The works shown represent one among many possible anthologies of the collection. On the first floor, the show is subdivided in rooms that examine four moments of the development of contemporary art: Brazilian neoconcretism, the production of the 1960s, the Japanese avant-garde group Gutai, and the practices of action art and performance art in the 1970s. The historical documents and artworks are presented alongside more recent works, indicating their impact on current art while also alluding to the idea of a history under construction.
In the floors -1 and -2, artworks in various media and on different supports by Anri Sala, Daniel Steegmann Mangrané, David Lamelas, Jorge Macchi, Marcius Galan, Marcellvs L., Michael Smith and Raquel Garbelotti are grouped into two sections that examine the relationships between sound and image, and illusion and perception.
The exhibition runs until 31 May 2015.
