hey the gang’s in São Paulo!

After a two-month-long run in Brasilia, Cai Guo-Qiang: Da Vincis do Povo moves onto São Paulo.  The exhibition is scheduled to open at both Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil and Museu dos Correios on April 20, before heading to its final stop in Rio de Janeiro in August.

Some images from the installation process thus far for your viewing pleasure.

Installation of Fairytale can only happen between 11 pm - 5 am, as that is the only time the pedestrian-only walkway can be closed.  At 2 am, we were visited by a local drunk.  He offered us a cigarette.  We politely declined.  Photo by Wen-You Cai, courtesy Cai Studio.

Upcoming: Mystery Circle in Los Angeles

On Saturday, March 3, Cai exploded a few demos on the facade of the Geffen Contemporary in Los Angeles for the upcoming explosion event Mystery Circle.  The four demos, at a fraction of the size of the anticipated explosion for April 7, ended up settling off a few car alarms and peppering the adjacent parking lot with expended rockets.
