Tiago de Abreu Pinto

In Rio, I'll be chatting with artists. Listening, mainly. Henceforth, said artists, will be the basis 
of fictional texts (perhaps, not so much, because everything they say is incorporated into the text 
and therefore not fictional and more real). The aforementioned artists should not be excluded from the 
dialogue after the text has been completed since I believe that contact with the artist must be 
continuous and permanent. In other words, I will connect the artist's message (or, better said, voice) 
to the public through texts that incorporate features of his idiosyncrasy. In the sweet slopes of this 
communication, the allusion to Mikhail Bakhtin's dialectical and dialogical forms will become clear to 
explore new forms of critical mediation. Furthermore, this process will transform the different voices 
of the artists into a fictional mass that sheds light on various themes such as: (a) interpretation 
and neutrality, (b) the limits between fiction and reality and (c) different ways in which contemporary 
artists incorporate your ideas.
