Located in downtown São Paulo, the Estação Pinacoteca (Pina_Estação) is one of Latin America’s most important museums. It is in an early-20th century brick building, with large, arching windows, located in front of a lovely park. Today, the exposed brick structure has modern walkways that take visitors to different galleries. The permanent collection is mostly Brazilian artists, featuring different styles and mediums, from paintings, to statues, to graphic art. Rotating exhibitions range in theme, from Afro-Brazilian art, to modernism, sculpture and more. The space is also home to shows and concerts.
The buildings hold a lot of history; it was once used by the military dictatorship as the offices of the Political and Social Order Department, which suppressed political and social movements. Many of Brazil’s political activists of the 60s, 70s, and 80s were detained there. There’s a permanent exhibition at the Pinacoteca called the Resistance Memorial, which uses personal testimonies, photographs, preserved jail cells of political prisoners, and other pieces of history to remember this difficult time in Brazilian history.
