The public call for the second leg of the Panorama Festival 2021 has received 273 valid projects sent by artists from all regions of the country.

The curatorship was in charge of the festival’s artistic director Nayse López, the visual artist Rafael RG, and the choreographer and dancer Marcelo Evelin. The selection committee evaluated the applications (projects + portfolios + budget proposal) considering the curatorial concept of the Panorama Festival. Any direct relationship with any person from the curatorial team in the submissions led to an abstention of that vote.

With the new partnerships made in the last weeks, the Panorama Raft format has been updated: In addition to the 10 creation projects selected to compose the second leg of the Panorama Festival in 2021, a second line of support, called Research & Development, has also been created. Each of the projects included in this line will engage in a program with artists and/or curators and there will be a public sharing of their processes at the end of the 3 months of work.

Given the current scenario of precariousness in Brazil, we are very glad about the number of applications that we have received. We thank all people who trusted in this project (artists, partners, staff and audience).

In Rafael RG’s words: “[…] the Panorama Raft as a double path, at the same time it stimulates the production and maintenance of different artists and artistic groups in Brazil, the program that will emerge from the selected works will present different issues and visions of the world to the public, which are of great relevance in face of everything we are experiencing. This highlights the power of art to generate ideas and reverberations which might indicate paths when everything around us seems to be drowning“. He adds that the always delicate work of curating reveals that “[…] despite all the adversities we are living, Brazil has a great diversity of artists. Multiple voices and different understandings of the contemporary art practice“.

Marcelo Evelin comments that the second leg of the Panorama Festival 2021 is: “[…] a very consistent survival kit in times of turbulent seas and bodies thrown overboard. Rafts are fragile and provisional vessels and the name of this project already says a lot. Rafts save some and unfortunately leave others adrift, waiting for the waves to bring strong trunks to hold on to, so that from this wreckage new rafts emerge, from the entanglement of desire and need in this sea that is the same for all, but with so radically different vessels to navigate”.
