The 2nd Arts Biennial Of The Fine Arts School At The Rio De Janeiro Federal University

Monday, January 18, 2010

The 2 nd Arts Biennial Of The Fine Arts School At The Rio De Janeiro Federal University will bring together paintings, photography, gravures, video, sculptures all focalized on the “Antropofagiando O Criador” (“cannibalizing the Creator”) theme.

The main idea behind this second edition is to make use of the cultural initiative “the Year of France in Brazil” in order for local students to create things departing from neo-classicism, a French movement dating back from the end of the 18th century that was brought to Brazil along with the French Artistic Mission, and that started the development of our country’s own artistic identity. The event will be held from 1-10 th January.
