Atlanta Art Now is pleased to present
“Beyond Time, Space and Place,”
a discussion with Brazilian Curator Priscila Arantes
Monday, July 16, 2012 - 5:30pm
Rialto Center for the Arts Lobby
Continuing to build bridges between the Atlanta art scene and the international arts community, Atlanta Art Now, Possible Futures and Georgia State University’s Center for Collaborative and International Art (CENCIA), are pleased to welcome Brazilian Curator Priscila Arantes to Atlanta for a discussion on making art in urban and “post-urban” settings as outlined in the 2011 book, NOPLACENESS: Art in a Post-Urban Landscape.
Priscila Arantes is Critic, Curator, Professor and Manager of Cultural Projects in São Paulo, Brazil. She has been the Director and Curator of Paço das Artes (part of São Paulo State Cultural Council, Brazil) since 2007. She is a Professor of Art, Criticism and Curatorial Practices (undergrad and grad school) at Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo (PUC-SP). She graduated with a degree in Philosophy from the University of São Paulo and received a PhD in Communication and Semiotics from PUC-SP. She is currently conducting post-doctoral research about contemporary art at Penn State University.
Taking place on July 16th at 5:30PM in the Rialto Center for the Arts Lobby, the discussion will include artists and scholars from Georgia State University engaged in a lively debate with Arantes around issues of space and place as discussed in NOPLACENESS: Art in a Post-Urban Landscape, as real, imagined or engineered markers of identity.
“The purpose of Atlanta Art Now has always been to help give Atlanta a global presence and global ties,” said Cinqué Hicks, founding Creative Director of Atlanta Art Now. “With Ms. Arantes’s visit, we hope to strengthen the ties we have been building in Brazil for the past year.”
This event is free and open to the public. The Rialto is located at: 80 Forsyth Street, NW, Atlanta, GA 30303.
