Program, July 15
5 p.m. - 10:30 p.m. | Julia Viana & Luciano Favaro: Exposição rodante solo sul (South Soil Mobile Exhibition)
Exposição rodante solo sul is a mobile and temporary exhibition that addresses the concepts of territory and border based on an experience of border crossing, taking as a device the presence of artists and the automobile they rode in while crossing the South American continent. The exhibition features videos, photographs, a garden, and a library.
5 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. | Clarice Lima: Coreografia (Choreography)
Coreografia is a device created to tense the involuntary choreographies that we use to move around in the spaces of galleries, museums, theaters, cultural centers, and other areas with a large flow of people.
6 p.m. - 6:10 p.m. | Jorge Lopes: O falecimento da escuta (The Death of Listening)
O Falecimento da Escuta is an action created based on movements that often appear in self-portraits. The artist interacts with soil (land), alluding to his ancestors. According to Lopes, the act of expanding and contracting his own body conveys a criticism of the nearly complete absence of black artists in today’s art field.
6:30–7:30 p.m. | Clarissa Sacchelli: Boas Garotas (Good Girls)
Stemming from the artist’s immersion in the Videobrasil Historical Collection, the piece investigates the relationships between video and performance, public and artwork, exploring eroticism as a means of questioning and stimulating the relationships between seeing and being seen as well.
7:30–9 p.m. | Talk with Clarissa Sacchelli
The artist discusses her work, in a debate with the participation of the curator Carolina Mendonça, Videobrasil’s researcher coordinator Ruy Luduvice, and the dance critic Isabelle Danto, cultural producer at Centre Georges Pompidou, France.
