BFA Boatos São Paulo 11/27/2014 – 01/31/2015

The group show “A paz entre os animais” lies on the assumption that war is what happens when language fails. The display attempts indeed at rethinking the exhibition as a scenario of dispute rather than dialogue, unsteadiness rather than systematization, deception rather than endorsement. “A paz entre os animais” presents the work of eleven artists
