Accompaniment in Artistic Research with Élcio Miazaki

The proposed activity will take place over a period of four months, in different instances for each artist, continuously and in groups, whose objective will be:

  1. Observation of the elements that make up the portfolio of the artist, raising which can be considered virtues and other ‘problems’, in order to verify how each analyzed material actually meets the objectives/anxieties of the artist;
  2. Conceptualization on a case-by-case basis. Surveys of how much the portfolio can communicate, justify decisions and reinforce the artist’s approach. Finally, following – or not – standards understood as the minimum necessary and identifying which are the determining factors (which limit or aggregate);
  3. Survey of visual and textual references, case by case;
  4. Discussions regarding public notices, selection processes, and other art systems;
  5. Development of authorial and collective projects within contemporary contexts;
  6. Production and creation of arts based on research and specific data;
  7. Practice in terms of exhibitions, from conception to post-production;
  8. Development of an exhibition with the projects developed during the follow-up.

About the advisor

Élcio Miazaki, an artist born in 1974 in São Paulo, graduated in Architecture and Urbanism from the University of São Paulo (FAUUSP).
