Debora Faccion Grodzki to moderate panel on Brazilian artist Antonio Dias
The recent arrival of Antonio Dias’s work archive to the IAC collection offers an exceptional opportunity to discuss – in light of the documentary material now publicly available – the legacy of this artist and his unique importance to current artistic debates.
This webinar is part of the exhibition “Antonio Dias / Archive / O Lugar do Trabalho,” on display at the Institute’s new headquarters until 18 December 2021 – featuring works, notes, sketches, letters, and other documents. Composed of two tables, it focuses on a specific – and particularly dense – period of the artist’s production, corresponding to his years of exile, between the end of 1966 and mid-1977.
The idea is to deepen reflection on the historical inscription of this artistic production and, at the same time, to approach it from the point of view of its radical actuality.
Panel 1 will feature the participation of speakers Izabela Pucu and Paulo Miyada, mediated by Gustavo Motta, on 17 November, at 7 PM.
Panel 2 will take place on 24 November, at 7 PM, and will feature the participation of speakers Sérgio Martins and Gustavo Motta, mediated by Debora Faccion Grodzki.
