Magazzino è lieta di annunciare Bevete Più Latte, la prima mostra personale del collettivo artistico Opavivará! in galleria.
Founded in Rio de Janeiro in 2005, Opavivará! is a collective of artists, all four anonymous members of which received BFA degrees from the Parque Lage School of Visual Arts, Rio de Janeiro. Its practice, which incorporates installation, performance, publishing, sound, and video, involves the creation of participatory situations through interactive and ephemeral public interventions. While humorous and playful, these projects also comment on Brazil’s political corruption and economic disparity.
Opavivará! has participated in group exhibitions and festivals including Espaço Cultural Sérgio Porto, Rio de Janeiro (2006); the Bienal Anual de Búzios, Búzios, Brazil (2009); Ecologica, Museu de Arte Moderna de São Paulo (2010); O Abrigo e o Torreno, Museu de Arte do Rio (2013); Acción Urgente, Fundación Proa, Buenos Aires, and Taipei Biennial (both 2014); Havana Biennial, and The City Is Ours, the Body Is Mine: Urban Spatial Practices in Contemporary Latin America, James Gallery, The Graduate Center, City University of New York (both 2015); and Sao Paulo Biennial; Projeto Brasil/The Sky Is Already Falling, Hebbel am Ufer, Berlin, and Transnomaden, Künstlerhaus, Frankfurt (all 2016). All the members of OPAVIVARÁ! live and work in Rio de Janeiro.
