Henrique Oliveira’s Transarquitetônica in Sao Paulo, Brazil

Internationally recognized artist, Henrique Oliveira poses a poetic discussion of history of architecture, of shelters and caves of the past by a challenging installation occupying 1600 m² building with strong brand of modern sculpture Niemeyer at MAC USP, Brazil.

The giant snaking columns designed by the architect curve through the space creating caverns, pathways and obstacles for the audience. Transarquitetônica of Henrique Oliveira is not just an installation, but commands itself as a place, a route with multiple possibilities that ends where it began. It is a work of architecture that combines sculpture and painting, offering various stimuli that the visitor gets to go to work.

The exhibition remains until November 30, open to the public on Tuesdays from 10 am to 21 pm and Wednesday through Sunday from 10 to 18 hours. Admission is free so be sure to check it out if you’re in Sao Paulo for the World Cup 2014:
