Since 1994, the Videobrasil On Tour programs have taken the winning works from the Contemporary Art Festival Sesc_Videobrasil to different cities after the exhibitions held in São Paulo. The project is one of the Festival’s strategies to fulfill two major goals: publicizing the winning artworks and artists by lengthening the time the works remain on display; and helping to form new audiences, thus broadening the contemporary art circuit.
In keeping with the Festival’s programming template, the On Tour programs include Public Programs and Educational Actions that encourage reflection upon the artworks and themes featured, in relation to the local contexts and based on interlocution with guest artists, curators and critics. Through these meetings and other open activities, the On Tour programs enable the activation and novel interpretations of the exhibitions.
Over the past few years, On Tour programs have been featured in dozens of cities across the five regions of Brazil – including Porto Alegre (in the state of Rio Grande do Sul), Campo Grande (Mato Gross do Sul), Salvador (Bahia), Teresina (Piauí), Rio Branco (Acre) and Manaus (Amazonas), and at several Sesc units throughout the state of São Paulo. The Festival’s editions have also travelled to foreign cities such as Manizales (Colombia), Guatemala City (Guatemala), Santa Cruz de la Sierra (Bolivia), Quito (Ecuador) and Flic-en-Flac (Mauritius islands).
