Praça Coronel Eugênio Franco, Copacabana

Telephone (21) 2287 3781

As Copacabana fills with faithful for the Jornada Mundial de Juventude and a visit from the Pope, the famous fort at its southern tip plays host to a new exhibition celebrating the city's iconic Cristo Redentor statue. The history of the 80 year-old art-deco triumph is told via interactive displays that recreate the texture of Heitor da Silva Costa's creation from the hands to the head, revealing the intricate details that are invariably overlooked when viewed from afar.

Even more interesting are digital versions of the newspapers and magazines released around the 1931 inauguration, revealing the public's awe of the project first hand. From the creative folk Super Uber, responsible for tech installations used in such diverse places as New York's Guggenheim Museum (the 'Free City' installation), Rio's 'Minha Porto Maravilha' event, and even at the UN for the Beyonce music video 'I Was Here', De Braços Abertos promises to do justice to the spirit of the original vision.
