FB gallery is pleased to present Metropole Remix, the first exhibition by Brazilian artist Alê Souto in New York.
Metropole Remix recreates an imaginary city inspired by the book “Invisible Cities” by Italo Calvino. The exhibition consist of a mural encompassing the whole first floor of the gallery, four big scale canvases, 10 original prints, a series of drawings (Suburbio remix), and three site specific installations. Alê Souto’s metropolis raises issues which are common of any great world city: Loneliness, mobility, social divide and how technology impacts the urban and human landscape.
Since the start of his artistic career in 2005, Alê Souto has participated in many group exhibitions in Brazil, and his work has been shown in six solo exhibitions in Mexico and Brazil. He also regularly intervenes in the street and creates site specific installations and performances in urban centers, such as No Subúrbio Vivo, in the suburbs of Rio (2011) and Snail Man performed in several Mexican cities and Buenos Aires (Argentina) in 2010.
