Online Accompaniment in Artistic Research with Allan Yzumizawa

Accompaniment in online artistic research is a group that proposes to encourage the development and reflection of the practices of visual artists. Mediated by researcher and curator Allan Yzumizawa, in this series of meetings, the resolutions of individual works will be developed and discussed collectively, as well as their pertinent questions through texts, conversations and references from other artists.

The two-hour (2h) weekly meetings are composed of discussions of texts suggested by the bibliography (or as demands and indications arise during the meetings) and the follow-up of the individual work processes and, at the end of the follow-up, an exhibition will be developed in the Alê Espaço de Arte with the projects developed during the follow-up. In this way, the active participation of the artists is essential, as well as the weekly feedback to bring new productions to the continuity of the works.
