Hans Ulrich Obrist (born 1968 in Zurich, Switzerland; lives and works in London, England).

“The Insides Are on the Outside” is a group exhibition curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist at Casa de Vidro and the SESC Pompéia in São Paulo, Brazil from April to May 2013.

“Setting a major art exhibition inside modernist architect Lina Bo Bardi’s former residence Casa de Vidro, or Glass House, always risked the house’s lush surroundings overwhelming the art—not least due to the form of its wild gardens, a sensual jolt of jungle. Curator Hans Ulrich Obrist’s trick, with this group exhibition, is to enlist the house, gardens and contents, and inviting more than 30 Brazilian and international artists to work on a series of site-specific pieces: to ‘immerse themselves in Lina Bo Bardi’s world in order to establish intimate relationships with this singularly important figure’.

“This exhibition, part of which also takes place at the magnificent SESC Pompéia culture and leisure center Bo Bardi created between 1977 and 1982, is the latest in a series of ‘house-museum’ projects curated and conceived by Obrist.”
