“The city is our most direct landscape and territory for meeting with the other. It was thinking about the power of this meeting that artists were invited to create works that discuss, examine and interrogate urban public space. The exhibition will bring together works on themes such as the social history of Ibirapuera Park, making subjects invisible in the face of urban growth, collective food generation, the probabilities of human life in the future as well as the ways of listening to the speech of our neighbors. These are works that invite us to participate at times active, sometimes due to the experience of the body and that provoke reflection on the subject's relationship with the collective and with the environment ”, account Camila Bechelany, curator of the Mostra.
“The announcement of the 10th Mostra 3M de Artes shows us that art remains pulsating and eager for spaces of relationship and tension with the public. On the same path, our common place deserves to have works of art that talk to contemporary society and propose reflections and new ways of acting, mainly because we are going to happen in a post-social isolation period, where people will still be discovering a new reality. Ibirapuera Park is the common home of paulistas and a reference for meetings and diversity ”, affirms Fernanda Del Guerra, director of Elo 3, founder and organizer of the event.
For 3M, sponsoring the Mostra since its first edition, the theme “Common place: crossings and communities in the city ”works with pillars that are part of the essence of the company. “The 10th 3M Art Exhibition reflects the spirit of collaboration, the creative attitude, respectful integration with the environment and social engagement that make up 3M's DNA; consistently supporting a project like this for a decade connects us even more with society, in a democratic and symbolic way ”, Full Luiz Eduardo Serafim, Head of Marketing at 3M Brazil.
