The present platform hosts interviews with women artists and women professionals as a way to investigate the participation of women in the art world. The project aims to comprehend this dynamics through the perception and voices of the women agents in this scenario.
The interviews presented here come from three different of projects: The Studio as a Place for Dialogue (awarded by artist Lilian Maus – I Funarte Prize for Women in Visual Arts) that created multiple interfaces to further dialogue on the place women occupy in the Brazilian contemporary visual art world; Women in Contemporary Art (awarded by journalist Isabel Waquil – Connections Exchange Program 2014) that aimed to investigate the participation of women in the art world through the method of interview taking as studying case A.I.R. Gallery, a feminist gallery located in New York, United States, since 1972; and Women in Contemporary Art as an independent interview platform project developed as a sequel to the work initiated in the previously projects. All the interviews presented here were part of one of these three projects.
Although they come from different context, these materials have a main goal in common: to create spaces for exchanges between women agents of the contemporary art scene to build knowledge and to produce and share knowledge about the processes of creation and circulation of art, from active female voices in contemporary art circuit.
