Ethnograffiti Intalation
An installation with the projection of murals as part of the sociocultural project of the Garibaldi Foundation – ” Ethnograffiti” Rio Branco – Amazonia, Brazil,

The exhibition gives visibility to more than 50 graffiti that invoke the concept of “florestania”, a term used in Acre as a government program that translates forest with citizenship. Murals are the result of spontaneous occupations and specific projects. Living the forest in the city through visual arts is a way of celebrating the richness of the surrounding nature and enhancing its icons.

An action, resulting from the convention signed recently in Brussels, with the director of the foundation, Sérgio de Carvalho.

The design and assembly of the project is the result of the collective collaboration with the residents: Alex Cepile, Aline Yasmin Dalvi, Maria João Flôxo and Monica Musoni.

The opening is part of the activities planned in the context of the open day of SeeU temporary occupation project for the public, which takes place in the former Gendarmarie Fritz Toussaint barracks, of which 25,000 m2 are devoted entirely to culture, education, sustainability and innovation.

We count on your presence!
