modern, show on display at the Museu de Arte Brasileira da Faap (MAB Faap), aims to make the public perceive, in a concrete way, the artistic influences of week of 22 in Brazilian art. To this end, it was organized into two cores: Before and After 1922.

The first part, which is curated by Felipe Chaimovich and will be on display for three months, features works by Antônio Parreiras, Eliseu Visconti, João Batista Castagneto and others. The set includes the involvement of Paulo Prado, one of the main patrons and organizers of the Week of 22, and his influential family in the arts.

While before 1922 relies on loans from partner institutions such as Pinacoteca, Masp, Museu Afro Brasil and Itaú Cultural, the nucleus After 1922 includes only works from the MAB Faap collection.

The objective, according to curator Laura Rodríguez, is to show the characteristic effervescence of the avant-garde until the emergence of concretist groups. Within this concept, collectives such as Núcleo Bernardelli, Clube dos Artistas Modernos, Grupo Santa Helena, Grupo Guanabara and Atelier-Abstração will be approached. In addition to the Rio-SP axis, the group exhibition will highlight the reverberations of modernism in other regions of the country.
