Brazilian contemporary art is receiving greater attention than ever on the international stage. Are the creative endeavours coming out of Brazil hitting a chord with contemporary issues? Or is it that Brazil is a new terrain to be claimed? What is Brazilian art’s position in mapping out contemporary art of the early 21st century? How are younger artists working in Brazil engaging with global processes of the art circuit yet also acknowledging that their work is shaped by local conditions and histories?

Join Brazilian art historian, curator and writer Paulo Venancio Filho in a two hour workshop on the current art scene in Brazil and its propositions for international discourse on contemporary art.

Room 319, Old Kirk Building, Gate 3, Kelburn Parade, Victoria University of Wellington.

Paulo Venancio Filho’s visit to New Zealand is supported by the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro; Adam Art Gallery, Victoria University of Wellington; the National Institute of Arts and Industry, University of Auckland, and the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, New Plymouth.
