Fábrica de Artes Marcos Amaro (FAMA) opens three new rooms and continues the exhibition “The Three-Dimensional in Marocs Amaro’s Collection”

Artworks from Tunga, Iberê Camargo, Laura Lima and Márcio Cravo inhabit the new venues; the expansion adds up to the permanent exhibition, curated by Ricardo Resende

Promoting Brazilian contemporary art is one the principles conducting Fundação Marcos Amaro (FMA), an institution based on Fábrica de Arte de Marcos Amaro (FAMA), in Itu, São Paulo’s countryside. Headed by Raquel Fayad and with Ricardo Resende’s curatorship, the organization opens three additional locations for the exhibition, with rising artist’s artworks.

The “Vers La Voie Humide 2 (2013)” artistic installment acts like some sort of gate to Tunga, and shares the 3rd room’s space with the iconic “Fantasmagoria” (1978), by Iberê Camargo, and “Homenagem a Farnese”, painting that is part of the collection “Semelhantes” (1980), by Siron Franco and also a photograph by Paul Setúbal.

At Room nr. 4, the public will be able to see the  artworks “Senzala” (2011-2017), from José Resende, [no title] and [no date] artwork, from Amílcar Castro, and “Se Vende” (2008), from Carmela Gross. At Room nr. 5, are introduced “Pássaro” (2015/2018), co-authored by Laura Lima and Zé Carlos Garcia, and “Pelo Amor…” (2018), by Maria Nepomuceno. Galpão de Fardas, location that occupies an open area at the Foundation, now hosts pieces from José Resende, Mário Cravo, Nicolas Vlavianos and Renata Lucas.

Assembled together, these artworks are part of “Frente, fundo, em cima, embaixo, lados. Volume, forma e cor: o tridimensional na coleção Marcos Amaro”, a continuous exhibition that expands itself as Marcos Amaro`s collection grows at the institution named after him. Launched in August, the exhibition already gathers more than fifty pieces of art, such as paintings, sculptures, embossed images, and installments, from many generations of artists and different influences, from Baroque to Contemporary, reaching even the modern pieces.
