São Paulo, 7 de Mayo – Between 18 and 26 de Mayo, photographers, curators, collectors, artists and fans of this segment will give the second edition of Foto_Invasão, project, since 2016, celebrates the photo and its consequences. Over nine days, no Red Bull Station, the subject occupies a central position in activities such as workshop, Lecture, exhibitions and installations scattered throughout the building.
“More than an event that brings together facilities, exhibition and sale of prints, the Foto_Invasão is a large gathering of supporters and lovers of photography, as well as a sensory experience”, define Ignacio Aronovich, photographer, journalist and one of the creators of the meeting, along with Louise Chin –the other end of the collective dubbed “Lost Art”. Together with Cris Veit, Clelia Bailly e Fernando Velázquez, five form the curatorial team Foto_Invasão, responsible, for example, for choosing the five artists who will hold workshops with photographic installations.
“One of the issue of differential 2018 It is the open call”, Ig account. “In 2016, participants were invited by the Trustees, and, in this issue, anyone could sign up”. The criteria for the choice of artists –both the facilities as of photographic projections that will occur in the programming intervals– They were basically the same: originality, proposal and artistic quality. “Escape from the 'white cube format’ a gallery is a good starting point”, evaluates Aronovich.
In addition to all the visual and sensory programming facilities, projections and exposure, the event will also have an educational arm, com o workshop “Family meeting – Narratives photobook” — given by the curators Cris Veit and Clelia Bailly –, and the lecture “Photo transition for the video and its consequences”, with journalist, photographer, filmmaker and director John Wainer.
