Descripción del Profesional del arte
The female-only focus came naturally to Heloisa, the roots of which can be traced back to - and justified by - Heloisa’s heritage; as a young Brazilian female Heloisa has been greatly exposed to feminism in Latin America, thus making the connection between collector and collection very simple, fluid and straightforward. The early works from the collection includes some uncomfortable feminist artwork. The first artists collected were the Latin Americans, but over time, it occurred the desire of extending the geography of her artists beyond the region. While researching artists for the collection, some hidden treasures crossed Heloisa’s path, and she discovered her love for the works of female surrealist artists. The focus on feminine archetypes by women Surrealists paved the way for later generations of feminist art. She became intrigued by the fact that despite the high proportion of women members in the movement, these artists were often pictured as “muse of” ... or “wife of”, and the majority of them were overlooked at the time. In an effort to recognize and endorse their brilliancy several works from these artists were included in the collection. In addition, there is a desire to create a close dialog between those artists and the new generation. For that, she supports and accompanies young Artists in their works and practices, celebrating their development and achievements, for it is in the early stages of their careers that artists most likely need assistance. The collection of Heloisa Becker Genish does not have the pretension to resolve the problem of highlighting overlooked females in the art world, rather it strives to be the keeper of some highly-relevant and historical artworks, with hopes to pursue the artist’s aspirations and ultimately share with a larger and more substantial audience. Heloisa sits on the Board of Tate’s Latin American Acquisition Committee; she is a member of Whitechapel Gallery Commissioning Council; Patron at Chisenhale Gallery and she has been an avid supporter of many UK-based institutions, to include Camden Arts Centre; Modern Art Oxford; Nottingham Contemporary; Gasworks; Delfina and Fruitmarket Gallery. Furthermore, in Brazil, Heloisa is a member of Pivô Satellite Program; she supports Masp as Young Patron. As a supporter of Latin America art, she has donated a work from Leticia Parente to the Tate Collection, whilst also loaning works from Anna Maria Mailino (Whitechapel); Joahnna Unzueta (Modern Art Oxford); Teresa Margolles (Another Space), and Erika Verzutti (Nottingham Contemporary). Heloisa received a BA in Law in Brazil, she holds a Cordon Bleu Grand Diplome, Paris, and she is Christie's alumna, London. Currently residing in UK, Heloisa is married to Amos and is the proud mother of Olivia and Rafael.
