There are 150 pieces of art created by the Bishop and 50 from ten different invited artists. For the first time the exhibition focusses on the two ‘worlds’ that have made an impact on the Bishop’s work: the Juliana Moreira colony in Jacarepegua, where he lived for 50 years; and Japaratuva in Sengipe, his hometown. ‘The Bishop’s two “deserts”,’ says the curator of the exposition, Marcelo Campos.
‘The exhibition shows the Bishop’s desire of dealing with the two central places in his life, very different from each other, Jacarepegua and Japaratuva. The wide search carried out on such places points towards characteristics, information, history, drama, and poetry that will strengthen the exhibition main purpose,’ explains Marcelo.
The exposition is divided in three main areas: the birth, the colony, and the worlds the Bishop made up. Each area is going to be marked by means of a careful selection of artwork and biographical material. Ricardo Resende, the museum curator, believes that the exhibition will radically change the way of analysing, studying and contextualizing the Bishop’s work in the contemporary art.
