Studio Radar was created in 2020 by Manuel Vason and Rubiane Maia. The idea behind the project was to collect all the diverse skills and experiences accumulated over the years within a unique workplace. As artists we constantly feel the necessity to produce a qualitative documentation of our activities and at the same time we are constantly searching for new modes to express our investigations and our concerns. We share a great obsession for art making and we strongly believe on its transformational power. As the name of the studio suggests our ambition is to make visible and disseminate what we feel so passionate about.
 
ABOUT US
OUR PHILOSOPHY
Studio Radar believes the documentation and promotion of an art event should be a creative response in syntony with the artist’s intentions.
 
In an era of global digitalisation in which most of the artwork is encountered, experienced and analysed virtually, it is extremely important that the translation of an exhibition / live performance into images/videos is not assigned to a technical photographer but provided by an artist sensitive to the responsibility. Manuel Vason, co-founder of Studio Radar, has accumulated twenty years of experience and matured a methodology that brought him to collaborate with more than 250 artists internationally as well as various galleries, institutes and art festivals.
 
Specialised on the photographic documentation of live art, Vason considers any art presentation, installation or exhibition a particular event with a specific duration and, although technology is imposing a formatted standardisation on the way we record and share their representation, their uniqueness should be preserved by adopting dedication and originality.
 
WE BELIEVE IN CREATIVITY
WE BELIEVE IN EXCHANGE
WE BELIEVE IN DIVERSITY
 
Manuel Vason biography
 
Vason gained his technical proficiency assisting some of the most established commercial photographers of his generation. While working professionally and contributing to magazines such as Vogue, ID, Dazed & Confused and The Sunday Times, in 2003, he completed an MA on Fine Art at the Central Saint Martins in London. By shifting his focus from fashion to performance art, Vason was exposed to a critical perspective that questioned the authoritative power of photography and its fabricated objectivity. As a consequence, he shaped a unique art practice that takes in consideration the limits of the medium as resource for the exploration of a more ethical and sensitive approach to art documentation. In 2019, Vason completed a PhD by Publication that examined the complex relationship between live art and photography and how his unprecedented art practice contributed to existing knowledge. In 2020, he co-founded StudioRadar with the intention to pursue his greatest passion: to experience, document and radiate contemporary art.

FAQs

How long does it take to shot a virtual tour of an exhibition?


It depends on the complexity of the exhibit and the number of rooms. It took us two hours to shot a entire exhibition at the Barbican Art Centre consisting of two floors and fifteen rooms.




Why is there no price list on the site?


We provide ad hoc services and every assignment is unique and distinctive. What we do assure in all circumstances is to supply the best value for money.




How can a virtual tour benefit a gallery?


A virtual tour provides the ultimate documentation for an exhibition. A virtual tour includes a number of devises (video, photo, text, interview, pdf, links to external sites, etc) and informations all packaged on the same tool. A bispoke 360° virtual tour increments the number of viewers accessing the gallery from all over the world even when the physical space is closed to the public.




How fast is the delivery?


We know how important is to receive promptly the outcome of our work. We can deliver a selection of images only 2 hours after they have been taken, if necessary. In some occasions, like during a festival of live performances, we supplied a selection of colour-corrected and resized images at the end of the same day so the marketing team could share them on social media early next day.
