About the exhibition
The exhibition uses the symbolism of water as a starting point to approach the conceptual and affective connections of the members and guests of Fonte, a collective studio, artistic residence and exhibition space in São Paulo.
In a total of more than 50 works in techniques such as painting, drawing, objects, and sculptures, the relationships developed in the space are transfigured in a philosophical scope, where the physical environment is perpetuated through the connections it makes possible.
The exhibition presents a wide variety of media and languages, bringing reflections about human connections and the role of physical space in the formation of these relationships.
Founded in 2013 by visual artists Marcelo Amorim, Nino Cais and Simone Moraes, FONTE is a São Paulo-based organization that offers residencies for international artists, stays for artists from other states in the country and temporary studios for young artists. It offers a free and public program including lectures, workshops, performances, video art projections, and open studios. The space has hosted artists such as Adrián Balseca (Ecuador), Nani Lamarque (Argentina), Pilar Quinteros (Chile), Sandra Gamarra (Peru), Gabrielle Goliath (South Africa), and Brazilians Rodrigo Braga and Antonio Sobral, and has established partnerships with Associação Cultural Videobrasil, Paço das Artes, and Instituto Tomie Ohtake, among others.
