Event description

Description

New York-Caracas based Latin American art foundation Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (CPPC) has published the ninth book in its acclaimed bilingual publication series Conversations/Conversaciones. To present Waltercio Caldas in Conversation with/en conversación con Ariel Jiménez, the CPPC has invited the Brazilian artist Waltercio Caldas and the Venezuelan writer, curator and art historian, Ariel Jiménez to share their reflections with the NYPL public. They are joined by Director and Chief Curator of the CPPC, Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro, a specialist on the artist’s work and career who recently curated a solo show of Caldas' work at the Blanton Museum of Art, Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo, and Fundação Iberê Camargo.

Waltercio Caldas

Waltercio Caldas occupies a key role in the generation that bridges the innovations of the Concrete and Neo-Concrete artists of the 1950s/60s and today’s contemporary artists. Often simple in composition, the art of Waltercio Caldas invites a host of complex questions about perception and space. The conversation between Jiménez, Caldas, and Pérez-Barreiro will cover more than five decades of artistic production of one of Brazil’s most recognized contemporary artists. One of the issues discussed will be the challenges involved in representing the visual arts through photography and the printed page.

Copies of Waltercio Caldas in Conversation with Ariel Jiménez (Fundación Cisneros/Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, 2016) are available for purchase and signing at the end of the event.

Doors open at 5:30 PM.

This lecture was organized by the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Division of Art, Prints and Photographs in partnership with Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (CPPC).
