The Miami Art Basel, one of the major fairs of arts in the world has defined the CURE Institute Project as an entity bearing social responsibility to be supported by the 2018 agenda of the Brazilian curator, Ms. Adriana Rede.
The theme selected for 2018 was Modern & Contemporary Art.
The President of CURE, Ms. Fernanda Schwyter, joined the course “The Artistic Vanguards” and the talk “Women in Arts” as part of the Miami Art Week, in addition to joining the tour guided by the curator at the Miami Art Basel Fair.
Here is a short interview with the Curator Adriana Rede:
CURE – How important is the Miami Art Basel?
Adriana Rede – The Miami Art Basel, the largest fair of arts in the United States, gathers 268 galleries from 34 countries. It is considered as the most important fair of the world for the Latin-American market of arts. In 2018, 14 Brazilian galleries joined the fair, presenting works of renowned Brazilian and international artists. Its importance in the system of arts, both in the past and in the present times, is associated with the dissemination of a reasoning & education process driven by themes addressed by the art pieces.
CURE – Why did you support the CURE? How important is this partnership?
Adriana Rede – Currently the political/social themes integrate the repertoire of the contemporary art and many artists and museological institutions have become involved with specific projects. I understand that supporting CURE and its dissemination represent a way of engagement, being in the vanguard of future trends, using the tools that I have as a curator.
