Paula Braga

Paula Braga is developing a study on how the 1960’s concept of participatory art is being used by contemporary artists. Her PhD thesis at the Department of Philosophy, University of S. Paulo, Brazil investigates the work of Brazilian artist Hélio Oiticica, arguing that his oeuvre is based on a concept of collective creation, where artists and philosophers from different eras partake. Her master’s dissertation at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign presents the influence of Friedrich Nietzsche on Hélio Oiticica’s works. She currently writes for art magazines such as Bravo! (São Paulo) and has published in academic journals such as Concinnitas (Rio de Janeiro), Third Text (London), and Ramona (Buenos Aires). In 2010, she wrote the article “The curator in the gallery”, published in O Ofício do Curador [The craft of curating] (Porto Alegre: Editora Zouk). She also organized the book Loose Threads: The Art of Hélio Oiticica (São Paulo: Perspectiva, 2008).
