The 33rd edition of the Panorama of MAM São Paulo, curated by Lisette Lagnado, explores the improvised reality of modernity by showcasing the history of the museum itself. Founded in 1948, MAM has occupied six different buildings and only settled down in 1969, under the Ibirapuera Marquee, projected by Oscar Niemeyer. When he designed a marquee approximately 620 meters long to connect his buildings in Ibirapuera Park, Niemeyer created the essential void of a modern urbanity, on the occasion of the celebrations for the IV Centennial of São Paulo, in 1954.
