EXTENSION to the exhibition catalog. From p. 101: 'This book serves as an important part of the curatorial proposal for the Panorama of Brazilian Art 2001. Some artists invited to participate in the show are present only in this book and not in the exhibition space. Moreover, this seemed the most appropriate way to present some special insertions that we think fundamental to our project. In preparing a book that works as an extension of the exhibition -that is, a publication where propositions materialized just for this media-we intend to also establish a continuity of the issues addressed in the museum, activating new interfaces through a network of circuits given by the spectators. ' Paul Reis, Ricardo Basbaum and Ricardo Resende. (Inventory #: 129995)
