The purpose of the present research project is to investigate the so-called exhibition cinema. It concerns a relatively recent term, used to identify audiovisual works that are in the transit between the visual arts and the cinema. To this end, we will analyze audiovisual installations exhibited at the 48th Venice Biennale (1999), the 11th Documenta de Kassel (2002) and the 29th São Paulo Biennial (2010).In these temporary exhibitions, it was possible to verify a high index of audiovisual works, in which the spectator was able to connect not only with the artworks, but also with the exhibition area, as an important place enabling fruition. Hence, we will study by means of the moving images' genealogy (that also includes the visual projections), how the current transit between those languages was possible, via a process of images' imaterialization and their association with the supports that contemplate a new way of feeling the space.Therefore, it is understood that from the 1990's onward, another relationship starts with the exhibition space, where there will be a search for the spatiality of audiovisual works, such as multiple projections in the sets. In the same way, we can argue that there has been a significant change concerning the spectator, who through audiovisual installations will go through the exhibition attentive to one's perceptions of the space, beyond the visual impression.
