“Time is not linear, it is a marvellous entanglement in which, at any moment, ends can be chosen and solutions invented, without beginning or end.” –Lina Bo Bardi

MAXXI / Museum of 21st Century Art in Rome presents Lina Bo Bardi – A Marvellous Entanglement, an exciting tribute by the English artist and filmmaker Isaac Julien to the great Italian-Brazilian architect. It is an impressive nine-channel video installation, accompanied by a photographic series, filmed in several locations in Brazil, including the Sao Paulo Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art in Bahia and the Teatro Gregario de Matos in Salvador.

The title is a quote taken from one of the most well-known and evocative passages of Lina Bo Bardi’s letters, “Time is not linear, it is a marvellous entanglement in which, at any moment, ends can be chosen and solutions invented, without beginning or end.” Here it is interpreted by two of the greatest actresses of Brazilian cinema and theatre, Fernanda Montenegro and her daughter Fernanda Torres.
