The biennial project OiR, which begins this September and ends with the 2016 Olympics, promotes original interventions by renowned artists in picture-postcard locations around the city
The event is sponsored by HSBC, Oi, the Government of Rio de Janeiro State, and the City Government of Rio de Janeiro, with cultural support from Oi Futuro and the Ministry of Culture
After accommodating a major conference dedicated to the environment and in the imminence of hosting two athletic events of gargantuan proportions, Rio de Janeiro, starting in September, will also receive one of the largest exhibitions of public art ever held in the country. Every two years through 2016—in the wake of Rio+20 and simultaneously with the World Cup and then the Olympics—the unprecedented project OiR—Other Ideas for Rio will invite internationally renowned artists to interfere in emblematic locations in the city’s urban landscape.
