Following blockbuster exhibitions last year at SESC Belenzinho, SESC Pompéia and the Pinacoteca, as part of the SESC_Videobrasil festival, the star Danish artist is back for another big hitter. The show is a collaboration between Fortes Vilaça and Galeria Luisa Strina, and takes place at both simultaneously.
Two large installations take over the former’s newly renovated second space, Galpão Fortes Vilaça, mixing darkness with light and moving images, while at Luisa Strina, the artist promises ‘experimental machines’. Whatever it all means, Eliasson is one of those ‘if you only see one show’ kind of grandstanding, inspiring artists, and always well worth a look.

Galeria Luisa Strina. Rua Padre João Manuel 755, Jardim Paulista (3088 2471/galerialuisastrina.com.br). Open 10am-7pm Tue-Fri; 10am-5pm Sat.
