The crossings in partnership between the 13th BIA and the exhibition Daido Moriyama: a retrospective, organized by Instituto Moreira Salles, aim to promote approximations between the photography made by Moriyama and the look at the city of São Paulo. The walk begins on Avenida Paulista, where the exhibition is on display, provoking a look at the city through photography, inspired by Moriyama’s conceptual thinking. Along the following route, participants are invited to learn about the history of the place and to create their own images. The Bixiga district concentrates important waterways such as Saracura and Itororó. As it is a region between rivers, the presence of the original peoples in the city was significant. The memory of Saracura also has great relevance because on its bank there was a quilombo and the samba school Vai-Vai. The proposed crossing will follow the course of the rivers, passing through the Teatro Oficina region (Parque do Bixiga) to the Vale do Anhangabaú, where both rivers flow.
