NO OLHO DA RUA, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Centro Municipal de Arte Hélio Oiticica
Hélio Oiticica Municipal Art Centre, August 1st - 19th September.

The No Olho da Rua Collective, that last surfaced at the Photo Bienial in Brighton nearly 3 years ago, is participating in the group show Album de Familia curated by Daniella Geo at the Centro Municipal de Arte Hélio Oiticica in Rio de Janeiro. A brand new, 16 page large format No Olho da Rua newspaper is featured and is available free to gallery visitors and NODR flyposters are posted in the surrounding streets.

The rest of the exhibition features a host of well known artists including, Candice Breitz, Bill Viola, Gillian Wearing, Rosangela Renno and Richard Billingham, to name but a few, and I believe a catalogue will be published soon.
