The weekend was unusually fun, since I turned the intense summer Saturday into a visit to Sesc Belenzinho, at Zona Leste, Sao Paulo. The exhibit lasts until this Tuesday an is called Move!, which unites fashion and art on half a dozen different activities that make the viewers interact with artists, designers and their pieces.
Unfortunately, the number of people participating on each activity is limited, and therefore, I found myself heading to the exhibit 3 hours before it started just so I could get a spot on one of the activities. It worked! I had the chance to sew a handmade dress designed by Pedro Lourenco and made on a fabric from a brazilian street artist. Moreover, I could talk to the exhibit curator, a NYC photographer and young artists that both visited and worked there. Hope you enjoy the pictures!
