The collective exhibition "Afro-Atlantic Stories" brings together, in an unprecedented initiative, two of the main cultural institutions of São Paulo: the Tomie Ohtake Institute and the MASP - São Paulo Art Museum Assis Chateaubriand. This is an unfolding of the exhibition "Histórias mestiças", held at 2014 in the Institute by Adriano Pedrosa and Lilia Schwarcz, who also sign the curatorship of this new exhibition, together with Ayrson Heráclito and Hélio Menezes, invited curators, and Tomás Toledo , assistant curator.
