Tonico Lemos Auad in 'Enchanted Bodies / Fetish for freedom'
The year 2018 is a landmark moment in the history of the GAMeC, with the 15th edition of the Premio Lorenzo Bonaldi per l'Arte - EnterPrize, an important international art award dedicated to curators aged under 30. The Gallery initiated the competition in 2003, with the support of the Bonaldi family, with the intention of paying homage to Lorenzo Bonaldi's love of art and his passion for collecting.
'Enchanted Bodies / Fetish for Freedom' is the brainchild of Bernardo Mosqueira, founder and director of the independent Solar dos Abacaxis space in Rio de Janeiro. An international panel of judges selected the exhibition proposal in May 2017, deeming it to "reflect profound changes in contemporary society while reading the exhibition space in an absolutely innovative and unusual way, placing the visitor at the centre of an active experience, interacting with the works of many artists".
