Project Timeline: April 1 th – April 30 th 2022
The goal of this proposal is to establish a curatorial advisory for all exhibitions and cultural events to be developed by Gambiarra store in the month of April.
Gambiarra store has held several cultural and artistic activities every month, some of them already known to the community for their constancy, such as the MintbaseSunday, and other unique activities such as the FEMINU exhibition I curated.
Why we need a curator?
The importance of having a curator in these artistic events is that the curator’s sharp eye establishes different clippings, ways of exposing, and unusual encounters between artists, which together form a language of their own to instigate visitors and .
I propose to establish a dialogue, whenever possible, with the several activities that take place throughout the month, integrating workshops with exhibitions. Interpretation of poems with the creation of original works using some related theme, for example. Idealize bountys for the community to actively participate in many of the activities of the Gambiarra store, make cutouts of artists for specific exhibitions throughout the month and once a permanent space in cryptovoxels is defined, decide how to organize the space establishing a rotation scheme in order to give opportunities for diverse artists to exhibit their work following the curatorial cut.
We’ll have at Gambiarra several exhibitions a month . In April we will have the already known MintbaseSunday that has presented about 20 artists , we will also have the World Art Day with 40 artists , alone totaling 60 NFTs.
Besides curating these exhibitions, there will be meta-architecture work , because the building is not builted.
We also have a marketing that promotes artists in the social networks, which I will be the one to select, following the works that have been minted in the store that counts with 187 members, that is, we are a big store.
In addition, I will set up a permanent exhibition that will house at least 10 artists that will take turns so that many will have the opportunity to show their work either in the parcel we are getting with free rent or in my space at cryptovoxels, also with my meta architecture work.
Even more… I will make exhibitions of artist duos that can show more works, because in the permanent exhibition we will only have one work of each artist. In this cut I intend to establish dialogues between the works presented, that is, also having the conceptual work of the exhibition developed by me.
If this were not already a bold enough project, I also want to establish, space permitting, a place for workshops that may have a link to an exhibition that is in progress.
I have an artistic career that includes several international exhibitions and is about to complete 20 years. Since the beginning of my experience with NFTs, I became interested in curating exhibitions in the metaverse, having been one of the curators of BrazucasNFT, the largest exhibition of NFTs by Brazilians until then, I held several solo shows at cryptovoxels, and recently, I idealized, organized and curated FEMINU, which included 60 artists among cis women, trans women, non-binary women and transvestites. Both Brazucas and FEMINU had the expography carefully planned and especially praised in terms of its originality.
