Galeria Berenice Arvani opens on March 31 at 19h, the collective exhibition Razão Concreta (“Concrete reason“). Curated by Celso Fioravante, the exhibition includes about 40 works by 28 artists, dating from the early 1950s until 2015. The show prioritizes works that were so often on display and that come from private collections and the legacy of the artists themselves, as well as rare works, which were part of biennials and other important exhibitions.
The exhibition includes seminal artists of São Paulo and Rio concretism as Rubem Ludolf, Lothar Charoux, Antonio Maluf, Judith Lauand, Hermelindo Fiaminghi, Mauricio Nogueira Lima, João José Costa, Geraldo de Barros, Hercules Barsotti, Amilcar de Castro, Luiz Sacilotto and Alfredo Volpi. As well as contemporary artists that today are inspired by the aesthetic qualities of the movement, which, even 60 years after first manifestations in Brazil, is still a source of beauty and inspiration, as in the works of Helô Alcântara Machado, Lucia Glaz and Roberto Micoli.
