This thought experiment, but also accuracy and method, prioritized by artist Inga made the workshop a central hub for the artistic scene of Niteroi and Rio de Janeiro. “The Ingá workshops were one of the cradles of art years 80. A generation that was born in workshops, that not attended formal lessons ' or ' universities. In this sense, the Parque Lage, the Museu do Ingá and MAM represented artistic practice "training locations, says Marcus Otter who signs the curator of the exhibition along with Viviane Matesco.

The exhibition Experimentation and Method extends the engraving in a contemporary hybrid field. The discussion of reproducibility of images with multiple processes and innovative technologies will be a way to clarify the engraving on a magnified and experimental design.
