Four Flags 2020
Four Flags 2020
Four Flags 2020 São Paulo is a temporary project, brought to fruition by Galeria Jaqueline Martins in connection with Dutch curators Julia Mullié and Nick Terra, and bred by the urgency of these new times.
Already underway in Amsterdam, the project sprang from a desire to develop ways of encouraging artmaking amid this shutdown, but also as an opportunity to generate revenue so artists in our scene will remain productive. All flags will be produced in 4 + 1 A.P and all proceeds (BRL 800 apiece) will go to the participating artists.
Participating artists so far: Thomaz Rosa / Ana Mazzei / Pedro França / Cibelle Cavalli Bastos / Cemfreio / André Parente / Mônica Nador / Maria Montero / Amilcar Packer / Dudu Santos / Aline Motta / Vanessa da Silva / Bruno Baptistelli / Maria Noujaim / Luiza Crosman / Marilia Furman / Deyson Gilbert / Genilson Soares / Pontogor / Tatiana Dalla Bona / Ícaro Lira / Marina Dalgalarrondo / Leopoldo Ponce / Caroline Valansi / Daniel Albuquerque / Marga Ledora / Gustavo Ferro / Ana Lira / Renata De Bonis / Flora Rebollo / Santídio Pereira / Mônica Ventura. The images will be updated every time a new flag is installed.
We hope initiatives such as this will be regarded not as temporary solutions to the current situation, but as food for thought on how exhibitions and cultural projects occupy institutional spaces around the world. Four Flags is a reminder that secondary materials and temporality are also necessary qualities in art.
