a study over a drawing
feb 02 - mar 25_ 2017
On the second floor, in An essay on drawing, professor and engraver Claudio Mubarac curated a small exhibition of drawings from the gallery’s collection. For Mubarac, who saw the exhibition Goeldi/Jardim, a gravura e o compasso, of which he was also curator, has appeared among the 10 best in the world by Hyperallergic in 2016, there were two challenges in organizing this collective: “the selection itself, for the exceptional quality of the works, and the production and diversified meanings that the drawing comes to have for artists with such different projects”. In view of this, Mubarac selected works by artists from the most varied generations, showing the temporal scope of Raquel Arnaud’s collection.
There are, for example, the “Portrait of Margarette” (1920), by Lasar Segall, in addition to a work from the collection of old drawings by Arthur Luiz Piza, from 1949 to more recent works such as an untitled drawing by Waltercio Caldas (1990). ) and a work produced by Ester Grinspum in 2016. “The intention was to create a drawing office where the silence of the works shelters, at the same time, the multiplicity of horizons and the various workshops of the designers”, explains Mubarac.
