Part of a project that aims to create frictions between different collections, deconstructing hierarchies and territories, the exhibition Histórias da infância [Histories of childhood] gathers a wide range of representations of childhood from different periods, locations and schools, from African and Asian art to Brazilian and European, including religious, baroque, academic, modern and contemporary art, other than popular art and drawings made by children, all exhibited in the same space, side by side.
The exhibition, in which Rochelle Costi (Caxias do Sul, 1961) participates, includes around 200 works and is organized around permeable thematic nucleus. On the first floor, there are portraits, representations of families, education scenes, images of games, children artists and angels, and deat; on the first underground, the themes of nativity and maternity gain space. Iconic works from MASP’s collection – by artists like Van Gogh, Renoir, Chardin, and Portinari – are exhibited in new contexts, transversal and contemporary, in juxtaposition with works from different epochs.
The show is curated by Adriano Pedrosa, Fernando Oliva, and Lilia Schwarcz. The opening takes place on April 7th, and the exhibition goes on until July 31st, 2016. For more information, please visit MASP's website.
