About me

Teresa Pinheiro holds an MA in Management of the Arts and Culture from the Catholic University of Lisbon and a BA in Artistic Studies from the Faculty of Letters of the University of Lisbon. In 2013, she did Erasmus in Paris, where she lived six months and studied Lettres et Arts at the Université Paris Diderot - Paris 7. She is a member of FAZ 15-25: the Museu Arpad Szenes-Vieira da Silva's Youth Collective, where she has the opportunity of participating in the programming of the museum. Last year, she developed the project Repensar Museus: a set of informal conversations where professionals in the cultural and artistic field (curators, artists, museum's directors, architects) met to share new ideas and projects about museums. Currently, she is working as a production assistant and as the main responsible for group/schools visits at the Real Bodies Exhibition. Her main interest is to deconstruct the idea of elitism and formality in the artistic and cultural areas by breaking the still existent borderlines between these fields and society. She is interested in working these questions through visual arts, cultural events and education.

  • Dissertation title: "The exhibition as knowledge production" The exhibition of contemporary art, since its emergence within the museological and curatorial context, has experienced social, political and economic changes influenced by the historical and artistic in which they are inserted. The figure of the curator, equally in constant transformation, has come to play a mediating role that establishes and reinforces the relationships between artists, audience, museum professionals and other cultural institutions. Recently, this set of changes contributed to the dilution of institutional boundaries between professions, departments and subjects, which resulted in the elaboration of curatorial projects based on collaboration and networking. It is as an effect of these innovations that the present dissertation intends to study the exhibition as knowledge production. The analysis of the curatorial projects Academy (2004-2006), The New Model: An Inquiry (2011-2015) and Under the Clouds: From Paranoia to the Digital Sublime (2015), which took place in the European context of the last fifteen years, is the starting point for the study of the exhibition and the curatorial as instruments of communication, collaboration and mediation. Keywords: exhibition, curator, contemporary art, mediation
