Presenting over sixty thematically linked exhibitions, “Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA” starts this month across various venues in Southern California. The project addresses issues about the relations between Latin American art and Latino heritage and culture in the US, and has a special place for Brazil in its program: at least four exhibitions are solely devoted to the country’s art and culture.
(Los Angeles, US) Seven PIPA Prize nominees – Jonathas de Andrade, Tamar Guimarães, Lucia Koch, Runo Lagomarsino, Renata Lucas, Lais Myrrha and Beto Shwafaty – are featured at “Condemned to be modern”, which starts this Sunday at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery. The group show exhibits works that criticize the history of modernist architecture in Latin America.
(Milan, Italy) The exhibition seeks to change perspective about the topic by questioning the codes, icons and images produced within a condition of subordination faced by many Latin American cultures, and liberating them from the equation that sets the aesthetic values through which we identify wealth and poverty still today.
(Milan, Italy) In the exhibition, found printed matter, texts, cultural objects and video, are arranged and intertwined through a multilevel display — a recurring method in the artist’s practice — where different narratives and materials gain new statuses, both as presences, narratives and representations.
(Amersfoort, Netherlands) The exhibition is prompted by the prospect of the Rio Olympics: the second global sporting event to be hosted by Brazil within a few months, following the FIFA World Cup in 2014. In the exhibition, Kunsthal KAdE asks what sort of country chooses to showcase itself in this way. Part of the answer to that question can be found in the work of the visual artists and artist collectives currently active in Brazil.
(São Paulo, Brazil) Galeria Leme presents the fourth site-specific project commissioned for SITU, curated by Bruno de Almeida, giving continuity to a broader research on ways of thinking and discussing the production of urban space through a dialogue between art, architecture and the city. By bringing this type of colonial engine back to the city, and by submitting it to a process of displacement, transformation and disappearance, the artist proposes a collision between two different historical epochs.
This is the last day of announcing the artists nominated to participate in PIPA 2016. Three bulletins were published daily, from Monday to Friday at 10am, 2pm and 6pm. There will be two more bulletins being published today. In this bulletin you will meet 5 nominees, find out who they are.
