1.In your opinion what is the role of a museum?

For me, the museum has the main role of cultural, historical, social and educational formation for all people, regardless of their ages.

From the artist’s point of view, having a work that is part of a museum’s collection means reaching the possibility of showing the research and expanding the dialogues with the public, bringing new discussions to the exhibited work.

2.What are your favorite museums in the world? Why?

There are many, it is difficult to give that answer, but of the museums that I have been personally, I believe that in Brazil, MASP – Museu de Arte de São Paulo, which in addition to the undisputed architecture of Lina Bobardi, currently establishes a curatorial pole and creates very relevant discussions between art and current themes.
