DE GIANCARLO MECARELLI
DE 09 AUGUST A 10 DE SETEMBRO OF 2006
With the intention of honoring the culture african, Giancarlo Mecarelli conceived and produced the exhibition "Beauty Afro-Brazilian", The concept of this new exhibition had its focus on the beauty of woman african-Brazilian. This aesthetic perception is materialized from portraits of black women who make daily work and many who posed for the first time a professional photographer. The beauty that shines through in photographs documenting the strength and expressiveness of these women.
The idea of associating the photo excerpts from the works of Jorge Amado arose from the encounter between Ovid and Giancarlo Poli Junior, writer who lives a year ago in Paraty and that took care of the selection of texts. Text and images are in permanent dialogue so that they realize that there is proximity between the feminine universe contained in the work of Amado and beauty of black women that make up the human landscape and Brazilian Paraty, with all its contrasts.
The opening of the exhibition on 9 August coincided with the opening of the IV FLIP, Paraty International Literary Festival, which this edition was dedicated to the works of Jorge Amado.
The gallery was also part of the programming Parallel Circuit Ideas, OFF FLIP.
