Gambiólogos (Kludgeology) 2.0 – Vazio S/A

Opened on the eve of the World Cup, the exhibition Gambiologos 2.0 (or Kludgeology) is on show at Oi Futuro Cultural Centre in Belo Horizonte (Brazil), and runs until August 17. Gambiologos 2.0 has its curatorial proposal hinged on three themes that have emerged from recent discussions on “Gambiologia”: improvisation in electronic art, the idea of collecting through accumulation, and the acceptance (or not) of the influence of popular culture and craft within the realm of the fine arts. Curated and conceived by Fred Paulino, the exhibition includes works by Arthur Bispo do Rosário, Cao Guimarães, Chelpa Ferro, Farnese de Andrade, The Grivo, Guto Lacaz and Fred Paulino, amongst other participants from Brazil, Japan, USA, England and France.

The exhibition design, by Vazio S/A, seeks not to compartmentalize the exhibition hall. Avoiding the idea of separate works in closed, white environments – a common solution in exhibitions of many works and little space – the show have their works juxtaposed in a continuous space. The metal screens on which the works are hanged do not separate them in rooms, thereby creating a visual overlay of objects and screens that confirms the curator’s concept of accumulation and collage.
