CCBB representatives visit the Netherlands
In the last week of this month - 23-26 April - two representatives of the Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil (CCBB) will visit several cultural sites in Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht. The visitors are the programming managers of São Paulo and Brasília.
The CCBB is a cultural organization of the Banco do Brasil based in Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, and São Paulo, with a next CCBB opening in Belo Horizonte soon. The CCBB began in 1986. It opened in Rio de Janeiro in 1989, Brasilia in 2000, and São Paulo in 2001. The cultural centre is entirely financed by private money and has a strong interest in high quality international art. The exhibition of Dutch artist Escher last year has attracted half a million of visitors and was selected as 'best exhibition of the year' by the Brazilian audience.
