Mãe como curadora

Encontros éticos no fazer arte com crianças

Palavras-chave: Mãe como curadora, Local específico, Prática de arte familiar


Este artigo e a prática de pesquisa, “Mother as Curator”, fala diretamente com a mãe que desenvolve arte com sua família e aborda as implicações éticas que surgem desse tipo de performance. A autora discute dois trabalhos que ela desenvolveu com suas crianças, Oliver’s World (2014) e Isabel’s Shoes (2017). Estes trabalhos de performances e encontros destacam e encorajam o fazer performático por diferentes ângulos, reconhecendo as maneiras pelas quais o “fazer arte” como parte da vida familiar muda perspectivas e entendimentos do que conhecemos como prática artística e as formas como ela pode ser experienciada.
