This event has finished

Marking the one-year anniversary of the Museu da Diversidade – which is less museum and more bare-bones temporary exhibition space, inside República Metrô station – the photo exhibition 'Crisálidas' (‘pupae’) comprises a series of portraits of transgender people, shot by Madalena Schwartz (1921-1993). She was a Hungarian immigrant to São Paulo who became fascinated by the eccentricity of her subjects during the city’s edgy 1970s. Schwartz took many of the photos in her own apartment in the iconic Copan building, lending a certain intimacy to the images.
