Summer Teas – Collective reviews ///
Summer Teas Trovoa happens this season at Capacete, with format aimed to talks dedicated to reviewing critically the artwork of each other, so we can together evolve in our poetics and languages. The proposal is the exchange as the discourse construction about our researches, being comfortable for everyone in a collective way. Thus, we invite all racialized artists that feel at ease to brig a artwork (original, printed or digital form) to share and talk about art without white or masculine interferences ✨ while we eat and drink our tea 🌿🌿🌿
“The idea for National Trovoa had your beggining in march of 2019 with four artists, racialized women, each one of them reflecting about the presence of their bodies in the world. Black or non-white women, all of them involved with construction of art. They come from a movement that draws attention for the lack of visibility, space, remuneration, in other words, for the context of artist racialized women.
The discussion has grown and resulted in a collective as space of possible exchange, as the project’s manifesto says: “We are a group of artists and curators that got together with the intention of making a national visual arts exhibition produced by black and non-white women. We realized the need to talk and show our plurality of languages, discourses, researches and medias produced by us as racialized women”.”
