MARTINS, Mirian Celeste Ferreira Dias. Arte, só na aula de arte?. Educação. Porto Alegre [online]. 2011, vol.34, n.03, pp.311-316. ISSN 1981-2582.

The question asked by the title of the article is the theme of the conversation which the text wishes to share. It is an invitation to take pathways in encounters with art, with the word “esthetics”, with the potential of contemporary art, with the “look of the French Mission”, which insists on considering art as the expression of beauty. Along this pathway, the proposal of reading an incomplete image tries to provoke conceptual comings and goings in the perception of the very act of reading offered as an educational curatorship in the procedures of cultural mediation. Triggering, unlocking. Is not this the main task of cultural mediation: opening what was locked, freeing a look fixed on what is already known to see beyond? Is not this the meaning of esthetic education? Would not the territories of art of art & culture, instigating rhizomatic thinking be the esthetic nourishment to go beyond known works of art and the artists’ biographies? When broadening horizons, the reader has to provide the answer: After all, art only in the art class?

Keywords : Art; Cultural Mediation; Territories of Art & Culture; Esthetic Education; Life.
