Turbulence – Artist Talks is an exclusive program organized by Instituto Tomie Ohtake, in partnership with SP-ARTE – International Art Fair in São Paulo, that offers the public the opportunity to get in touch with international and Brazilian artists, to learn more about their artistic production, interests and research.
To make this possible, Instituto Tomie Ohtake decided to create a single program of activities that are in dialogue with the current exhibitions on show, that also establish a connection with SP-ARTE.
In addition to the three Brazilian artists João Castilho, Jorge Soledar Chaia, currently on show at Instituto Tomie Ohtake in the exhibition ‘It ́s like dancing about the architecture,’ part of the program Arte Atual (Current Art) town: Bosco Sodi (1970, Mexico City. Lives and works in New York), Dalila and Lia will share their experiences with names that, at the time of SP-Arte, will be in Gonçalves, (1982, Castelo de Paiva, Portugal. Lives and works in Porto and Castelo de Paiva), Ignacio Gatica (1988, Chile. Lives and works in Santigo, Chile), Mariana Mauricio (1983, Rio de Janeiro. Lives and works in London), Navid Nuur (1976, Iran. Lives and works in The Hague) and Pier Stockholm (1977, Lima, Peru. Lives and works in Paris). To close the day, the consecrated artists Carmela Gross (1964, São Paulo. Lives and works in São Paulo), Sandra Cinto (1978, Santo André, SP. Lives and works in São Paulo) and Waltercio Caldas (1946, Rio de Janeiro. Lives and works in Rio de Janeiro) will participate in the roundtable of the launch of the exhibition catalogue ‘The Many and the One - Contemporary Brazilian Art in the collection of Andrea and José Olympio Pereira.’
João Castilho, Jorge Soledar and Lia Chaia share their experiences in the concepts behind the show "It's like dancing about the architecture" from the Arte Atual Program, developed by Instituto Tomie Ohtake since 2013, in which the exhibition is built from direct contact between artists and curators and made possible in partnership with the galleries that represent them. In this edition, the concept of the show brings as a motto the relation between body and space in its more intimate aspect as well as in perspective with the city.
International guests will participate in a round of public interviews coordinated by Paulo Miyada, curator of Instituto Tomie Ohtake and coordinator of the Curatorial and Research Department, also involved in these interviews. Following a brief presentations of each artist, Miyada will ask some questions that will help deepen the understanding of the themes approached.
