Internationally known for his experiments with long exposure techniques, Michael Wesely currently has works at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMa), among other relevant collections. Last year, during the impeachment vote of President Dilma Rousseff, he produced records that overlapped more than seven hours of popular movement on the streets of São Paulo and were selected to integrate this year's Sorocaba Frestas Trienal de Arte.
In his solo show at Casa Nova Arte, the German artist displays a 12-piece clip that compiles a panorama of different moments in his career.
