O que é este blog?

Este blog trata basicamente de ideias, se possível inteligentes, para pessoas inteligentes. Ele também se ocupa de ideias aplicadas à política, em especial à política econômica. Ele constitui uma tentativa de manter um pensamento crítico e independente sobre livros, sobre questões culturais em geral, focando numa discussão bem informada sobre temas de relações internacionais e de política externa do Brasil.

Welcome back!The Met Fifth Avenue opens today.
On April 13, 1870, The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded. It had no building and not a single work of art, but it did have a mission: to expand the cultural landscape of New York City.

Now, after an unprecedented five-month closure, our doors are open. To protect our staff and our visitors, we have worked closely with state, city, and public health leaders to develop comprehensive social-distancing measures. Use our website to easily purchase or reserve timed tickets for your visit.

We look forward to seeing you in the galleries, where 5,000 years of art and creativity—on view across our two-million-square-foot building—can once again provide solace, inspiration, and joy. 
New exhibitions
Making The Met, 1870–2020
August 29, 2020–January 3, 2021
The Met Fifth Avenue
The signature exhibition of The Met's 150th-anniversary year takes visitors on an immersive, thought-provoking journey through the history of one of the world's preeminent cultural institutions. Making The Met, 1870–2020 features more than 250 superlative works of art of nearly every type, from visitor favorites to fragile treasures that can only be displayed from time to time. Organized around transformational moments in the evolution of the Museum's collection, buildings, and ambitions, the exhibition reveals the visionary figures and cultural forces that propelled The Met in new directions since its founding. Rarely seen archival photographs, engaging digital features, and stories of both behind-the-scenes work and the Museum's community outreach enhance this unique experience.
The Roof Garden Commission: Héctor Zamora, Lattice Detour
August 29–December 7, 2020
The Met Fifth Avenue
Mexican artist Héctor Zamora (born 1974) has created a site-specific work for The Met's Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. For The Roof Garden Commission: Héctor Zamora, Lattice Detour, the artist invites us to reconsider the panoramic view of the surrounding Manhattan skyline and the implications of obstruction and permeability within a social space by utilizing one of the defining symbols of our time: the wall.

Jacob Lawrence: The American Struggle
August 29–November 1, 2020
The Met Fifth Avenue
Jacob Lawrence: The American Struggle will present a striking and little-known series of paintings by the esteemed American modernist Jacob Lawrence titled Struggle: From the History of the American People (1954–56). The exhibition marks the first time in more than half a century that the powerful multi-paneled series is being reunited. The series reveals the artist's prescient visual reckoning with the nation's complex history through iconic and folkloric narratives.
