Summary note:
From Valongo to Favela: imaginary and periphery arises from the curation of the namesake of Clarissa Diniz and Rafael Cardoso and approaches the neighborhood around MAR, the port area of Rio de Janeiro, when dealing with its imaginary and its representations through time in art, photography, architecture. Exhibition and catalog are guided by two historical landmarks: the first is the Cais do Valongo, the world's largest slave-trading depot in the 19th century. The Valongo therefore demarcates the tragedy of slavery and the African diaspora. The second addresses the emergence of the favela as the most obvious feature of the new exclusion of the freedmen, still under the slave-holding and post-colonial power. With texts by Rafael Cardoso, Roberto Conduru, Romulo Costa Mattos, Nataraj Trinta and Clarissa Diniz.
