Interview with nominated artist Alexandre Vogler

Answering to the question “What is the main shortage you observe in the field of Brazilian contemporary art?”, by curator and Nominating Committee member Daniela Labra, Vogler speaks of the policies in regards to Brazilian institutions creating collections.
The artist mentions the practices involved in forming public institutions collections that end up being collections adapted from private ones, and says he is afraid of that, as the motivations that lead to creating a private collection are often based on personal taste, investment issues, etc.
Vogler goes on about his painting background, and tells us his taste in experimenting with other medias “to take risks”. He also tells us of an installation activated by a musical theatre play, exhibited in Belo Horizonte and that should be held in Rio for the second semester of 2014.
