From 2005 to 2009, I was a member of a Rio de Janeiro-based art collective Grupo DOC: Isabel Löfgren, Mauro Bandeira, Marco Antonio Portela, and Patricia Gouvêa.
The collective organized exhibitions around specific themes in an effort to increase young artist’s visibility in an alternative art circuit. At that time in Rio de Janeiro, many artists were self-organizing and creating their own exhibition opportunities outside of the mainstream commercial and institutional circuits. We worked together on a series of collaborative exhibition projects:
A highly portable and collaborative exhibition where no work can be larger than 10x10x10 cm. Rio de Janeiro (2005), São Paulo (2005), Curitiba (2005), Belo Horizonte (2006), Vitória (2006), Brazil; Bogotá, Colombia (2006); Stockholm, Sweden (2009) See more

In Rio de Janeiro, people who live in the hillside ‘favelas’ claim they live closer to heaven. We proposed artists to work with ‘Clouds’ in a gallery high up on the hills of a favela, a light theme to ease the tough life up there. Galeria Meninos de Luz, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2008). See more
In a recession-ridden world completely out of our control and aligned with the Brazilian distrust in technical reason and logic, we decided to invite artists to make an “art-offering” as a way to purge the evil eye from our times. Galeria do Ateliê da Imagem, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2009). See more
