Marcelo Cidade

With a work that is often informal and subversive, Marcelo Cidade (São Paulo, 1979) puts the ideals and paradigms of modernist architecture into question. Appropriating urban spaces, the artist creates new languages and tampers with our pre-conceived notions of space. Exposing consolidated social relationships and values, his work produces a counter current, an “aesthetic of resistance” that examines multifaceted social conflicts, transporting symbols and situations from the street into spaces dedicated to the development of art.
