ALÉM DA IMAGEM gathered young artists to comprise a rich landscape of the contemporary Brazilian photography, revealing trends and perspectives of the relationship between photography/fine arts and exploring the expansion of the universe of the photographic language to other media. It has offered the audience the opportunity of knowing the works made by inhabitants of the Maré community, allowing them to show their works and encouraging other young people to search personal and professional alternatives by means of art. The exhibition was divided in two groups: “corpo/espaço na nova fotografia brasileira” (body/space in the new Brazilian photography) and “ensaios poéticos que chegam da Maré” (poetic essays emerging from Maré). The curatorship was developed based on the selecti on of young arti sts that inherited from their predecessors – the group of avant-guard artists from the 60’s and 70’s – the experimentation, the strictly intellectual approach, the record of performance, the serial presentation, and the role of social relationships and the architectural space in conceiving the image.
