Rio de Janeiro

One of the major economic and cultural hubs of South America, the City of Rio de Janeiro sits at the heart of the Southeastern Region where 60% of the Brazilian GDP is concentrated. A cosmopolitan metropolis, known worldwide for its scenic beauty and its natural resources, the city provides a harmonious and agreeable environment for its inhabitants and visitors, for both leisure and work, which combined with its infrastructure, makes Rio an important center for commerce and services, with the advantage of a modern and diversified industrial sector. The City of Rio de Janeiro, which occupies an area of 1.261 Km2, and has a population of 5.850.544 (according to the IBGE 2000 census), recognizes that one of its main virtues is the kindness and hospitality with which its residents welcome all visitors.

Rio de Janeiro, a multi-faceted destination, is the focus of the travel industry in Latin America and is unique in terms of its natural beauty. The richness of its history and the contagious fun of its residents have contributed to its image as a very special destination, especially during its two major festivals: Reveillon and Carnaval.

Copacabana Beach

Rio is a city of contrasts. The colonial architecture provides a reminder of the past while striking modern buildings provide a glimpse into the future. Two landmarks, true postcard images, are known the world over: the Sugar Loaf and the Statue of Christ the Redeemer.

Its exuberant natural resources include 90 Km of beaches, the Tijuca National Park (which includes the largest urban forest in the world with 3,200 hectares of Atlantic Forest), the State Parks of Pedra Branca, Desengano and Chacrinha, covering an area of 48.500 hectares, and the Rodrigo de Freitas, Jacarepaguá, Camorim, Tijuca and Marapendi lakes and lagoons.

Visitors always discover what the residents know and are proud of: there's always something new happening in Rio exhibitions, dance / music shows and sporting events.

With its ample infrastructure of tourism services, Rio de Janeiro is ranked among the top destinations in the world to host cultural, commercial, technical/scientific events, fairs, symposia, congresses, conventions and exhibitions.

This is the Rio de Janeiro that awaits you at the 2nd IGF Meeting.

Museum of Modern Art
Conceived in 1948, the institution occupied the annex of the Boavista Bank in the Candelaria district and in 1952, was transferred to the area supported by stilts of the present Gustavo Capanema Palace, then Ministry of Education and Culture. On this second site, the first great Museum of Modern Art exhibition was held with prize winning works from
the 1st São Paulo Biennial in 1951 together with works by various Brazilian artists. In 1958, its final transference to the Flamengo Aterro marked the beginning of a course to encourage the production of modern artistry. This construction represents an architectural mark, which is the result of the design by architect Affonso Eduardo Reidy and the landscape project of Burle Marx. Since August, 1990, when it returned to its normal activities following a fire which occurred in 1978, the Museum has been presenting great national as well as international exhibitions. At present, the Museum has a collection of about 11.000 objects with sculptures and paintings by internationally renowned as well as Brazilian artists such as Bruno Giorgi, Maria Martins, Di Cavalcanti and also representatives of neo-concrete art such as Lygia Clark, Helio Oiticica, Franz Weissman, Amilcar de Castro and Wyllis de Castro.
