It’s been thirty years since the unveiling of SESC Pompeia, the jewel in the crown of SP’s string of SESCs – subsidised, highly egalitarian centres for culture and sport. The Pompeia branch was one of the masterpieces created by Lina Bo Bardi (1914-1992), the Italian architect who moved to Brazil in 1946 and who also created the stunning MASP art museum, on Avenida Paulista.

SESC Pompeia celebrates with an exhibition of historical films and images, spanning the complex’s construction to its many uses over the last three decades. Meanwhile, the Glass House (‘Casa de Vidro’) – the elegant, Modernist home Bo Bardi built for herself and her husband Pietro Maria Bardi, the MASP’s curator – has been closed for some time, but is now open for the second installment in an ongoing, evolving art exhibition, ‘The Insides are on the Outside’.

The site-specific show takes the house as its inspiration and features art by the likes of Cildo Meireles and Cinthia Marcelle. Larger artworks by Ernesto Neto and Dan Graham will be housed at SESC Pompeia.

'The Insides are on the Outside' is on at SESC Pompeia Rua Clélia 93, Perdizes (3871 7700/ and at the Casa de Vidro, Rua General Almério de Moura 200, Morumbi (3744 9902/
