Résumé

The ways in which we understand this figure in the history of art are the result of the visual and textual discourses built upon it. Its representations are present in portraits and self-portraits, sculptures, paintings, engravings and objects. It is also built through artistic criticism, the press, caricature, pieces of literature, biographies, or autobiographies. From texts of self-promotion to cinematographic works, we are interested in all forms of representation of the artist's figure, both visual and textual. Our temporal range is ample, reflections on the artist in diverse historical places and periods, including contemporaneity, are emphasized in the Brazilian and Latin American context, without ignoring comparative perspectives. Our starting point is the following question: In what ways have the transformations of perception about artists and their meanings (social, cultural, symbolic and political) marked the writings of art history?

Presentation

What are the representations of the artist's figure and how have they transformed over time? Intellectuals or artisans, martyrs or demons, naive or revolutionary, madmen or philosophers? Possibly, artists have been and still are characters in which several layers of interpretation coexist and blend. In this X edition of the D. João VI Museum Seminar, we present the theme "artist’s represetations", in parallel to the exhibition organized by Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo and the Brazilian Museum of Fine Arts, with the objective of investigating the historical constructions of the artist's image, bringing the reflection to the Brazilian and Latin American context, past and present. This has been extensively explored in French and English literature and acquires special relevance in this specific geographic universe, marked by the social distinctions concerning manual labor and the late formation of the art medium in the modern sense, after the formation of the academies and an artistic promotion system through exhibitions and the art market.

Thematic Axis

The seminar is organized around three thematic axis: creation and craftsmanship, the artist’s persona, and the artist and his models, which create a direct dialogue with the current exhibition about artists’ representations.

  • Creation and Craft

The first axis is devoted to the artist during the process of creation, performing his craft in his workshop, his studio or outdoors. The representations of these processes construct the artist’s image and as well as his/her relationship with the ideal and the real, the imagination, nature, fantasy and reality.

  • The artist’s persona

The second axis encompasses portraits and self-portraits dealing with the construction of the artist’s persona and of his own myth, as well as with pre-defined social roles based on gender, race and cultural identities. It includes self images and images constructed by others: artists, critics, art historians, writers, curators, etc.

  • The artist and his models

The third axis contemplates the relationship between the artist and his or her models: images from his education and from his masters, references (both textual and visual), conceptual models (allegories of nature, of art objects and of creation) as well as concrete models (live models, photographs and presential poses).
