Letters to the Mayor: São Paulo displays letters written by architects, artist, curators and other practitioners to the city mayor, right before the municipal elections.


Pivô Art and Research and Storefront for Art and Architecture present the exhibition Letters to the Mayor: São Paulo, curated by the architects Bruno de Almeida and Fernando Falcon.

The exhibition is part of a larger project conceived by Storefront for Art and Architecture, consisting of an itinerant show that already took place in cities such as New York (USA), Athens (Greece), Bogota (Colombia), Buenos Aires (Argentina), Panama City (Panama), Mexico City (Mexico), Taipei (Taiwan), among others. In each of these cities the exhibition featured a set of letters written by fifty local architects to their Mayor, expressing their ideas opinions and desires for the city.

São Paulo’s edition will strategically take place during the electoral campaigns for the Municipality of São Paulo. The letters will be exhibited at Pivô Art and Research, in the Copan building at the heart of the city, in a free exhibition accompanied by an intense program of conversations, round-tables and lectures that will take place during August. Afterwards all the exhibited letters will be sent to the Mayor’s office.

By bringing a set of relevant voices to the public awareness and to the agendas and desks of the potential mayors, the exhibition intends to intensify the discussion about the city at a crucial time for its future and for its citizens, amidst a complex political and economic moment for the country.

The group of invited architects and institutions offers a varied outline of the nuances that the architectural discipline can contain, including both consecrated and emerging names from fields such as the projectual, academic, theoretical, critical, artistic and curatorial.
