Unerasable Memories On Tour in Argentina and Spain
In 2015, the first major exhibition to draw from Associação Cultural Videobrasil’s collection will be touring the world, beginning with Argentina and Spain. Curated by Agustín Pérez Rubio, Unerasable Memories – A Historic Look at the Videobrasil Collection will be presented at Museu de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (MALBA) from June to August, then at Museo de Arte Contemporánea de Vigo (MARCO) from September 2015 to January 2016. In 2015, the exhibition with also be presented in Mexico and Germany, in dates and locations to be confirmed, and in other countries in 2016.
First shown at Sesc Pompeia, in São Paulo, from August to November 2014, Unerasable Memories stems from Pérez Rubio's immersion into the Videobrasil Collection, currently comprising roughly 1,300 video works, performance recordings and video-installations. Pérez Rubio culled 18 pieces that were produced between the 1980s and recent times that revisit historical episodes and conflicts from the perspectives of such renowned artists as Bouchra Khalili, Coco Fusco, Jonathas de Andrade, León Ferrari, Rosângela Rennó, Sebastián Diaz Morales and Walid Raad, among others.
