The Curatorial Department at Instituto Tomie Ohtake has two main aims. The first is to help develop and stage the Institute’s exhibition program by offering curatorial assistance, supplementary research, and support for the Production and Education teams.
The second is to develop medium- and long-term research projects with a view to publication, and geared towards broadening our understanding of the Institute’s areas of interest, with a particular focus on contemporary art produced in Brazil over the last six decades.
The Curatorial team at the Instituto Tomie Ohtake is led by Paulo Miyada and comprises Diego Mauro, Luana Medina, Luise Malmaceda, Priscyla Gomes and Theo Monteiro. The Department’s research in the field of Brazilian art began in 2011, with a focus on promoting national artists working across various artistic areas and encouraging debate around contemporary art. With projects like Arte Atual, the department proposes to stage group exhibitions showcasing the work of young artists, highlighting their latest research and creating a space where experimental projects can become a reality and be shared with a wider audience.
