Egídio Álvaro : o Crítico como Comissário
Ana Luísa Barão
AbstractArt criticism was to Egídio Álvaro an opportunity to act dynamically in the artistic context to influence the sense that he thought more valid - his vision of art. In line with this principle he acts as an art critic (writing in the Diário de Notícias, since 1962; in the Revista de Artes Plásticas from 1973 to 1977 and in Vida Mundial 1976) and as exhibitions curator and organizing festivals and discussions between artists. The exhibition is to Egídio Álvaro a concrete space in which thought and artistic practice are in constant dialogue and where artists and art-critic / art-curator define their visual, political and social thinking. Through the exhibitions that he curate and on which he wrote profusely - EXPO-AICA-SNBA (1972/1974), III Encontro Internacional de arte (1976) and Identidade Cultural, massificação e originalidade (1977) – he defended a critical and curatorial attitude that we considered inseparable and that lie at the crossroads of change that characterizes the museum crisis in the 1970s and the affirmation of a new exhibition formula that favors the insertion of the artwork in a living context - getting closer to the social life. How do the curatorial concepts proposals for exhibitions / biennials such as Kassel Documenta and the Paris Biennale, analyzed by Egídio Álvaro in the Portuguese press, may have influenced his curatorial concepts, is a question we seek to address in our communication through proposed a concept that puts the curatorial and critique action on the same level of intervention.
