THE EXHIBITION

Gambiarra – improvising with cheap materials that one can find easily.

The concept of gambiarra applies to the creative way of fixing and inventing objects frequently used by people living on the streets in Brazil, but also by musicians, poets and artists.

Born in São Bernardo do Campo in 1976, Nenflidio is a sound artist who also works in sculpture and drawing. During his residency, the artist works with museum visitors to create the Monochord Which Sustains the Electromagnetic Infinite, an interactive sound sculpture in which a rope is placed to vibrate infinitely by means of a circuit of positive feedback. The artist hopes to construct the sculpture with recycled household materials and appliances that produce sound, such as old radios and electronics. Nenflidio developed the project with the intent of learning to play the sculpture both privately and in collective concert, creating an environment with many sound-producing elements where participants can simultaneously create a cacophony of sound.

The ASU Art Museum Social Studies initiative challenges the traditional exhibition format by inviting artists who consider social interaction a crucial part of the art-making process to begin their work in an empty gallery in the museum. Visitors are then invited into the gallery to participate with the artist to create objects and installations, or to simply observe and question the process.

This project is made possible through funding provided by F.A.R. (Future Arts Research) @ Arizona State University and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support provided by Friends of the ASU Art Museum. Gambiarra is organized by John D. Spiak, curator, ASU Art Museum, in collaboration with Marcio Botner, director of A Gentil Carioca, Rio de Janeiro.

TweetUp!

Since more of us from around the ASU community are now using Twitter, I thought it’s time to try to get everyone to meet in person! Of course, you don’t have to be with ASU to attend – everyone is invited!

The details:  Tuesday, March 10 at ASU Art Museum; 4:00 pm

FREE parking: on the NE corner of Mill Ave at 10th Street (one light south of University). Park in the spaces outside of the Ceramics Research Center marked for museum visitors. Please sign your car in at the security desk when you get inside.

The museum is on the SE corner of Mill and 10th- just come down the stairs when you get here!
The fun part:  besides getting to meet lots of very cool people, visiting artist Paulo Nenflidio is working in one of the galleries on a collaborative project. That means that everyone can work on his art projects with him. Paulo is from Brazil and is known for his sculptures made from found and recycled objects that all create sound.

There is never any fee to come to ASU Art Museum or to work with our artists. For Paulo: if you have any noise-making things you’re planning on getting rid of anyway, like old radios, toys, etc., please feel free to bring them to donate to the project. This is not a requirement, but it is a unique way to recycle!

And this is me:

Brazilian artist Paulo Nenflidio is now getting started at the museum! He’ll be here for about six weeks and is working on creating sound sculptures. As part of our Social Studies initiative, Paulo is inviting everyone to come to the museum to create collaboratively with him. Anyone can do this- you don’t have to be affiliated with ASU, or be an artist or student. There is no fee to participate- everything you’ll need is available at the museum.

Come be part of the creative process! I’ll be watching and posting more as Paulo’s projects take shape. Have fun!

Welcome to the US!

Paulo, John and Marcio at ASU Art Museum

Paulo, John and Marcio at ASU Art Museum

Brazilian artist Paulo Nenflidio arrived in town yesterday, along with collaborator Marcio Botner, director of A-Gentil Carioca. (That’s Paulo on the left, John center and Marcio on the right.)

Paulo is at ASU Art Museum as part of our Social Studies initiative. He’ll be working in a gallery in the museum to create a sound sculpture – and we want you to help! Our Social Studies program invites the community- students, local residents, art lovers, the not-so-good-with-art crowd, everyone – to participate with the artists directly and help create art. What’s more important: we want everyone to experience the creative process.

All materials you may need are supplied by the museum for free. You don’t need to register or anything- just show up. And there’s never even an admission fee. We make it really easy to join in the fun!
