Brand new Museum will be opened this Sunday at Ibirapuera Park. Check it out!

This Sunday (April 11th), the Ibirapuera park will receive a brand new museum in its internal area.

The "Brazilian Pavilion of Cultures" will be in the old "Engenheiro Armando Arruda Pereira," building with 11 thousand square meters designed by Oscar Niemeyer in the 1950s. It was there that the first Biennial took place in 1953 before becoming the building that hosted the Prodam (Data Processing Company of São Paulo).

The building is now a museum again and it hosts the exhibition “Puras Misturas” (Pure Blends), where visitors can experience part of the museum - it includes pieces of high art, popular and indigenous acquired by the Municipal Culture Department and also from several other public collections.

Anxious to celebrate the richness and the diversity of the Brazilian Culture, the exhibition aims to show the many forms of artistic creation produced in different times and places in the country. Organized into four modules, it brings works by artists like: Lina Bo Bardi, Bispo do Rosario, Di Cavalcanti, Victor Brecheret and anonymous people from indigenous tribes. Don't miss it!
