Site Gallery hosted visual artist Fabiano Marques, from Sao Paulo as part of our on-going series of international artists’ residencies. Fabiano’s practice involves curatorial intervention, video and installation.
“The accidental discovery of the term ‘Fabianism-Marxism’ in the dictionary of politics drove me from an initial curiosity -about the similarity between the name of this strand of economic thinking and my name, Fabiano Marques, – to a deeper research that intends to verify to what extension it would be possible to identify myself with the strategies and history of the Fabian Society.
The project intends to research the ideas, strategies and history of this economic thought and to displace them to the art context, in order to generate tools for interventions in the artistic circuit. I am interested in the practice of dislocating a procedure from an area of knowledge to its employment in art, and then testing and evaluating its results.”
Fabiano presented a talk during his stay.
