ahhhh, capacete!

the capacete living space, originally uploaded by thefuturistics.

This is the main space at the capacete residency in Rio. We're almost done with our stay here in Gloria, but headed for more Capacete adventures in Sao Paulo at the end of the month. I've been conducting a workshop here and the third and final session will take place next week. The workshop is called Case Study: Art and the luxury goods market. For the first session i screened the opening scenes of an episode of Sex and the City, where Carrie and Charlotte head to the Sean Kelly Gallery to see the Marina Abramovic performance House with an ocean view. This episode introduces the topic of the art market and how it functions. The second session looked more closely at the gallery and art fairs, while the third and final session will summarize and hopefully make us all a lot smarter. ha!

in the middle of nowhere....that's where you find them. Precious jewels. Expensive stones. Inhotim is an upgraded sculpture park located a few kilometers outside the small town Brumadinho in Minas Gerais, Brazil, where the artwork on display is not limited by the usual confines of sculpture or park. Most work is shown in a custom built dome or gallery space and the park opened nine new projects a few weeks ago. One of them, Beam Drop by Chris Burden, is located on a hill top with a beautiful view over the horizon.
