The catalogue for FAAP's 44th Annual Art exhibition is part of our continuing photographic documentation of works by young artists entering the market.

The catalogue for this traditional exhibition of student work organized annually by Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado contains 102 pages of images showing 37 works with the attendant details of their facture. The publication serves as a portfolio for students from our undergraduate and postgraduate courses who have since been doing outstanding work in the local and international art world.

The catalogue will be released on February 6 (Wednesday) at 12:30, during a meeting with the guest artists of the 44th Annual Art - Henrique César and Thiago Honório - who will be showing the process of creating the work done during their artist residency at Cité des Arts in Paris, in 2012.

In addition to the works, the catalogue highlights two events held alongside the exhibition in November 2012. One was the meeting of the awards commission, which consisted of Tobi Maier, art critic and associate curator for the 30th São Paulo Biennial in 2012 and former curator of Ludlow 38 gallery in New York; Felipe Scovino, art critic and professor at the art school of Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro; and the American Roberto Tejada, curator and art historian specializing in Latin American art and professor at the Meadow School of the Arts / Southern Methodist University in Dallas. The other meeting was the selection committee comprising FAAP professors Andrea Tavares, a visual artist in drawing and printmaking (stone and metal engraving); Gustavo Rafanti Rezende, sculptor, multimedia artist and architect; Marcos Morães, coordinator of FAAP's Visual Arts course and Art Residency program, and an independent curator; and Nancy Betts, master's in Communication and Semiotics, researcher and professor for the discipline 'Visual Arts - Aesthetics and Evolution'.

Produced together with the catalogue is an insert showing works and references for the artists. Renowned artists featured in past publications include Nelson Lerner, Regina Silveira, Julio Plaza, Evandro Carlos Jardim, Carmela Gross, and Edgard de Souza,

FAAP's Annual Art exhibition was first held in 1964, originally in relation to developments such as a course teaching drawing, in which FAAP led the way in São Paulo of the 1950s; the opening of FAAP's Museum of Brazilian Art in 1960; and the new visual arts school in 1967. The exhibition took a new course 1999, when it sought to show work seen as having potential in the visual art scenario. Currently the procedure involves students entering works, followed by a selection committee choosing the most significant entries, and an awards committee rewarding the most outstanding students with bursaries ranging from 60% to 90% of tuition.

Knives and catacombs

On Wednesday February 6, artists Thiago Honório and Henrique César, who took part in the Artist Residency program at Cité des Arts, FAAP's Paris studio, will be talking about the details of their six- month experiences there. Henrique César was in residence from August 2011 to January 2012, while Thiago Honório stayed from February to July 2012.

Honório initially planned a noir work based on the French writer Georges Bataille's  Eroticism. "But when I got to Paris, I was taken by flea markets and antique fairs there, selling cutting and piercing objects among other things. My focus shifted to relate to these tools and the process of understanding what an art work is about. This led to drawings that subtly point up this relationship between Bataille's world of eroticism and immersion at Cité des Arts," says Honório, who acquired over 200 different types of knives and pliers from his daily visits to street fairs in Paris.

Henrique César initially set out to examine Parisian catacombs, tunnels, and underground spaces. The challenge of transgression in relation to city authorities prompted him to transfer interventions to the surface and focus on observing the public's relationship with objects away from their usual context. His work consists of images of the catacomb he visited - and filmed using a micro-camera - and drawings of antennas that assisted with the process of creation.

"The artist residency provides an experience of immersion and a new condition for artistic production. It reaffirms the extent to which a work and its creative process are living processes subject to interference and mutation. Everything experienced by these artists in residence is assimilated into their work so one aim of the meeting is to detail the meandering process that led to the works shown at this Annual Art exhibition, " explains the curator, Professor Marcos Morães.

The works may be appreciated through February 10 at FAAP's Museum of Brazilian Art, Tuesday to Friday from 10 am to 8 pm and Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays from 1 pm to 5 pm. MAB-FAAP is located at Rua Alagoas, 903 – Higienópolis.
