The exhibition of the Campana Brothers at the MAM RIO, which opened on MARCH 14, is the largest art exhibition ever made by the duo during their 35-year career Bringing together projects that have never before been seen, art installations designed specifically for space, and a wide selection of design pieces and sculptures developed over the past decades, the show aims to challenge the audience with a bold, immersive, and provocative montage.
“After 35 years I do not know if I am a designer or an artist, I don’t worry about it anymore if the piece has functionality or not,” he adds. About their long-lived work, he addsCampana Brothers add.
In somewhat of creative chaos, the two modern art designers conceived an immersive environment, made up of a large set of contemporary art installations, as well as more than a hundred pieces selected for the show, in which striking matters in their production stand out as the ability to integrate handcraft and industrial references, a deep formal and material boldness, an intense flirting with surrealism, and a strong environmental concern.
Internationally known for their work in the field of design, with important partnerships with renowned brands such as EDRA, ALESSI, and LOUIS VUITTON, a constant presence at major events and art exhibitions of world design and with works in the world’s leading collections and museums, they have opened unprecedented space which seemed closed to Brazilian creators.
