PRODUTION [FORTALEZA/CE]

Eduardo Frota is the sixth artist to be showcased in the ARTE BRA collection, coordinated by Automatica. The collection features contemporary Brazilian artists, especially those who have been working since the 1980s.

The new critical text is by Marcelo Campos, who, over many conversations with Frota, pieced together the paths he has taken around the country and the main issues his work brings forth. There are also republished texts by art critics Moacir dos Anjos, Agnaldo Farias, and Paulo Herkenhoff. Poet and musician Ricardo Aleixo sums up Frotaa��s creative process involving spools, after which his poem is named. In the artista��s notebook we can appreciate studies for projects yet to get off the drawing board, including drawings, technical appraisals, and mock-ups.

The interview gives a broader view of the artista��s main proposals over the years, covering everything from his working methods and position within the field of art to his formal and poetic experimentations. Finally, the timeline charts the key events in Eduardo Frotaa��s career, filling any gaps not covered in the rest of the book.
