WEAVING ART AND DESIGN – From Genaro to Gillon
The Gallery Passado Composto Século XX completes its fifteen years of success, celebrating and participating in this 5th edition of MADE with the theme “TRAMAS” (WEAVING). In this theme that joins and intertwines us, by affinity and by the gallery specialization, we present the exhibition, curated by Graça Bueno, "WEAVING ART AND DESIGN - From Genaro to Gillon", valuing our Brazilianness and the memory of our national masters in the art of tapestry and in the modern design.
The tapestries with their colored and tropical threads, embroidered or woven on the loom, are unique and individual expressions of each artist who conceives the drawing and the painting with a three-dimensional vision. In this conception, besides the final works, in flat and sculptural tapestries dating from 1960 to 1990, the gallery also exhibits, masterpieces such as studies and model cards, of artists: Genaro de Carvalho (1926-1971), Jacques Douchez (1921-2012), Norberto Nicola (1930-2007), Rubem Dario (1941-1978), Jean Gillon (1919-2007) and the active Eva Soban. Composing this artistic climate we will have an authour contemporary photograph by Ruy Teixeira.
The setting of the exhibition is crowned with modern period furniture, from the master Joaquim Tenreiro (1906-1992), from the artist Geraldo de Barros (1923-1998) made by the cooperative Unilabor (1954-1967) and from the “Ambiente”, that was the first modern gallery In São Paulo, founded in 1951.
In order to illuminate contemporaneously the historical works, also with craftsmanship and mineral sources, we present the new creation of wallsconces made with millennial rock crystal stones, created by the designer Cida Santana, founder of the brand PASSADO COMPOSTO in 1988.
At MADE we will also be launching the second limited edition of the “Jangada” (Raft) armchair with its stool in ”Louro Freijó” certified wood, created in 1968 by the artist and designer Jean Gillon, reissued by the gallery, with the authorization from the author's family, being recognized as one of the award-winning icons of the national design.
