To its credit, the Pinocoteca does not make the mistake of trying to be an encyclopedic art museum, instead focusing squarely on Brazilian art. Nevertheless it is rigidly traditional in its approach, with chronologically hung galleries of permanent collection and modest, unchallenging, temporary exhibits. The negative aspects of hidebound curation is however is partially offset by an education department which has livened up each gallery with its own exhibits that are 'in dialogue' with the hanging art. Between the two, I emerged with a considerable appreciation for Brazilian art and a bit of knowledge of some of its deeper themes. A worthwhile museum.
