Summary note:
Childhood stories bring together multiple and diverse representations of childhood from different periods, territories and schools, from African and Asian art to Brazilian, Cuzco and European, including sacred, baroque, academic, modern, contemporary art, and so-called folk art, as well as Drawings made by children. The exhibition is part of a MASP project of rubbing different collections, disrespecting hierarchies and territories between them. In this sense, Childhood Stories are also decolonizing stories and take on a political meaning - there is an understanding that the stories we can tell are not just those of the ruling classes or European culture and their visual conventions. Thus, Childhood Stories integrates a broader program of expositions on different stories (multiple, diverse and plural), beyond traditional narratives - Stories of Madness and Feminist Stories (begun in 2015), Stories of Sexuality (in 2017) and Stories Of slavery (in 2018). Other stories include groups, voices and images that have been repressed or marginalized, in which children are inserted and their way of seeing the world. Here, not by chance, the average height of the exhibited works was lowered by up to 30 cm in relation to the convention of the axis of vision of the spectator in the museums, seeking a closer relation to the look and body of the child.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition held april 8 to july 31st., 2016 at MASP in São Paulo.
