'Sites Encountered': A Chorus of Five Artists at M+ Pavilion Ocula Report 'Sites Encountered': A Chorus of Five Artists at M+ Pavilion 21 Jun 2019 : Emily Verla Bovino for Ocula

Without punctuation, She Said Why Me, the title of May Fung's 1989 video presents itself as a statement, rather than a question.

Fabio Miguez

b. 1962, Brazil

Fabio Miguez began his artistic career in the 1980s when, alongside Carlito Carvalhosa, Nuno Ramos, Paulo Monteiro, and Rodrigo Andrade, he founded the artist’s space Casa 7. Miguez initially worked with painting, having participated in the 1980s in two editions of the Bienal de São Paulo: from that edition known as 'Bienal da Grande Tela' (1985), curated by Sheila Leirner, and the 20th edition of the exhibition (1989).

During the 1990s, he started to produce, parallel to his paintings, the series of photographs entitled Derivas, later published with the name Paisagem Zero in 2013. In the 2000s, Miguez started to develope three-dimensional works, such as the installation Onde (2006), Valises (2007), and Ping‑pong (2008), which expands his line of research and his medium of choice: painting. His degree in architecture brings to his work a constructivist influence that dialogues with concerns regarding scale, material, and figuration. The artist often deals with modular forms in relation to combinatory logic, employing repetitions and operations of inversion and mirroring.

Fábio Miguez born in São Paulo, Brazil, 1962, where he lives and works. He was participated in several biennials, such as: Bienal de São Paulo (1985 and 1989), 2nd Havana Biennial, Cuba (1986), 3rd Cuenca International Biennial, Cuenca, Ecuador (1991), and 5th Bienal do Mercosul, Porto Alegre, Brazil (2005), as well as retrospective shows, such Bienal Brasil Século XX (1994) and 30x Bienal (2013), both promoted by Fundação Bienal de São Paulo.

Main recent solo shows include: Fragmentos do Real (Atalhos)–Fábio Miguez, Instituto Figueiredo Ferraz (IFF), Ribeirão Preto, Brazil, 2018; Horizonte, Deserto, Tecido, Cimento, Galeria Nara Roesler, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2016, and São Paulo, Brasil, 2015; Paisagem Zero, Centro Universitário Maria Antonia, São Paulo, Brazil, 2012; Temas e variações, Instituto Tomie Ohtake, São Paulo, Brazil, 2008; Fábio Miguez, Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo, São Paulo, Brasil, 2003, exhibition accompanied by publication of a monograph on his work; and Fábio Miguez, Centro Cultural São Paulo (CCSP), São Paulo, Brazil, 2002.
