Nthis June, MASP continues its virtual educational proposal, approaching the history of art in Brazil; women artists in the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries; an introduction to modern Brazilian architecture; the body, territory and freedom from artists such as Hélio Oiticica and Trisha Brown; and sexual violence and literature.

The courses cost R$ 240 (with a 15% discount for those who are part of the program Friend MASP) and have five classes each. Classes will be held on a virtual platform and MASP will provide a certificate for students with at least 75% attendance. The courses, unpublished, are launched every month, they are added to the already existing semesters, which migrated to the virtual environment as part of the adaptation of the museum to the pandemic and its attempt to continue spreading its collection even with the barriers imposed by isolation.

A history of art in Brazil – from Tarsila to Bárbara is taught by the art critic Luiza Interlenghi and will present an introduction to the history of Brazilian art based on works from the MASP collection. Modernism, Concretism, Neo-Concretism, the impacts of abstraction on Brazilian art are some of the themes that appear in the course whose objective is to clarify how Brazilian art contributes to the formation of our vision of culture. 

Em Hélio Oiticica to Trisha Brown: a journey through body, territory and freedom, associate curator of Instituto Tomie Ohtake, Priscyla Gomes intends to approach the relationship between body and space starting from actions, practices and actors that mark the artistic scene of this and last century. In addition to the artists already mentioned in the title, the classes intend to permeate the works of Marina Abramovic, Robert Smithson, Richard Long, Flávio de Carvalho, Francis Alÿs, Nan Goldin, Bárbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca.

Women Artists in the XNUMXth and XNUMXth Centuries proposes the study of six Italian artists: Properzia de Rossi, Plautilla Nelli, Sofonisba Anguissola, Lavinia Fontana, Artemisia Gentileschi and Giovanna Garzoni. Sexual violence and literature, using emblematic literary and theoretical passages, will seek to work on sensitivity to narratives of sex and rape, and further on, to think about how representations of eroticism capable of confronting misogyny and racism would be.

Finally, the architect Denis Joelsons makes a brief Introduction to Brazilian modern architecture approaching the pioneering experiences of Lúcio Costa, the consolidation of the figure of Oscar Niemeyer, the plurality brought by immigrants such as Lina Bo Bardi and the tensions on the national scene through key figures of the so-called “São Paulo school”: Vilanova Artigas and Paulo Mendes da Rocha .
