Instituto Inhotim permanently exhibits a contemporary art collection of internationally acknowledged excellence. To travel over its gardens, galleries, and outdoor pieces amid the landscape is an experience that provides artists and visitors with a singular kind of exhibition, one in which art and landscape design commingle to create a joint and unique experience.
The curatorial project of Inhotim is the fruit of continuous research that, by means of documentation, bibliographic material, and visual records, aims at understanding the particularities of the collection, as well as its different approaches and concepts. The curatorial mission is to produce and disclose knowledge, whether through exhibitions, publications, or online activities. Commissioning is one of the main curatorial vectors of the institution. Periodically, artists are invited to create works especially for Inhotim or thought to take art outside of the museum space, so as to foster and spread the artistic production. The possibility of making ambitious works in permanent exhibition is at the core of Inhotim, thus creating a long-term partnership with the artists of its collection.
