This project Scientific Initiation focuses the long-term exposure of Popular Creativity Pavilion and is articulated with other research Scientific Initiation proposed jointly by research groups UNIFESP attached to the project "History of Art, Conservation and Restoration at the Pavilion Popular Creativity: a technical cooperation agreement with the Memorial da América Latina". This project of greater amplitude, registered in Base SIEX UNIFESP, is coordinated by Profas. Dras. Leticia Squeff, Manoela Rufinoni and Yanet V. F. De Matos, Department of Art History, and aims to promote the development of scientific research and training activities in the areas of art history, museology, conservation and restoration, from the study of the collection of Popular Creativity Pavilion. This is a technical cooperation agreement between institutions, as letter of support provided by the Fundação Memorial da América Latina attached to this project. Surveys of Scientific Initiation geared to the collection of Pavilion have the intention to enable and improve registration practices of collection and treatment; provided a first approximation of conservative nature, to curatorial projects and cultural diffusion on Latin American art and culture. Thus, individual investigations have a common base, as the references to understand this set of artifacts are similar (with respect to justification, synthesis of key literature and research method). However, each student involved in the project will be devoted to the detailed study of a specific aspect of the collection, whose cutting is specified and justified in this project. Opened in 1999, the Memorial da América Latina was conceived as a space dedicated to cultural and social dialogue, policy among the countries of the continent. The cultural project of the institution was closely followed by anthropologist Darcy Ribeiro and the permanent collection of folk art, the center of discussion of this project was primarily assembled by Jacques and Maureen Bisilliat on trips made during the year 1988, in addition to donations made directly the consulates of Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, Ecuador and Paraguay. Fifteen years after its inauguration, however, the Creativity Pavilion People today are several challenges related to the lack of professionals and resources. Much of the collection has no detailed scientific studies on its specifics, material characterization and relationship to the cultural context of origin; besides not being duly registered and organized on the basis of data available for consultation and dialogue with other institutions. Given this scenario, we started the aforementioned Technical Cooperation Agreement between Memorial and the University, seeking to achieve two main goals: first, to engage students in scientific practice UNIFESP associated with the study of collections of folk art; and secondly, to provide scientific support for the work done in the museum Creativity Pavilion (related to cataloging, preservation, dissemination and educational activities), opening a space for fruitful dialogue between institutions.
