Yesterday afternoon I took the opportunity of being in Rio’s downtown surroundings and paid a visit to Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil (CCBB).
CCBB is a great Cultural Center with exhibition rooms, theaters, a library, cinema, and a video room. There is always a big exhibition there and this time it is Cai-Guo-Qiang- Peasant Da Vincis!
It was the first time I saw the art of the multi-talented chinese artist Cai-Guo-Qiang and I got really delighted with his work. In this exhibition Cai shows not only his own art, but he presents the stories of peasant inventors from all over China.
Besides the big installation in CCBB’s rotunda, what impressed me most were the videos showing how he uses gunpowder in some of his drawings.
If you have the chance of seeing this exhibition, don’t miss it! It is really worth seeing!
