Centro Municipal de Arte Hélio Oiticica

Public institution dedicated to the promotion of contemporary art, member of the Municipal Secretary of Culture of the city of Rio de Janeiro. The current management has the objective of making peripheral artists visible to the history of art, as well as democratizing access to the public. Their actions are developed from two lines: CMAHO research projects and occupation notices. Both generate a diverse program of exhibitions, cinema, shows, courses, workshops, lectures and seminars, as well as publications of the Agaó publishing line.

The collection consists of two installations of Richard Serra (the artist's only permanent work in Latin America, produced at the Rio Rounds exhibition in 1997), documentation on the institution's history, and 2,000 books and publications on contemporary art. Inaugurated in 1996, it was reference until 2009 to house works by Hélio Oiticica (1937 - 1980) in agreement with the HO Project, besides exposing important national and foreign artists of contemporary art as Mira Schendel, Iole de Freitas, Sônia Andrade, Lygia Pape, Antonio Manuel, Daniel Buren, Luciano Fabro, Tehching Tsieh, among others.

Bitamine Faktoria’s Statement
OPEN CALLS ARE SUSPENDED

Due to the current state of alarm ordered by the Spanish Government to face the health crisis caused by the Covid-19, Bitamine Faktoria suspends all open calls and leaves applications on hold.

We hope to reopen the reception of applications once this exceptional period has ended, which forces us to confine ourselves and prevents us from regular work. Applications received to date will be taken into account when the process restarts.

Thank you all for your understanding. Take care of yourself and your family (in the broadest sense). Let us all take care of ourselves.
