MIGUEL RIO BRANCO AT SILVIA CINTRA + BOX4
Miguel Rio Branco, one of the greatest names in photography and Brazilian contemporary art, opens at the gallery, on September 27th, the exhibition “Through the golden eye”. Unlike the last two exhibitions of the artist at the gallery, when the woman was the central theme, now the works do not have the presence of the human figure.
Between diptychs, triptychs and polyptychs – mounted by Miguel as a jigsaw puzzle of photographs of different times and places – the exhibition is constructed as a poetic exercise of no themes, just a journey of the artist’s eye on landscapes, architectural details, horses, a disabled wheel, remnants of things and relics.
Known for works of strong social and political nature, such as the Maciel series, developed at Pelourinho in the late 1970s and Santa Rosa at a boxing academy in the 1990s, the exhibition at Silvia Cintra gallery is a good opportunity for the public to know a more lyrical side of Miguel Rio Branco´s work.
