The exhibition Design for Modern Daily Life in Brazil, 1920-1960 comprises an ensemble of works related to the circulation of modern art in Brazil, especially in urban settings in the first half of the 20th century. The MAC USP collection contains works by modern artists that allow us to observe the means by which this art style was introduced in everyday life. The exhibition benefits from the critical debate afforded by the conditions found at MAC USP to develop research and disseminate it to the public. Works were select for the exhibition and originally designed to circulate in various domains of everyday life. This exhibition affords us the opportunity not only to reflect on the solutions to display these works in the exhibition space − merely hanging all the drawings on the walls, for example, would validate traditional exhibition techniques and level the interpretations that the organizers are trying to propose − but also to understand more precisely where these works fit in the actual MAC USP collection.
