auroras will foster an open dialogue between artists, critics, curators and the public
with exhibitions, site specific projects, publications and talks.
Six years ago, the first auroras exhibition brought together a set of small-format paintings, organized by Bruno Dunley. Following the same principle of this inaugural show, Pollyana Quintella and Ricardo Kugelmas brought together works by 27 artists divided into two different acts. The curator makes it clear that “There are no narrative or thematic resources that justify the approximation of all these names. What unites them, what unites us, is the love for the small format, the desire to play with it and observe how many infinities fit in each of these fragments.” In general, the exhibition presents a certain diversity present in contemporary Brazilian painting, producing a dialogue between generations and different perspectives.
auroras is pleased to present Writing about Reading by Maíra Dietrich in the library space. The collages in the series talk about the experience of writing and reading, through reports, drawings and observations about the figure of the reader and the library space. Based on the artist’s interest in thinking about language as a physical phenomenon, the pages of text and image merge, each collage is formed by photographs, printed texts, drawings and objects that write in their superimposition.
