Curator of Videobrasil’s next show is Malba’s new director
Spain’s Agustín Pérez Rubio, curator of Videobrasil’s upcoming show, titled Memórias Inapagáveis (Indelible Memories), has been named art director of the MALBA (Latin American Art Museum of Buenos Aires). The Valencia-born curator and historian will be in charge of the organization’s collection, programming, and editorial supervision.
Known for his curating based on research into collections, Agustín has been invited by Videobrasil to pore over the collection of 1,300-plus video works by artists from the geopolitical South, amassed over the course of three decades of the Contemporary Art Festival Sesc_Videobrasil.
In Memórias Inapagáveis, Agustín will provide his take on art and politics in the Videobrasil Collection. The show is the outcome of a partnership between Associação Cultural Videobrasil and Sesc São Paulo, and is set to open in late August at Sesc Pompeia, São Paulo.
