Published on the occasion of the exhibition held at the Museu Afro Brasil in Sao Paulo, from January to August 2022.
The exhibition "Arqueologia Amorosa de São Paulo", was inaugurated on the day the city of São Paulo celebrated its 468 years of existence. The event is part of the anniversary program of the Paulista capital. Emanoel Araujo, throughout his five decades of life in São Paulo, never stopped honoring her on her birthday. The last of a series of exhibitions was dedicated to the metropolis. This publication records the exhibition and also consolidates a number of other exhibitions held in previous years that have told the history of the city from different angles. The exhibition talks about the many artistic, social, cultural aspects and diverse perspectives of this great metropolis, through photos, manuscripts, objects, photographs and design, by renowned artists, such as Lina Bo Bardi, Paulo Mendes da Rocha, Flavio de Carvalho, Geraldo de Barros, Zanini Caldas, among others. The exhibition scours the memory of the capital of São Paulo, bringing to light characters from the artistic life, public works of great architects since Ramos de Azevedo, the memory of old carnivals on Avenida Paulista and the Ranchos blocks on the periphery. The city's great dressmaker, Maria Adelaide da Silva and her correspondence with women's fashion of the twenties, is also portrayed through documents coming directly from Paris, sketch proposals and her portrait painted by the great artist of the time, Jacques Leclerc, in 1926. The exhibition also includes objects from the Constitutionalist Revolution of 1932, as well as great souvenirs from the Fourth Centenary and the construction of Ibirapuera Park, such as the Second International Biennial, where Pablo Picasso's Guernica took place. An installation shows fragments of a bourgeois house, in a reference to the great residences on Avenida Paulista, arising from the riches of coffee. One of the highlights is a grand view of Várzea do Carmo, a technological manipulation by the artist Floro Freire, which presents a new vision of the 19th century landscape by Militão Augusto de Azevedo. On the same date, the museum begins the homage to Mário de Andrade, as part of the celebration of the Hundred Years of the Week of Modern Art, with the opening of the exhibition Father Jesuíno do Monte Carmelo in the eyes of Mario de Andradeʺ. The exhibition brings to the Afro Brasil Museum great paintings from the churches of the cities of Itu and São Paulo, where the artist priest exercised, with primacy, his craft as a painter, musician and composer. The research on the paintings of churches and convents in the city of Itu was one of the last carried out by Mário de Andrade, whose gaze turned to these artists of the 18th and 19th centuries. This will be the largest retrospective on the works of Father Jesuíno do Monte Carmelo. The exhibition features 27 large works by Jesuíno, many of them shown for the first time, and is curated by Dr. Maria Silvia Barsalini and Dr. Emerson Ribeiro, and collaboration of the Afro Brasil Museum team.
