The exhibition A Rua (The Street) showed work by some 20 Brazilian artists whose lives and work were closely linked to the city of Rio de Janeiro. The exhibition focused on the development of the art scene in Rio de Janeiro over the last four decades, with work of the late 60s and early 70s – the anni mirabiles of global conceptualism, in which Brazilian art played a prominent role - and the contemporary art movements. Besides these geographical and historical perspectives, A Rua, as the title clearly suggests, exposed the notion of the street, in particular the role and position of the street in contemporary art in Rio in all its variations. The street as a meeting place between people, between art and life, the street as experience space where the community renews itself every time; and alongside this, the street as a studio, stage, show location, the street as cultural production space, and finally the street as an arena and agora, the street as a public space.
