THE PONTES BASEMENT
Focused on access and mobility of contemporary artistic production, the Gallery launches its new space for exhibition – THE PONTES BASEMENT – presenting paintings, photography, sculpture, assemblages, urban art, illustrations and several others, bringing together consecrated names, juvenile protagonists and emerging talents from the academic environment, coordinated by Danilo Blanco and Fernando Zelman.
Mixing expression genres, the Pontes Basement is inaugurated with the show “IT IS ALL OURS”, presenting works of Gejo, Jaime Prades, Isabele Ribot, Drago, Mário Francisco/ Der Metropol, Liana Keller, Magy Imoberdorf, Mônica Jackson, Roberto Santana, Rodrigo Rosner, Rogério Cavalcanti, Thais Velloz’o and many others.
Galeria Central is a dynamic laboratory of creative ideas, directing its actions to the production, diffusion and democratization of the access to art and contemporary culture, sinergically involving urban juvenile protagonists, new talents from the academic environment and consecrated names, with an emphasis on the mixture of expression genres.
“Galeria Pontes is exclusively dedicated to popular art. It is the result of the loving sunny outlook of Edna Matosinho de Pontes, who travelled all over Brazil in search of pieces that inventively expressed the magic of Brazilian people and the force of our nature.
When choosing artists and pieces, Edna let herself be guided by passion, but always sought for the horizons of authentic creativity. Thus, with patience and the necessary obstinacy, Edna Matosinho de Pontes amassed a rich and diversified collection. The works come from several very distant Brazilian regions – they were made in the Amazon forest, in the Mato Grosso swampland, in the Goiás thickets, in the Jequitinhonha valley, in Minas Gerais, in the Pernambuco hinterland, summing up the local wide world they came from. The ensemble forms a landscape of the Brazilian soul, presenting a country dreamt of by its people, with exuberance, mysticism and sensuality.
Galeria Pontes is in itself sunny, a rainbow. A space full of vitality. Energy that springs up non-stop, because popular art is germinal, full of life. “
