The Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil RJ [Bank of Brazil Cultural Center in Rio de Janeiro] (CCBB-RJ) opens from May 17 onwards the exhibition Yes, Nós Temos Bikini, celebrating seven decades of the garment’s existence and development through history.

Curated by Lilian Pacce, the exhibition’s goal is, in addition to display an historical panorama of this swimsuit, to promote a dialogue with contemporary art.

The show is planned in five sections in which the bridge between the bikini’s history and other contemporary issues is established. Artists Éder Santos (Belo Horizonte, 1960) , Rochelle Costi (Caxias do Sul, 1961) and photographer Thomaz Farkas (Hungrie, 1924) are part of  Territorios e Modos [Territories and Customs], a section which explores the vicinities and behaviour springing from this imagery. 

The exhibition runs until July 10. For more information, please visit the institution's website.
