The actress and photographer, Christiana Guinle, will start a public exhibition in Rio de Janeiro. The goal is to create new awareness of social issues, and to stimulate community involvement - spatial sights of a city have the power to shape interactions and create new experiences. This power is utilized by urban interventions through the works created by the artists. Christiana Guinle, with her questioning look, seeks to bring to the public space works that make you think about current social issues in Brazilian society.
Around 50 streets and places will be target with wheat paste poster-bomber. From MAR (Museu de Arte do Rio) to PROJAC studios, a Google Map updated daily. The public is invited to intervene in the works of Christiana Guinle, who will leave the environment of the art gallery to the streets of the city of Rio de Janeiro.

On Urban Intervention: Art intervention is an interaction with a previously existing artwork, audience, venue/space or situation. It has the auspice of conceptual art and is commonly a form of performance art. It has also been made much use of by the Stuckists to affect perceptions of other artwork which they oppose, and as a protest against an existing intervention. Intervention can also refer to art which enters a situation outside the art world in an attempt to change the existing conditions there. For example, intervention art may attempt to change economic or political situations, or may attempt to make people aware of a condition that they previously had no knowledge of. Since these goals mean that intervention art necessarily addresses and engages with the public, some artists call their work "public interventions". Source: Wikipedia.
