Damien Ortega y the great Meyer Vaisman
the spaces starts without any architectural intervention, since the works themselves offer a brief panorama of Model Kits: The Favela, The City, the Industry, the Car, the Metaphysical, the Labyrinth.

 containing Leonnilsons' Sua montanha interior protetora and 3 more fantastic works

from a little window you can see Valeska Soares

and a great piece by Carla Zachagnini that involves a series of stamps made from texts on Latin America, which have appeared in the local press. Everybody at Musac will use these stamps over the coming months to infiltrate the piece out to the world.
