After twelve years, the ‘Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo’ art museum decided to change its permanent exhibition, sealing off an entire floor of the museum for a full year. In order to avoid driving away the visitors from the museum during that period, we created an exhibit about curiosity, feeding expectations about the new works that would be on display in the future.

This was the genesis of the Curiosism campaign, including all of the pieces that an exhibition would have.

And for those who couldn’t make it personally, we also provided a reason to virtually “kill” your curiosity.
A cat, the ultimate symbol of curiosity, could be controlled via Facebook for three minutes, allowing
users to spy on everything that was occurring during the collection changeover.
