(New York, USA)
This month, on July 19th and July 23rd, two important talks will occur in New York. The first one will be promoted by Residency Unlimited (RU), the institution where Arjan Martins, PIPA 2018 winner, is now attending a Residency Programme as part of his prize. Next Friday, RU curator in residence, Elena Ishchenko, and ICI’s Director of Programs, Amanda Parmer, discuss self-organized art initiatives in Russia which create an original landscape of art production, representation, distribution, and discussion in the situation of lack of state and private art institutions. Curator, writer, and editor, Ishchenko is involved in a number of self-organized non-profit initiatives. During the talk, she will share her experience of creating and developing these spaces and the impact that self-organized art initiatives have had on the Russian Contemporary Art landscape.
On July 23, Brasil Summerfest presents “Bridging the Gap: Brazilian Contemporary Art in New York” to discuss about present-day Brazilian contemporary Art. The panel will be moderated by Nathalie Angles of Residency Unlimited and will include distinguished artists, curators and collectors. Arjan Martins, PIPA 2018 winner, is invited, as well as Gisela Gueiros, Larissa Ferreira, Apolo Torres, Rafael Bqueer, Georgiana Rothier and Bernardo Faria. This event will be held in partnership with the Consulate General of Brazil in New York.
