The event will be held at the Correios Cultural Center in Rio de Janeiro for almost 40 days

In 2022, are celebrated the 50 years of World Environment Day, established by the UN, in 1972, in Sweden, in addition to scoring 30 years that the organization has been concerned with promoting meetings to address climate issues, having started at Eco92, in Rio de Janeiro. With environmental issues increasingly pressing around the world, to exhibition “Green Minds” aims to raise the flag for environmental preservation and debate climate change in the micro environment and in the global sphere.. The event, that will occur between 6 October and 19 November, curated by Cota Azevedo and Isabela Simões and cultural production by Augusto Herkenhoff, that will propose to the artists of Coletivo Zagut actions to occupy the external patio of the Centro Cultural Correios do Rio de Janeiro (CCC –RJ).

“The topic of ecology is a constant topic among artists, either by the use of materials from nature, recycled, whether acting in the middle to carry out a work. In the contemporary, one can observe the reflections that involve the ecosystem with a focus on sociocultural issues and climate policy. In this way, the Green Minds exhibition has as its motto the United Nations meeting, COP27, which discusses the greenhouse effect and global efforts to reduce polluting gas emissions”, says Cota Azevedo, Curator of the exhibition.

A COP 27 is a United Nations conference that brings together world leaders to debate climate issues and think of solutions to reduce the impact of global warming.. This year, it will take place in Egypt. In October 2021, the World Health Organization (OMS) published a report, used as the basis for the latest edition of the COP 26, em Glasgow, which highlighted the need to comply with an old issuance agreement “zero carbon” by the year 2050 to ensure human life.

The “Green Minds” exhibition will include three different actions, that serve as an alert for environmental issues. The first will be exposed for more than 40 days in the courtyard of the Centro Cultural Correios, from the opening date. The second is thought to be on the same day as the opening of the COP 27, in 7 November. The third and final action will be held on the last day of the event.. The works and actions can also be seen through an art catalog, in book format, on editorial platform and virtual gallery.

“The arts have been giving visibility to this concern, being a recurring theme of works and exhibitions, including Zagut. They are related works about the destruction of the planet, the coronavirus pandemic and the need for harmonious coexistence. In countless ways art relates to ecology.”, points the also curator, Isabela Simões.
