  • Arte/Cidade 4: Brasmitte

    SESC | Pompéia
    Clelia street, 93 Pompeii
    June 17–September 30, 2000

    For the fourth in a series of exhibitions organized under the theme of art and the metropolis, cultural critic Nelson Brissac Peixoto has invited an international roster of twenty-five artists and architects to develop site-specific works in São Paulo's Zona Leste. With the renovation of Berlin's Mitte designated as paradigm, interventions by the likes of Ana Maria Tavares, Mauricio Dias and Walter Riedweg, Rem Koolhaas, and Vito Acconci target a district currently the focus of various urban restructuring initiatives. The resulting exhibition will animate key issues surrounding redevelopment and renewal efforts in São Paulo and beyond.
