The exhibition brings together a collection of paintings, photographs, assemblages, site-specific, performances and facilities – some unpublished, designed to show -, and derives from the national proposal call by the collective of women artists Trovoa. The work arises from the need to present and discuss the plurality of languages, media and research being produced by women racialized by country, while seeking to decentralize the speeches and create a network of women artists, thus expanding the art circuit.
To compose the collective to be exposed in Baró Gallery, women artists of different generations are participating in an immersive process 4 weeks, in which open up and discuss their productions, to foster experiences, strengthen speeches, understand the creative processes and expand the ecosystem of visual arts. “these meetings, arise the work that will be part of the show, also presenting a new way to organize an exhibition from the mutual interest of those dissidents bodies reinvent new future possibilities”, says curator and Carollina Lauriano - it also performs the mediation of such meetings.
“The night did not fall asleep never in our eyes"It is also composed of work produced outside the above-mentioned process immersive. Aline Motta displays the picture “Bridges over abysses #3“, on what “(…) Niterói artist uses a number of strategies in order to put together a possible family genealogy. oral history reports, some documentation, family files and DNA tests recreate african-Atlantic ties of kinship, an inverted route of the slave trade: City sweepers, in Rio de Janeiro, towards Sierra Leone, in Africa”, says Hélio Menezes, in “Afro-Atlantic Stories”. The curator also highlights the issues addressed by each artist, which pass through spirituality and healing processes, memory and identity, displacements, struggles and institutionalized violence.
As part of the show, will cycle discussion titled "What happens after we got here?”, one not only reflect on the presence of racialized artists in the art field, but also about the diversity of its productions and artistic investigations that cross their jobs. In the words of Carollina Lauriano: “Upon entry of these bodies in the system, be it institutional or commercial, as we began a new chapter in art history? Curators and artists will be asked to think about gender and race within institutions and market, and what still needs to be done to reach an equal footing. Would this wish possible and capable of performing? In addition to the discussion, we aim to find solutions for open questions”.
