Three municipal libraries in São Paulo city are hosting the exhibition Ideograms Sonoros: novos caminhos entre as linguagens (“Sound Ideograms: new paths between languages”), from Monday (Aug 15) to September 30, featuring 27 works and poems by artist and journalist Priscila Asche as well as original music by composer Fabio Guimarães.

The installations will be displayed at the municipal public libraries Alceu Amoroso Lima, Viriato Corrêa, and Affonso Taunay.

The exhibition seeks to expand the everyday perception of writing, reading, and music as a way to encourage the exercise of freedom of expression, thought, and imagination through technology as a tool to interweave different languages and provide the public with an immersive experience including visual, sound, and literary art.

The choice to have the exhibition in libraries was based on the idea that the space is historically linked to the right to education, knowledge, learning, and information. “Furthermore, the project invites visitors to rethink the use of these spaces since the frequency of young people in libraries is constantly on the wane,” a note from São Paulo’s Culture Secretariat reads.

The Alceu Amoroso Lima Municipal Public Library is located at Henrique Schaumann street, 777, Pinheiros district, open from from 10 am to 7 pm Monday to Friday and from 10 am to 5 pm on Saturdays; the Viriato Corrêa Municipal Public Library is located at Sena Madureira street, 298, Vila Mariana district, open from from 10 am to 7 pm Monday to Friday and from 10 am to 5 pm on Saturdays; and the Affonso Taunay Municipal Public Library can be reached at Taquari street, 549, Mooca district, open from 8am to 5pm from Monday to Friday and from 10 am to 5 pm on Saturdays.

Admission is free of charge at all three libraries.
