Bloomberg Funds Pinacoteca de São Paulo Virtual Tour of OSGEMEOS

/PRNewswire/ — Bloomberg today announced that art lovers around the world can now experience a panoramic digital tour of the exhibit, “OSGEMEOS: Secrets” via Brazil’s Pinacoteca de São Paulo’s website.

The exhibition presents the work of identical twin brothers and street artists Otávio and Gustavo Pandolfo, whose imagination inspired by hip-hop, break dancing and Brazilian Folk Art. Pinacoteca opened the exhibition in March 2020, but has had to close in-person visits intermittently over the past six months due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The virtual tour provides the general public an opportunity to view the artworks even with the uncertainty of the reopening of the museum.

Bloomberg Corporate Philanthropy is sponsoring the virtual experience to the exhibit, which features more than 1,000 items by  the duo including paintings, sculptures, drawings and notebooks, some that have never been seen before in Brazil. The online tour includes views throughout the museum’s galleries and an exclusive video of the curator and general director at Pinacoteca in Portuguese with English subtitles. The digital experience is available to anyone globally via the site.  

“At Bloomberg, we believe that art can inspire and make a lasting positive impact on communities,” said Geraldo Coelho, Bloomberg Head of Latin American sales. “We use innovative global technology to address unmet needs and to create dynamic cultural experiences for our employess, clients and partners in LatAm, as well as to enhance lives around the world.”

“OSGEMEOS: Secrets is a very special exhibition to Pinacoteca de São Paulo and the artists. It celebrates the comeback of Gustavio and Otávio Pandolfo to Pinacoteca. It was in this very museum that, at age 9, they both participated in an educational art workshop that was fundamental to the twins’ artistic development. This exhibition also reaffirms the importance of art and culture in these difficult times of pandemic”.
Jochen Volz – Exhibition Curator and General Director at Pinacoteca de São Paulo.
