Special project launch: The secret notebook of Cândido Portinari 🎨

The55Project, together with the Portinari Institute, brings the stylist Ronaldo Fraga and the ballerina Ana Botafogo to promote the connection between art and fashion, on May 16 to 18, at Miami Ironside.

All the project elements revolve around what the poet Carlos Drummond de Andrade defines as the “Portinari Universe”. It will be three days of dynamic activities – a fashion show, documentaries, art talks, public schools’ children’s’ workshops with activities in Portuguese – all these in a set design inspired by Portinari’s work. The event will also include a presentation from the Miami City Ballet inspired by the work “Guerra e Paz” as a tribute to the Brazilian ballerina Ana Botafogo.
