Starting March 04, Pinacoteca de São Paulo, the art museum of the São Paulo State Secretariat of Culture, features an installation by Curitiba-based artist Eliane Prolik, on the second floor of the Pina Luz building (Room C). The work has been part of the institution’s collection since 2012, when it was acquired by members of the Patrons of Contemporary Art Program.
Entitled “Pra que” (2007–2009), the work features an arrangement of 45 aluminum license plates with electrostatic painting, and has already been exhibited in Londrina and Curitiba. “This work explores the potential for a comparison between word and image. This will be the opportunity to present it for the first time at the Pinacoteca and in the state of São Paulo, and to propose a dialogue with the other works on display at the Pinacoteca in this period,” explains curator Valeria Piccoli.
The installation by Eliane Prolik remains on view through May 22, 2017, on the second floor of the Pinacoteca – Praça da Luz, 2. Admission is open 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. Pinacoteca de São Paulo is located across the street from the Luz station of the Sao Paulo Metrô and CPTM, and also offers free parking.
