China Square

The Curitiba City Hall, in conjunction with a Curitiba Biennial, pays homage to the People’s Republic of China with an opening of the “China Square” in Curitiba, the opening week of the Biennial. Largo da China is located in the Centro Cívico neighborhood, at Rua Deputado Mário de Barros, at the corner of Marechal Hermes Street, next to the Iguaçu Palace, headquarters of the Government of Paraná and near the Oscar Niemeyer Museum, South America’s largest museum. At the site, a cast bronze sculpture, measuring 2.95 meters high and weighing 1,200 kg, called “Confucius”, by the renowned Chinese artist Wu Weishan, will be implanted.
