This Saturday, May 18, Lidia Lisbôa opens Têta, her solo show at the Museu de Arte do Rio – MAR, in Rio de Janeiro. Curated by Amanda Bonan, Marcelo Campos, Thayná Trindade, and Jean Carlos Azuos.

The exhibition features around thirty works, mostly new, covering the different aspects and techniques that comprise the artist's production. The selection's starting point are the pieces Tetas que deram de mamar ao mundo, a series started in 2011, in which Lisbôa crochets and overlaps rings of fabric, forming large sculptures that hang from the ceiling down to the floor.

A similar gesture constitutes the Cupinzeiros sculptures, another long-running series by the artist featured in the show. In addition, specially commissioned works will be shown on this occasion.

The opening event starts at 11am, during which the admission to the museum is free.

Têta will be on view through September 8.
