The Art Museum of the river-SEA, under the management of the Institute Odeon, opens to the public Evandro Teixeira: The Constitution of the world, exhibition that presents the history of almost 60 year career of one of the most important photojournalists of Brazil.

Thus, the visitor is invited to cross various aspects of city life – how the universe from the beach, of music and of the student demonstrations along the military dictatorship-, In addition to enlarge your look beyond River and beyond Brazil, with essays on Straws, the outback and the indigenous question, Neruda's death and the Chilean policy.

Evandro Teixeira occupies a unique place in the history of Photojournalism. His career of nearly five decades in the Jornal do Brazil-political icon of journalistic quality and graphics in the field of communication – makes him a constant reference to the later generations. Curated by Paulo Herkenhoff, cultural Director of the sea, the show makes the tireless search for the artist to capture the exact moment of events, without giving up their critical eye and giving the image interpretation, viewpoints and narratives that explore and overcome the circumstances of journalistic photography, taking it to a political level.

"In front of pictures of Teixeira – as already put Evandro Carlos Drummond de Andrade in poem (1986) of the same name about the artist-we ourselves also in perspective and, especially, in our relationship with the other and with the all. Unlike the generation of photojournalists before his, which sought to bring the light of Brazil ' deep ' and ' ancestor ' (politically kept at a distance), Evandro makes photography a daily Act of resistance to the opacity of the world, intimate and imbued with ID ", comments Herkenhoff.
