The Paradoxo(s) da arte contemporânea: diálogos entre o acervo do MAC USP e do Paço das Artes (Contemporary art paradox(es): dialogues between MAC USP’s and Paço das Artes’s collections) exhibition was a suitable opportunity to revisit a fundamental artist for both institutions, for artistic research in the country, and for fostering and dialoguing with more current productions: Regina Silveira. Taken as the axis of the exhibition, from her work Paradoxo do Santo (A Saint’s Paradox), curators Priscila Arantes (Paço das Artes) and Ana Magalhães (MAC USP) selected a set of works by various artists contemporary to Regina Silveira who, in a way, cover the issues that emanate from her work. Another important aspect in the exhibition’s production process was exactly the updating of presentation materials in Silveira’s and other artists’ works present here, in order to conserve them.
