The group exhibition "Call block" opens on day 08 February brings 20 photographs of 6 artists, curated by Francisco Almendra. According to the curator of a new generation of photographers began tracking the movement in the streets “Their starting points vary: informally about recording the revelry with friends, or doing photography the central axis of their own individual characters, costumes; others bringing a photojournalistic look at the scene that took shape and asked to be immortalized.”

intimate portraits explore the joy and individual expression within the crowd. The body the gentle body of revelers is registered with the sweat batteries. care Scenes, love and care between strangers are immortalized in the whirlwind of the procession. The United rapture to an inner peace is revealed repeatedly to the lenses in the chaos euphoric colored glitter.

Virtual reality technology comes into play as a sensory experience activation. visitors, by placing the glasses, transport to another reality – enter one of the traditional blocks of Rio's Carnival, only, virtual, and with an unusual proposal. “Block calls” It presents a challenge: it takes dancing to call the block, otherwise the viewer remains alone on the island of Paqueta. The desire to see the party of course requires a commitment to expose, just as the members of the blocks do every year with their playful banter. This invitation-challenge encourages us to face our own fears: exposure to unknown, the fear of not knowing how to dance, the judgment of those who observe us from outside, the fear of surrendering without guarantees. These are the same issues faced - and overcome - for all who are part of the alternative Carnival.

For the curator, the spirit of Carnival runs through our bodies while we feel united with those who advocate this same spirit the city streets “Imbued with this learning, We took the glasses with a new perspective on our looks.” diz Francisco Almendra.
