Considered as reference in contemporary art, the 46th Anual de Arte (Art Annual) FAAP, a visual arts exhibition created for students of Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado (FAAP), will be inaugurated November 17, at Museu de Arte Brasileira MAB-FAAP in São Paulo.

This traditional exhibition presents works produced with different supports, techniques and mediums, selected by a committee formed by professionals from the art circuit such as artists, researchers, critics, curators and professors of the Faculdade de Artes Plásticas of FAAP (Faculty of Arts). The 2014 committee is formed by Aline Van Langendonck, Fernando Oliva, Nancy Betts and Marcos Moraes.

In each edition, we invite two artists to participate as special guests. This year they are Ana Mazzei and Isis Gasparini. The artists will present works created when they were in Cité des Arts, the Artist-in-Residence Program held by FAAP since 1997, in Paris. Besides the works, documents and materials showing the creative processes will be displayed, documenting the research developed by the artists throughout the six months in the residency program.

“The strategy of having a guest artist—someone that maintains or has maintained a relationship of teacher or student with the Faculdade de Artes Plásticas (College of Arts)—expands the opportunity of possible dialogues between the creation of current visual arts students with professionals that are inserted in the art world. The presence of these former students in the exhibition increases the possibility of relationships among different levels of the art world and strengthens the relationship with history and the work conducted in the Curso de Artes Visuais of FAAP (Visual Arts Course),” says professor Marcos Moraes, exhibition curator and coordinator of the Visual Arts Course of FAAP.

Created and organized annually by FAAP since 1964, it is seen as one of the most traditional and enduring exhibition compared to the others in the city of São Paulo, playing a prominent role nationwide.

André Komatsu, Flavia Junqueira, Graziela Kunsch, Guilherme Peters, Lia Chaia, Marcela Tiboni, Marcelo Cidade, Marcius Galan, Mariana Palma, Marina Rheingantz, Maurício Ianês, Mauro Piva, Monica Nador, Rafael Assef and Rodolpho Parigi are some of those who have previously participated of this event.

Over five decades, the Annual helps to insert young talents into professional life, and innovates the concept of contemporary art and creativity. Its goal is to encourage students’ artistic production, and create a space for reflection from new ideas and insights about art, having education as a tool and interface.

“FAAP is a centralized point of art and culture that allows people to experience and experiment arts seriously and in accordance with the requirements of the art system. If art enhances the prospects of dialogue and approaches artists and participants, then the space of the Annual increases greatly that prospect, bringing it to the institutional space of education. The art instigates, denounces, questions, provokes reflections and enables new ways of thinking,” says professor Marcos Moraes.

Formed by leading professionals in the field of visual arts and engaged in national and international art circuit, the Award Committee will give seven scholarships among the selected artists: three annual scholarships with 90% of discount on the course fee, two scholarships with 75% of discount and two scholarships with 60% of discount.

A complete catalogue is edited. The publication is a portfolio for FAAP students who stood out, since college, in national and international art circuit. This year, the catalog will have an electronic version that can be accessed through FAAP website.

 

Curso de Artes Visuais – FAAP  (Visual Arts Course – FAAP)
Created in the mid-1950s, the Visual Arts Course at FAAP, recognized as  benchmark in this field, gathers a significant portion of the Brazilian artistic production and theory representatives in the visual art field, who were students or teachers in this institution. Among them, different generations of artists and professionals that made part of FAAP, for example, in the 1970s, Leirner, Regina Silveira, Julio Plaza, Carmela Gross and Walter Zanini; in the 1980s and 1990s, Leda Catunda, Dora Longo Bahia, Georgia Kyriakakis and Regina Johas.

Currently, the course trains professionals in the field of visual arts, artists, researchers and people responsible for the art world. Throughout these decades, FAAP has established itself is a reference area for research and artistic production, especially in the contemporary art scene nationally and even internationally.
