Residents of the street

The artist Antonio Miranda made sculptures that reproduce "residents of the street" and exposing it in Avenida Paulista. On 26/01 a dummy representing a "collector of paper" made by resin was displayed in front of the Trianon with a boy. This representation shows a problem that nobody wants to see. Points to a misery that is in the streets of Sao Paulo and everyone ignores. First he tried to display at the free space under the MASP's Museum, but the security guards banned. Then he took out the pieces while some true beggars were seeing.

The sculptures are part of the Collective exhibition Memórias do Futuro e os Traços da Arte, at the Galeria Café, in Vila Olympia, until the January 25th.
