On view till October 17th in the brand new Brazilian Cultural Pavilion, located in Sao Paulo’s Ibirapuera Park, is the second installment of the traveling museum show, Transfer, which was first shown in Porto Alegre (southern Brazil) in 2008. A look at the cultural exchanges between the US and Brazilian youth that began in the ’80s and continues on to this day, Transfer dissects and interconnects the various movements; split into four curatorial sections ranging from the early old-school Brazilian skateboarders and artists (the “mauditos”), the “interventionists” such as Os Gemeos who’s installations penetrate Brazil’s cities, to Brazil’s more contemporary next generation artists (“the autoindicatos”) and finally closes out with a special showing of the Beautiful Losers exhibit (Barry McGee, ESPO, Thomas Campbell), curated by Christian Strike. Hi-Fructose is proud to present a look into the new Brazilian Cultural Pavilion, take a peek below.
