In the dependence of a former orphanage is located Casa Daros, home of the Daros-Latin America whose parent company resides in Zurich, on the other side of the Atlantic, sheltered from the ethnic, political and sexual conflicts that mark our continent. Amid the hectic traffic of Rio, barricaded between Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf, on the border between Botafogo, Urca and Copacabana, Casa Daros is an oasis for contemporary art. Or rather, contemporary art is an oasis for the endless movement that gives you energy and drive to the carioca city.
The orphanage was completely renovated and now face you saw is exceptional. The neoclassical lines of the original building and give it a patrimonial distinction that few contemporary buildings have in Brazil. His brothers enclosures-the Museum of Modern Art in Rio, the Niterói Contemporary Art Museum and the Art Museum of Rio-out for the recovery that give modern architecture, one of the identity and relevant products export BFG with the names of Affonso Reidy, Oscar Niemeyer Bernardes + Jacobsen and office.
The study of these complexities does not mean at all a daunting task for private initiatives like collecting -analysis should also be made with collections Affairs Department, but seeks to understand the types of viewers who generate these instances. Places that combine such complex concepts as Latin America and collecting lead us to think that most of the time a museum is much more than a museum.[Top]
Chronicle of a committee is an audiovisual project born from the desire of them relatives of the victim to give registration to the fruitless search for justice. And I say fruitless because here there has been no justice. Currently Miguel Millacura, who fired the shot that killed Manuel, remains free -presuntamente- working as a policeman, because the military justice system , inherited from the dictatorship, so permits. And despite the charge of institutional awareness of the crumbs offered as compensation, the sinister emotional blackmail with which evangelical chaplains in the same institution carabineros buy the silence and complicity of a family that knows little more than the deep pain that it causes the loss of a son, despite the shame of the scene, whether we like it or not, as mentioned in the film, on the ground that justice does not exist for the poor. But there for evangelical family environment, as a future promise of divine justice, as the relief in another time, God ‘s grace through undoubtedly come. Ergo , the feeling is that the relevance of militancy and that insistent struggle impunity is questioned even within the same family precisely because, as they say, justice is not in our hands.
Chronicle of a committee , shows how the figure of Manuel Gutiérrez is problematic as it exposes a whole huge dispute over control of the images. It is not just another of the dead in democracy, is also the subject of trivial political debate. Because the student movement as timely as opportunistically appropriated his image to give the status of martyr. It instrumentalized his figure as his fateful death taking symbolic performance, reluctantly even his own family. Perhaps this is one of the saddest conclusions that leaves the documentary, that ungrateful feeling that finally all truth is strategic and therefore unbearable fiction.[Top]
If I could donate something to that nebula it begins to form would be the following: while the engine is to guide the excessive and irrepressible passion for art somehow everything will be fine. Everything can be and nothing at once.
Writing was something I could always do. Even before I became a reader “capitalized”, the letters or diaries were respected and revered places. Chances are that this feeling comes from some childhood experiences with my paternal grandfather sit in front of his typewriter Underwood with the view of Santiago to the west from the eighth floor of the Villa Frei was amazing; knowing that letters that were hard percutidas turned into lead type to put together a page printing invested in the old San Francisco street was magic come true; touch the stacked sheets without stopping and freshly guillotined was feeling a huge fright as begotten by the sight of the hanging in a slaughterhouse.
Although the words left over in a society post whatsapp , into the world of art writing is becoming a technique of the Ancien Régime . When only a few decades ago the publication of a catalog was a necessary event, today the energies are invested with joy and enthusiasm in Tumblr , Instagram and Youtube . The need of writing has disappeared completely and the likes are winning the battle. In solitary essence, the writing is on the rear of the life, against the grain of agile and volatile lives of artists, curators and managers more aware of updates to Iphone and states facebook -of this not saved anyone less the writer .
Anchored in the past, nostalgic and melancholy, still I started each of my texts trying to beat the tremor pencil confrontation of a blank -in his undergraduate thesis Benmayor the reviled Samy spoke of a similar experience with the blank canvas.
I think the art critic, or the writer you should emanate a major and unsustainable to overcome that whiteness as existential desire. The words penetrate and accumulate on the page as stories of love in the life of a person: some will be forgotten; others crossed out and only a few come to settle so hard in memory that must be told again and again.[Top]
One of the occasions in which I received awards is still in my memories due to the impact that it had on me. It was in last year, soon after the results of my thesis evaluation. I was given token of appreciation by various associations that were functioning in my locality, for securing the best grades in my graduate school. Whenever I receive awards, I look at the eyes of my parents and the glow that I saw in their eyes during that time gave me the courage to move forward towards my dreams. The plaques and memento that I received for my best performance in studies were not just able to make me happy but made me more responsible as I could realize that I had met the expectations that my parents had on me. And when I was awarded, it also inspired and motivated people around me to give out their best performance and definitely it will be recognised one day.
There could be many people around us, who shall be an inspiration to us and their actions can motivate us, however there could be nothing motivating us than our own successes that we had in our past and when we look at them it will motivate us more than everything. And especially when those successes where acknowledged and recognised through an award and reward, and symbolically represented with plaques and awards, just by looking at them we will stay inspired.
Many occasions in my life made me felt elated along with my parents. I have got many plaques and awards for various things including studies, extra curriculum activities etc. I used to take part in various events that gave me chance for proving my abilities. Each and every award plaque that I have received made me felt much inspired and gave me more energy to improve my skills and abilities. It is now possible for companies to buy Custom and Personalized Award Plaques and present them to inspiring employees.
Each one of us has got some amount of artistic sense in us who really makes us to admire the beautiful things around us and thus appreciate the maker of it for his excellent creations. Most of the artistic are admired because they stand as a symbol of some meaningful past and thus tell us something inspiring about it through its design.
When we talk of artistic products the first thing tat comes to our mind are the old stone carvings, paintings in the walls of old buildings like temples and churches, mostly antiques like bronze and brass statutes and so on. However there are few other things that have survived in our houses for years and we often forget to think about them and they are the old wall clocks. Even today Howard Miller clocks are of great demand as they hundreds of collections of classic and contemporary old age clocks.
