
1st Brazilian Meeting of Palm Trees
Between November 15 and 17, Inhotim hosts the 1st Brazilian Meeting of Palm Trees. Organized by Inhotim’s Botanical Garden, the program features conversations on diversity, conservation, and landscaping about the most expressive botanical family in the institution’s gardens.
With the theme “palm trees that streak the sky,” a phrase used by Pedro Nehring (1955–2023), who was responsible for the landscaping at Inhotim until his passing, the event proposes a meeting between researchers, producers, collectors, landscapers, and students of different regions of the country. See the schedule and join us!
