Museu de Arte Contemporânea

It was a mild day in May, 1991 I accompanied the architect Oscar Niemeyer and Mayor Jorge Roberto Silveira, searching the coastline a proper Museum of Contemporary Art in Niteroi ground. But along the way, in the viewpoint of Boa Viagem, it was evident that fate had struck. There would be the museum still had no form, but was born with a vocation to be invincible.

The mayor, who was not half measures, commissioned me to invite Oscar Niemeyer, to see if he wanted to make a contemporary art museum in Niteroi. Anna Maria and I went to talk to Oscar. All the little story of the five years following, incidentally, is marked by this magical and feminine presence: a rare and sensitive intuition, its share was as constant and discrete skill that seems implicit, and it is time to register. Because John and Sylvia Sattamini enter the MAC with the collection, and its intelligent generosity already integrates with the museum's success. And critics and curators, believers next time, have a lifetime to cheer him up.
