From 23 from May to 12 of August, the Occupation program arrives at its 40ª edition and honors an intellectual from São Paulo who is a miner born in Rio de Janeiro. An accurate reader, who admired writers like Guimarães Rosa and Marcel Proust. An academic father, but that interrupted the writing of great works, like Formation of Brazilian Literature, to play with the daughters. Who danced with them, who loved to sing and walk, who was considered a good man by all who knew him: Antonio Candido.
A literary critic and sociologist, Candido is one of the greatest references in the study of literature in Brazil and, through his perceptions of national dynamics, is considered one of the "interpreters of the country", alongside names like Sérgio Buarque de Holanda - who was his friend - and Gilberto Freyre. Deceased in 2017, Candido would complete 100 years in 24 in July. The exhibition thus explores a life and a work that spanned a century.
The exhibition focuses on the theme of literature as a universal right, an idea that the professor developed in the article entitled "Right to Literature", and displays previously unpublished material selected from the personal collection of the honoree. They are notes for essays, study books, research projects, a set by which the creative process of essential works such as the aforementioned Training ... and The Partners of Rio Bonito.
In addition, the Occupation promotes an international colloquium with the presence of people close to Candido and his work. In the meetings, which take place from 23 to 25 in May, the tables include lawyer Celso Lafer, writers Antonio Prata and Luiz Ruffato, Professors Šárka Grauová and Pablo Rocca and researchers José Miguel Wisnik, Marisa Lajolo and Walnice Nogueira Galvão.

The curatorship is Itaú Cultural and Laura Escorel, granddaughter of Candido.
