Graphos: Brasil gets into the swing of ArtRio with the opening of Fio Condutor, a show uniting 30 works by 17 contemporary artists both from Brazil and abroad. Many have been created especially for the show or, as in the case of Waltercio Caldas' 'O Sorriso da Matemática', only rarely displayed in public. Portuguese artist Susana Anágua's installation 'Ir(reversible) Systems' comes direct from a recent show in Marseille, however, with all 3,000 metres of cotton line still intact. The Frenchman Mr Brainwash also joins the likes of homegrown talent Jorge Fonseca and Vik Muniz for an eclectic charge through the contemporary scene.
