The concept defined by Camila Bechelany for the 10th Mostra 3M de Arte, that occupies the Ibirapuera Park for the first time, one of his inspirations is the following quote by modernist architect Lina Bo Bardi: “When the space is entirely familiar, it becomes a place. ” This statement has a congruence when it comes to this park, a space sought by those seeking peace, socialization, leisure, contact with nature and, also, with art. “The call for proposals encourages artists to think of various layers of bringing people closer to this place, and also the green space as resistance and valorization of what is common to all, regardless of social class or age group ”, account Camila Bechelany.
To participate in the public notice, it is enough to present projects that are connected with this theme, not only in content, but also in format. Being an unpublished work, that dialogue with the common public and that resist climate factors and human interventions are some of the evaluation criteria.

“Taking the Exhibition to Ibirapuera Park is a decision that aims to really bring art to the routine of people, who seek this space for many different goals. And it doesn't matter why this person is there or how old they are, she will be able to access and interact with a work of art, that somehow will dialogue with her, providing accessibility in the broadest sense of the word. ” says Fernanda Del Guerra, director of Elo 3, founder and organizer of the event.
