Exibition | Nossa Casa
The Museum of the Brazilian House, an institution of the State Culture Secretariat, managed by Civil Society through the House of Arts and Artifacts of Brazil, inaugurates on August 29th, at 10am, the panel ‘Nossa Casa’, with curated by Brazilian architect Camila Fix and Dutch architectural and design specialist Jorn Konijn. The visitation period goes until 2 December.
With the purpose of raising questions about the identity of the design made by Brazilian professionals, the panel presents 12 proposals of objects thought as symbolic representative of the “our house”, the Brazilian house; or what these chosen designers conceived as an idea of objects for the contemporary Brazilian house. The participants come from different regions of the country, with the aim of presenting the plurality of Brazilian cultures, accents and landscapes, bringing together works by Ronald Sasson, Inês Schertel, Guto Requena, Carol Gay, Gustavo Martini, Andrea Bandoni, Studio MK27, Plataforma4, Mule Preta, Alva Design and Adolini + Simonini. The set design is inspired by the Studio MK27’s “Memories Cut Out” project.
Installed in front of MCB’s restaurant, the exhibit depicts, through objects made by the 3D printing technique, the participants’ response from curators expressed in objects and prototypes that were also presented at this year’s Design Week in Milan. of the “Be Brazil” program organized by the Brazilian Agency for the Promotion of Exports and Investments (Apex-Brasil).
The Museu da Casa Brasileira, an institution of the São Paulo State Department of Culture, is dedicated to the preservation and diffusion of the material culture of the Brazilian house, being the only museum in the country that specializes in architecture and design. The MCB program includes temporary and long-term exhibitions, with an agenda that also includes activities of the educational service, debates, lectures and publications contextualizing the museum’s vocation for the formation of a critical thinking in themes such as architecture, urbanism, housing, economy urban mobility and sustainability. Among its innumerable initiatives, the MCB Design Prize, the main award of the segment in the country, made since 1986; and the Casas do Brasil project, to rescue and preserve memory about the rich diversity of the country.
