In the theatre, a stage comes to life when the actors begin to perform. So it is with Lina Bo Bardiâ€™s architecture. Her buildings are vibrant when inhabited: they come to life with the energy, diversity and creativity of people.
Lina Bo Bardi: Together pays tribute to Linaâ€™s capacity to engage with every facet of culture and to see the potential in all manner of people. Artist Madelon Vriesendorp has conducted workshops at Solar do UnhÃ£o and combined objects made there with others of her own and artefacts by Brazilian craftspeople. Tapio Snellmanâ€™s film installation explores the life generated by SESC PompÃ©ia within SÃ£o Paulo and draws parallels with the city of Salvador. Combined, these two works do not merely recreate Linaâ€™s methods or represent her work, but instead allow a more direct experience through a form of re-enactment.
Assemble designed and built a flexible enclosure, a set of display furniture and a technical system. The exhibition furniture designed by Assemble can adapt to a range of gallery situations and presents the diverse content within one space, without hierarchy. The furniture was cast using snowcrete with vermiculite aggregate, which was then hand-hammered to make a rough, gold flecked surface. The material palette and construction methodology learn directly from Lina Bo Bardiâ€™s approach to making buildings, and the display of exhibition contents, without hierarchy, follows many of Linaâ€™s own curatorial practices.
The exhibition is curated by NoemÃ Blager and presented by Arper. Major support to MCAD is provided by the Miami Design District and TWENTY TWO GROUP. Additional support is provided by Luminaire.
