Galeria Pilar has the honor of presenting the exhibit Collection of Museums, by Leonardo Finotti, starting June 8, 2017. There will be shown 31 unpublished black and white photographs of various formats made in Switzerland, Portugal, Japan, the USA and Brazil, among other places. The critical text was written by Afonso Luz.

Finotti has established himself in the select group of the best names in architecture photography in Brazil and worldwide. Focusing on Europe and Latin America, he gathered an extremely important and certainly unique collection.

The photos displayed in Galeria Pilar flirt with a constitutive look at today’s museums, without, however, incorporating their pop self-image. In his photographs, Finotti captures the drawn lines and catches the silhouettes and plans, plants and corporal paths, shadows and roughness of these buildings that have become icons of contemporary culture.

Finotti is a skilled curator of architecture and urbanity, a delicate ethnologist who captures the anthropological variations of walls and curtains, an enthusiast of the powerful nature that consumes human edifices: all this stands out in the immensely unique beauty of each of the photos.

He has works in important collections such as MoMA (NY, USA), Carnegie Museum (Pittsburgh, USA), MOT (Tokyo, Japan), Buendner Kunstmuseum (Chur, Switzerland), EDP Foundation (Lisbon, Portugal) and Itaú Cultural (São Paulo, Brazil), among others.
