    Curated by video artist Moana Mayall, creator of the event, VIDE URBE proposes urban public space as an open experiment of artistic appreciation, through contemporary video art. "This is the first experience but every edition of the show we explore how to support and interface skins over-exposed city: its architecture, reliefs and textures themselves, since their large concrete surfaces, to the interference generated by multisensory their daily lives ", defines Moana.

    In this first edition, sponsored by Oi, the Secretary of State Culture and cultural support of Oi Futuro, Moana invited four artists whose works will expand the scale of the support of the city. Over one week, artists Eder Santos, Simone Michelin, Chico and John Penoni Jofilsan occupy, with video art of his own, gables and facades located between the South Zone, Central and North Zone of Rio. This is a shift neutral space of the gallery to the street: "An action anti monotony, full of drives, and also contingency of history," says the curator.

    VIDE URBE comes to inventing new topographies possible for the videographic projection of contemporary art. "In art and cause it to reconnect the various fields, such as architecture and urban planning, as well as his own place in the world disturbing its borders and keeping alive the possibility of charm, and the disruption of the unusual" concludes Moana Mayall .

    VIDE URBE Workshops

    Each head, a world. In each eye, a town. The vision of a single city if it does then the infinite points of view. VIDE URBE, in Latin, means "to see the city" as you see her? This guide is the theme of the workshop VIDE URBE, which will include the artistic production of newly graduated students in Oi Kabum School of Art and Technology. Personal or shared experiences from the participants' own daily lives and their paths to the river water will be raw material for creating videos that will be recombined live in collective projections that will be part of the week VIDE URBE.

    The idea is that participants recreate their own "metropolis" uniting their looks in a collective work and personal experiment. Throughout the workshops will also be presented an overview of video art, with special focus on works by artists who worked in the area of ​​the city and projections in public space. Produced videos, and other types of personal records about the town can also compose our multimedia cartography of Rio, the site of the show VIDE URBE, which will be open to receive contributions from Internet users.
