Galeria Luisa Strina presents “Homo Ludens”, group show curated by Ricardo Sardenberg, parallel to the 32nd São Paulo Biennial. Inspired by the homonymous book by Johan Huizinga, the show seeks to address the ludic character of the works instead of matters such as rationality and production. The ludic here is understood as the expression of the artistic game, however the game isn’t fundamental on the artistic production, it is in the game and by playing that the exhibition materializes itself.
Participating artists are Bas Jan Ader, José Bento, Pedro Caetano, Alex Červený, Tiago Carneiro da Cunha, Wesley Duke Lee, Marcius Galan, Fernanda Gomes, Agnieszka Kurant, Guto Lacaz, Leonilson, Jarbas Lopes, Jorge Macchi, Montez Magno, Marepe, Cildo Meireles, Rivane Neuenschwander, Pedro Reyes, Dieter Roth, Beto Shwafaty, Erika Verzutti, among others. ‘Homo Ludens” opens on August 31 and it occupies the gallery and Anexo, experimental space reactivated in April (Rua Padre João Manuel, 974a).
