“Cabana do Xamã” (“The Shaman’s Hut”), projected by Arthur Casas for Casa Cor, was entirely made with Brazilian artwork. He mixed Brazilian popular art from Galeria Pontes with locally designed pieces, mostly by him. In the article signed by Beto Abolafio, we see that “he feels it is common to sense a certain contempt towards Brazilian popular art. People consider it poor. Well, Arthur goes the opposite direction. A glass niche has been cut through this extension, almost from start to finish, serving as a gallery to expose wood and terracotta artifacts by Fernando Rodrigues, Miramar, Irinéia and Antonio Poteiro, among other artists – some of them anonymous – from different parts of Brazil.
