león ferrari: nós não sabíamos

pinacoteca do estado, são paulo, brazil

The Pinacoteca de São Paulo, museum of the Secretaria de Cultura e Economia Criativa (Secretary of Culture and Creative Economy) of the state of São Paulo, presents, from 26th October, 2019 until 16th February, 2020, the exhibition León Ferrari: Nós não sabíamos [We Did Not Know], which brings together fifty works, belonging to the museum, by the Argentinian. Organized by the Núcleo de Curadoria e Pesquisa (Curation and Research Centre) of Pinacoteca, the show will take place in room C, adjacent to the room exhibiting Pinacoteca’s collection of 19th Century Brazilian art, and emphasises the political aspect that characterised Ferrari’s production, charged with scathing criticisms of art institutions, political systems and the contemporary morality of the 1960’s and 1970’s. This is the first time the museum has exhibited two complete series from its collection of works by the artist, who died in 2013.
