the exhibition brought together, in an unprecedented way, seventy years of visual production by the artist, humorist, playwright and journalist millôr fernandes. his drawings, from self-portraits to the relentless critique of Brazilian life, created mainly to be published in the press, reveal the strength and complexity of a body of work fundamental to brazilian art.  

next to the original artworks, in which it was possible to see millôr’s mode of operation, the space ambience was created by magnifications of his drawings, glued to the wall like street posters.
