One of the best known of Brazil's old-school singer-songwriters, Gilberto Gil is celebrating his 70th birthday in a grand way. Gil, a founder of Tropicalismo, Brazil's hugely important musical movement, which began in the late-1960s, also served as Minister of Culture under former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

A sign of his influential presence within Brazilian culture, GIL70 is an exhibition based entirely on the musician's life and works, with a twist – it features works by 28 artists including photos, sculptures, paintings, visual poems, graffiti, and interactive installations, all inspired by him and his music. Look out, too, for related works by Onesto and other 15 graffiti artists from the Projeto Quixote, on the building's exterior. The exhibition will also include texts by some of Gil’s fellow musicians and friends, including Caetano Veloso and Arnaldo Antunes, as well as the chance to appreciate some of Gil’s songs.
