    Museu de Arte da Pampulha

    November 20, 2001–January 9, 2002

    To open the season, Brazil's rapidly changing institutional scene welcomes a new exhibiton program, in a converted casino, dedicated to the generation of artists that emerged during the '80s and '90s. Designed by Oscar Niemeyer and distinguished by “lavish interiors in mirror, aluminum columns and marble floors,” the host venue is elegantly situated on Pampulha Lake in Belo Horizonte (once home to Lygia Clark). The program's inaugural exhibition, organized by independent curator Adriano Pedrosa, surveys twelve years of work by Edgard de Souza, whose intricate, suggestive forms provides a fascinating match for the architect's sensual modernism.
