PLAN AMÉRICAIN PT / EN
Plan Américain is Rodrigo Oliveira’s first solo exhibition at Balcony Arte Contemporânea.
The exhibition takes the context and location of the gallery as an underlying theme; the Avenida dos Estados Unidos da América (USA Avenue); as well as the film, Os Verdes Anos (The Green Years) of Paulo Rocha, 1963, filmed, almost in its entirety in the areas adjacent to the Alvalade neighbourhood.
By evoking the architecture of the buildings surrounding the gallery, the artist resorts, once more, to the housing models of Le Corbusier to address recurrent themes in his work. Such as utopia and dystopia in modern architecture, the concept of periphery and deterritorialization and cultural westernization in the age of artificial intelligence.
A exposição poderá ser visitada até 8 de Julho de 2023, de Terça-feira a Sábado, entre as 14h e as 19h30.
The exhibition can be visited until July 8th from Tuesday to Saturday, between 2 pm and 7:30 pm.
