This event has now finished
From Saturday, January 13 2018 to Sunday, May 27 2018
In this exhibition, 60 or so objects and documents explore the history of the National Museum of Fine Arts.
For 80 years now this cultural institution has been a major monument in the most important city in Brazil. And this exhibition traces its history in three different stages. First of all it looks at the origins and the design of the museum, then at its modernisation which took place at a time when Rio de Janeiro itself was changing. Finally it looks at the museum's current role, its educational and cultural role, while focusing on the future of the Brazilian cultural landscape.
