Da Vincis do Povo is on the final leg of its three-city tour around Brazil. The exhibition will open in Rio de Janeiro at both the Centro Cultural Banco de Brasil and the Centro Cultural Correiros on August 6 and runs until September 23. With the installation schedule coinciding with World Youth Day and the Pope’s arrival, both Cai and studio staff have been negotiating the crowds to get to and from the exhibition space.
Here’s what the staff has been up to for the past week:
To power through preparations for the exhibition, we’ve been running on sugar. In Rio de Janeiro, the team has been indulging in local cakes. Meanwhile at Cai Studio in New York, we’re eating homemade blackberry pie.
