Curator Daniel Rangel

The Modern Art Museum of Bahia reopens its doors after 5 years of refurbishments. Its firts exhibition is Dona Lina’s museum, an hommage to Lina Bo Bardi – italian-brazilian architect recently awarded the Special Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement award at the Venice Biennale – who concieved and directed the museum between 1959 and 1963. The show follows Lina’s conception of the collection, presenting side by side “erudite” and popular arts, modern and contemporary artists.

Almost readymade sculptures by Julio Villani from the collection of the museum are presented : Tarsila’s cow takes place beside Bull in the forest, by Tarsila do Amaral which inspired it, and clay sculptures by Mestre Vitalino. Two Birds also take part in the exhibition.
