Instituto Tomie Ohtake announces the second edition of its Arte Atual program. Created by the Instituto’s Curating and Research Department (NPC), this initiative was designed to allow the realization of ambitious experimental projects by emerging artists, actively supported by art galleries nationwide. For this second edition, Modern Fears features Luiz Roque, Matheus Rocha Pitta and Nicolás Robbio, in partnership with Bolsa de Arte, Mendes Wood DM and Vermelho Art Galleries.
Curated by the NPC, Modern Fears derived from different understandings of what modern means—a keyword associated with the swift changes since the mid-nineteenth century, multiple social and scientific developments and implications, ranging from innovation and blatant contrast to the past all the way through industrialization and technological advances, as well as social control and standardization.
