"Working with artists instead of objects"

Pay what you can

Lezing:
Marina Coelho, Kunsthalle São Paulo

Founded in September 2012 by Marina Coelho, KUNSTHALLE São Paulo is an institution dedicated to contemporary art. Setting up projects and exhibitions of (inter)national artists, the institution is characterized by experimentation, and the creation of discussions around current social and contemporary art issues. Artists are invited to develop site-specific projects, and most often in response to the local context.

In 2017 KUNSTHALLE São Paulo ended its activities in Sao Paulo to begin a series of international projects. In Kunsthal Gent, initiator Marina Coelho will talk about KUNSTHALLE São Paulo and her future activities in Belgium.

Background of KUNSTHALLE São Paulo

In its first headquarters, in Pinheiros, KUNSTHALLE São Paulo developed also the project Vitrine, in which several artists had been invited to dialogue directly with the public space. Learning from this positive and democratic experience, KUNSTHALLE São Paulo turned its second exhibition space, in Sumaré, into a big vitrine, in which exhibitions could be seen both from outside and inside.

Its second headquarters provided also the creation of the KSP Residencies program, designed for international artists to develop new researches in São Paulo. For a better understanding of their surveys, KUNSTHALLE São Paulo offered a digital publication containing images and interviews with the residents.

To carry out its activities, KUNSTHALLE São Paulo was supported by foreign governments and the FRIENDS of KUNSTHALLE, who had a series of benefits, such as discounts and preference on the acquisition of the limited editions, produced by invited artists.

Born in 1978, in São Paulo, Marina Coelho holds a Master in Curating Contemporary Art from the Zürich University of the Arts (ZHdK). In 2012, she founded KUNSTHALLE São Paulo, a contemporary art institution, where she developed projects with several international artists for the period of four years. She was awarded a scholarship by the Independent Curators International (ICI) to take part in a Curatorial Intensive course, held at the Mori Museum in Tokyo (2013), and has been visiting lecturer at HISK, in Ghent, and at the ZHdK, in Zurich. In earlier years, Marina Coelho took part in a museology internship at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, in Venice, and worked as exhibition producer at Galeria Leme, in São Paulo. Since February 2017, Marina Coelho is based in Ghent, Belgium, where she is developing a new theoretical research and other international curatorial projects.
