Conversation Art Criticism as Writing Exercise: Dialogue About the Work of Thó Simões

Art Criticism as Writing Exercise © Vila Sul
Conversation with Thó Simões (artist, Malanje), Renata Martins (curator, journalist and art critic, Bonn), Fernanda Amâncio (translator)

In a virtual workshop, participants from Brazil and the journalist and art critic Renata Martins analysed the works of the Angolan visual artist Thó Simões. They created a dynamic space of encounter and produced collective knowledge based on analysing and reflecting on the artist’s practice. The dialogical bridges between Brazil, Angola, and Germany that were created in the process come to life in the conversation between Renata Martins and Thó Simões.
