Solar Art Gallery will promote, from 15 September, in Copacabana, the exhibition "through the looking glass". With 14 artists, curated by Isabel Sanson Portella and Keyur Benedicto and coordination of Osvaldo Centeno, the show takes us on a journey from the mirror, going through it, and brings us their reflections and thoughts materialized in art.
Mirrors are surfaces that reflect a light Ray in a direction set. With this pragmatic view, It was proposed a challenge to 14 contemporary artists who work in the city of Rio de Janeiro: thinking through the mirror.
In response to the challenge, the works presented a search for understanding of himself and of the world, through videos, facilities, performances, photographs, Visual poetry and paintings.
In copper since the fifth Millennium b.c., the mirrors evolved various materials until we get to contemporaries selfies on the screen of a Smartphone. The mirrors and the arts this shows instigarão real search beyond the image. The exhibition, free, goes to 30 October. Solar Art Gallery is on Rua Saint Roman, nº 146, Copacabana.
