“from the margin to the edge”
With outmoded presuppositions of difference dismantled, and rigid judgments about other cultures undone, we finally arrive at the possibility of embarking together on the search for solutions that are in everyone’s interest. If nothing else, recent Brazilian production has this to contribute: the awareness that no progress can be made until the peripheral is integrated into the core of the collective imagination.
Rafael Cardoso
curator of the exhibition

“Portable memories, boxed dreams”. A sort of portal onto a new relationship between the eye and the space in which it roams. An opening packed full of fantasies about our memories, our now dreamable dreams.” Jum Nakao
