Fábio Baroli: GOLIATH
• Days with event
Opening: Thu, Feb 09, 19:00
Venue: frei_raum Q21 exhibition space
The Brazilian visual artist Fábio Baroli uses painting as a support to develop his poetic language, which deals with the concepts of voyeurism and eroticism, vernacularism and children´s imaginary world. Although his works depict scenes from the life of inhabitants of the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais (Brazil), its themes are universal and far-reaching. During his stay in Vienna in February 2017, Fábio Baroli will be showing in two distinct exhibitions at MuseumsQuartier.
Opening on February 9th, the exhibition Goliath will bring to Europe two series of oil paintings produced between 2012 and now, which depict children in conflict situations with water guns replacing real weapons.
Curated by Pedro Henrique de Melo the exhibition located at frei_raum Q21 exhibition space aims at fomenting a discussion around the plight of children in armed conflicts; as the exhibition’s title alludes to, an unfair battle between the children and such violent environment.
