DOCUMENT.Rio is the meeting of three top EUROPE-AMERICA-ASIA artists, three Latin Americans and three emerging Brazilian artists, exhibiting their most representative pieces in an installation built at MAM – Museu de Arte Moderna do Rio de Janeiro – for 15 days. After being invited to stay in Rio de Janeiro for the duration of the exhibit, they will make an analysis of « your looks », bringing up art and the world. This is to promote what’s most significant in the global contemporary art landscape, bringing up the present, the past and the FUTURE.
It will be an ANNUAL event in Rio de Janeiro which will gather a select group of artists regularly… DOCUMENT.Rio is a show that promotes lectures, workshops and discussions the same way FLIP (Feira de Literatura de Parati – Parati’s Literary Fair) does.
ITS GREAT ORIGINALITY is what will be an event connecting Rio de Janeiro to the world… it’ll be broadcast live on the WEB with the participation of the main international museums: MoMA, Bilbao, Centre Pompidou, Tate Modern, Reina Sofia, through ARTV, a network TV channel created by Indústria Imaginária specifically about art and its market. It is a GLOBAL encounter for contemporary art which aims to become a reference in the area. In each country, the Museum in charge invites its big names for the online conferences and debates, with the simultaneous involvement of every participating country.
