Between March 7 and May 1, 2024, Carpenters Workshop Gallery presents Turning Tides: Designing a Modern Brazil, an exhibition tracing 75 years of Brazilian design. Displaying masterpieces from the 1940s up until the present day, the works on show reveal the varying visions and influences that went on to inform the framework for modern Brazilian life. After the Second World War, the country experienced rapid economic growth and industrialization. Not only was there an unavoidable sense of hope and prosperity prevailing in the country, but it also hosted the World Cup games, and welcomed the arrival of new materials and technologies. This infused Brazilian design, architecture and the home structure with the aesthetic vibrancy of modernism, particularly in cities like Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. In the 60s, President Juscelino Kubitschek transferred the capital from Rio de Janeiro to Brasília to promote its growth through its development policy and motto: 50 years in 5.  A flourishing dynamic between furniture, art, and the landscape started to bloom.
