Milton Machado: Cabeca [Head]
RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL • Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil • 6 August - 29 September 2014
|Milton Machado's 45-year career with a retrospective exhibition brings together more than 100 works of drawing, painting, photography, video, sculpture and installation, produced between 1969 and 2014 – many of which never shown in Rio.|
Milton Machado (born 1947, Rio de Janeiro) belongs to a generation of Brazilian artists whose careers began in the 1970s, with productions characterized by conceptual investigation and experimentation. His own production, initiated in that period and developed over the following decades with the exploration of diverse media and genres, can be said to constitute a 'theory' on the production of art, uniting conceptual universality and the singularity of authorial discourse, the political and the poetic dimensions. His multidisciplinary background – his training as an architect with a master degree in urban planning and a PhD in Fine Art.
CABEÇA [Head] include relevant works, such as a new version of the sculpture Módulo de Destruicão [Module of Destruction] (1990-2010-2014), part of the work-in-progress História do Futuro [History of the Future] (1978– ).
Another highlight is the series Conspiracão Arquitetura [Conspiracy Architecture], of drawings related to issues of architecture and urban design, shown for the first time at Galeria Sergio Milliet, Rio de Janeiro, in 1981.

Fabian Marcaccio: Paintant Stories
RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL • Casa Daros • 29 March - 10 August 2014
Fabian Marcaccio was born in Argentina in 1963 and is now based in New York. He uses modern techniques in an attempt to redefine painting, extending its parameters in time and space. His Paintant Stories is in every way an exceptional work. Over a length of approximately 100 meters the artist unfolds a universal panorama of contemporary existence.
Marcaccio presents the human condition as a network of discontinuities frozen at a single moment in time.
