Starting November 9th, Pinacoteca de São Paulo – the art museum of the São Paulo State Secretariat of Culture – presents the exhibit “De dentro para fora: ação colaborativa dos funcionários da Pinacoteca” [“From the inside out: A collaborative action by Pinacoteca employees”], based on the creativity and initiative of the museum’s employees.
Fruit of the “Together at Pina” project created and disseminated internally to celebrate the 110th anniversary of the Pinacoteca, the exhibit will be presented in the windows of the museum’s façade overlooking Parque da Luz. The panels are diagrams silk-screened on paper and glued onto wood, in the same manner as street posters and billboards are glued in public spaces, known as “wheatpasting” or “poster bombing.”
The panels were all made by Pinacoteca employees who – in pairs, groups or individually – elaborated the designs.
The project was coordinated by printmaker and museum docent Augusto Sampaio in partnership with the Pina Educational Action staff and with the collaboration of the Communications and Human Resources departments.
“From the inside out: A collaborative action by Pinacoteca employees” can be seen from the Parque da Luz, which is next door to the Pinacoteca, through May 29, 2017 – Praça da Luz, 2. Admission of the museum is Wednesday through Monday from 10:00 am to 5:30 pm, and visitors are allowed to remain until 6:00 pm. Tickets cost R$ 6 (full price) and R$ 3 (half-price for students, seniors, etc.). Admission is free-of-charge for children under 10 and adults over 60. On Saturdays, admission is free for all visitors.
