A Sangue no Alguidá has been widely covered by the Brazilian Press

By MoCA-Americas Team

The Brazilian press, particularly in the state of Goiás, has extensively covered the opening of the exhibition A Sangue no Alguidá at the Museum of Contemporary Art of the Americas in Miami. This exhibit gained notoriety after being abruptly canceled by the Museu Nacional dos Correios in Brasília due to its erotic content. It was inaugurated just days later at the Museu Nacional da República in Brasília following a whirlwind 48-hour installation. The exhibition delves into Latin American dirty realism, depicting the dark parallels between the narratives of Gutiérrez and the paintings of Fogaça.

Curated by Dayalis González Perdomo and produced by Malu da Cunha, the exhibition immerses itself in Latin American dirty realism, depicting the dark parallels between the narratives of Gutiérrez and the paintings of Fogaça. The collection features 28 works that combine painting, collage, and photography, evoking themes such as social degradation and sensuality through a sordid underworld that resonates with Gutiérrez's literature. Members of the diplomatic corps from the Brazilian Consulate in Miami attended the presentation, with the active participation of José Renato Ruy Ferreria, Deputy Consul and Head of Education and Culture at the Consulate, standing out. He engaged with the artists and staff members of the Museum of Contemporary Art of the Americas.

This collaboration marks the first action of an exchange between top cultural institutions of the State of Goiás, particularly with the Secretary of State for Culture of Goiás (Secult) and the Museum of Contemporary Art of the Americas in The Crossings, Kendall, Miami. Selected pieces from the museum's collection, grouped under the project Hidden Masterpieces, will be exhibited next year at the Vila Cultural Cora Coralina and the Oscar Niemeyer Cultural Center in Goiânia, Brazil.
