A Gentil Carioca celebrates nine years at the forefront of the carioca contemporary art scene with a show from Bahia-born sculptor and video artist José Bento. Two huge installations playing with both the internal and external architecture of the gallery will occupy the main rooms, the second of which will be divided by its wood and metal occupant, the other half playing host to works from across Bento's near twenty-year career, including several never previously shown in public. Outside, the Parede Gentil, the gallery's coveted external wall regularly given over to a new artist to let loose on, features the work of Maria Nepomuceno until 17 November.
