Eva Klabin House Museum

Lagoa, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The Eva Klabin House Museum is situated in her residence of over 30 years and includes a permanent exhibition of the collection formed by Eva Klabin (1903-1991). It is one of the most important collections of classical art in any Brazilian museum, with pieces ranging from Ancient Egypt to Impressionism, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and decorative art. As well as organizing visits to the collection, the institution produces several other activities, including temporary exhibitions, concerts, courses, workshops, and publications. The Breathing Project creates temporary installations of contemporary art in the exhibition space, and has become a reference for this type of intervention in cultural institutions.
