Describe the brief from the client
After 12 years, one of the most important museums in Latin America decided to change the exhibition of its permanent collection. Therefore, the second floor of its building had to be closed for one year for the renovations.
Our challenge was to keep visitors interested in the museum during this period and stimulate their curiosity about what was coming next.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
However, instead of creating a campaign to do so, we decided to create an artistic movement: ‘Curiousism. The cat that lives inside each of us’.
In order to make the movement seem real, we had to use a visual identity that is often used by museums to promote some exhibitions.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
Based on the idea that every material should suggest that Curiousism was a real artistic movement with a real exhibition, we decided to keep the visual clean, minimalist and informative, just like museums materials often are.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
All the ‘curious’ material available at the museum drew the attention of the media - with a lot of media coverage about the subject, and of the public.
After one year, of the opening of Curiousism exhibition, precisely on October 15, 2011, the movement ended with the opening of the new long-term exhibition at Pinacoteca. In just one weekend, the number of visitors tripled.
