“La crítica de arte, en otro momento, tenía un papel más central. Hoy en día, por el cambio político y social, se percibe que tiene otro papel en el campo” ––Entrevista con Carlos Guzmán, ganador del Premio Nacional de Crítica en 2014

“Contiguity and Incompleteness” is a curation effort by students in the Postgraduate Specialization in Art: Criticism and Curation at PUC-SP

Por: A.C. Videobrasil

This Saturday, beginning at 11 am, #GalpãoVB will show videos by Jonathas de Andrade, Clara Ianni and Mihai Grecu, among other artists in the Videobrasil Historical Collection. “Contiguity and Incompleteness” is a curation effort by students in the Postgraduate Specialization in Art: Criticism and Curation at PUC-SP, who picked through the Collection with guidance from professor Cauê Alves.

The Videobrasil Historical Collection, comprising artworks from all past Festivals, is the basis for the project, a PUC-SP/Associação Cultural Videobrasil partnership. The goal is to create a space in which to explore the formative role of the organizations involved, and to encourage the collective conception, discussion, and development of contemporary art curation projects.

Contiguity and Incompleteness is a snapshot of the artwork featured in the latest three editions of the Contemporary Art Festival SESC_Videobrasil. Their inspiration and general guidelines stem from the geopolitical South – Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, South and Southeast Asia and Oceania – and its humanitarian, societal, political, and historical issues. The pieces in the show hint at distinct modes of analysis of particular realities from countries like Bolivia (Claudia Joskowicz), Brazil (Clara Ianni), Chile (Claudia Aravena), China (Liu Wei), North Korea (Mihai Grecu), and Zimbabwe (Dan Halter).

Memory, migration flows, the social fabric, the failure of social and economic models and of the modern project, the passage of time, historicity, repression and resistance, the visibility/invisibility of ideological, political and historical issues, and social/political conflicts all permeate the artwork and legitimize the pertinacity of bringing to light subjects that systematically converge towards vulnerable, recurring aspects of contemporaneity and of History.

Before the showing at #Galpão, the program designed by students from the subject “Experimental project in criticism and curation” will be available as a map on PLATFORM:VB, Videobrasil’s online art research, experimentation and curating tool, where users can intersect and connect different artworks.

Debatable Screenings: A curated series of global contemporary video

Thursday, July 21 & 28, 7–9 pm
 Los Angeles Times Media Center
 Art Center College of Design

Single-channel video constitutes a prime vehicle for the widespread dissemination of discourse and critique. Its rapid availability through the Internet, as well as its low-cost infrastructural requirements enables exceptional possibilities for establishing networks of collaboration and transnational dialogue.

Debatable Screenings is a series of video programs organized by different curators from around the globe, considering the potentiality of collective agency, artistic and curatorial discourse, and intercultural dialogue. The interaction between these programs creates a stage for debate, where the nuances of the concept of screening are explored against the light of the individual discourse of artists and filmmakers.

In its inaugural cycle, Debatable Screenings features works by Doplgenger, Driant Zenelli, Igor Bošnjak, Endri Dani, Ibro Hasanović, Katarina Zdjelar, Lana Čmajčanin, Mladen Miljanović, Olson Lamaj, Saša Tkačenko, Siniša Ilić & Tina Gverović, Buen Calubayan, Raquel Friera, Lyra Garcellano & W. Don Flores, Elaine W. Ho & Lucio Castro, Mario Santamaria, Julia Sarisetiati, Christian Tablazon, Mahardika Yudha, Claudia Joskowicz, Laura Huertas Millán, Juan Manuel Echavarría, Carlos Guzman, and Felipe Steinberg.

Please join us at the Los Angeles Times Auditorium at Art Center on Thursday, July 21 for a presentation and talk with curators Maja Ciric and David Ayala-Alfonso, and the first screening program, “Lend Me Your Sofness”, curated by Renan Laru-An. Debatable Screenings will close on Thursday, July 28 with two more programs: “Potentials Within”, curated by Maja Ciric and “A Pilgrimage to the Ruins of the Future”, curated by David Ayala-Alfonso.

Debatable Screenings is possible thanks to the kind support of the Humanities and Sciences Department of Art Center College of Design.

This year Kurator Rex will delight us with “Psychic Response Strategy”, his most recent selection of video art which reunites fifty seven works of forty colombian visual artist and filmmakers from distinct generations and trajectories.

Psychic Response Strategy is a selection of video art that arises from the expectation raised by the probability of accessing a special category, a social welfare state called “Post-conflict”.

The VIDEOART PROGRAM will be screened continuously during the duration of the festival in a specially adapted exhibition space.

Faced with the sensitivity that is required to process a complex and massive event like the one announcing the post-conflict in Colombia, the proposed program of video art, which consists of a compilation of audiovisual projects of Colombian artists from different generations, not only presents a social memory or sequences of fiction, but also constitutes true psychic states that, through metaphors, become valuable documents of a social and human conflict.

In the first instance, video art is a residual material from psychic processes of the spectator, a spectator who we will later call artist. In the middle of the conflict, the artist is a spectator or an actor so fortunate, that he has had time on his hands, time to confront historical and social documents, to record, to appropriate them and set a personal document out of these, a direct and intimate response which emerges as an imperative need expressed by deliberate and experimental actions, as staging and video editing or montage.

In January this year the Government of Colombia announced the initial investment of 470 million dollars in the implementation of the first phase of the post-conflict. This phase has been called “Rapid Response Strategy” and would be implemented by the recently created “Ministry of Post-Conflict”.

We are used to hear statements from military and political language in the news, such as: “Governments should take charge of a -quick response- facing global threats of increasing terrorism and the spreading of the crisis” or “NATO will increase its -Rapid Response Force- up to 40,000 people”. Nevertheless, within the framework of this trascendent, collective event, the function of time expressions like: “Post”-conflict and “Rapid” Response cannot only be assumed as a part of a deep and urgent need to enter a new social state, but, above all in a new psychic state. Perhaps it could offers the possibility of a much less conventional peace than we usually see in the news.

‘A Thousand Visions: Contemporary Video from Latin America’

by: 1After320

1After320 Film Program: ‘A Thousand Visions: Contemporary Video from Latin America’

Latin America: David Ayala Alfonso

Defining Latin America beyond its geography and through the lens of culture is a challenge. The attempt to cast the denomination of a region have been recurrent for centuries, and has been closely related to independent processes and narratives. The idea of a Latin America lives in different versions that respond to an equivalent number of ends. There is a Latin America that lives in the political discourse of power that is in tension with other versions of the concept, particularly those in the context of cultural expression be it cinema, visual arts or music. Artists have thus developed discourses that call on an approach in presenting an idea of Latin America that is empathetic to what takes place within communities through nodes and networks of global exchange. Works in the selection potray a complex articulation of identities, filiations and oppositions that produce audio-visual discourse in the different countries of the region. Personal stories mingle with international connections and hybridizations, cultural contingencies and political utterances in depictions of contemporary Latin America.

Artists include: Felipe Steinberg, Carlos Motta, Laura Huertas Millan, Regina Parra, Claudia Joskowicz, Amanda Gutierrez, Carlos Guzman and Ana Tomimori.

Frente à Euforia / Frente a la Euforia

Frente à Euforia é um projeto de exposição realizado com apoio da FUGA – Fundación Gilberto Alzate Avendaño (Bogotá) e da Oficina Cultural Oswald de Andrade (São Paulo).


O projeto busca traçar uma reflexão crítica acerca das atuais situações sociais e políticas vividas no Brasil e na Colômbia. Entendendo a sensação de euforia e otimismo em relação ao futuro como produtos imaginários, interroga-se como o passado e a passagem do tempo são relidos em momentos de intensas transformações econômicas e sociais. O imaginário das mudanças e rupturas bem como sua crise, são interpelados através de uma recente e específica produção cultural dos dois países, que indicam possíveis modos de olhar, com reticência, aos fenômenos sócio-históricos dos últimos 15 anos.

A pesquisa conta com uma exposição, seminário, oficina e maratona audiovisual, resultados de uma residência artística realizada pelos curadores em Cali, Bogotá e Medellín.

Retrato de Familia. Catalejo II

Por: UTadeo

Inauguración: Martes, 21 de octubre 7pm
Museo de Artes Visuales – Universidad Jorge Tadeo Lozano
Curaduría: Carolina Ponce de Leon
Museografía: Juan David Laserna


Esta muestra, curada por Carolina Ponce de León, es la segunda versión de Catalejo, exposición de egresados del Programa de Artes Plásticas de la Universidad Jorge Tadeo Lozano. La exposición se presenta en el marco de las celebraciones de los 60 años de la Universidad y se inaugura el 21 de octubre a las 7pm en el Museo de Artes Visuales de la UJTL.

“La exposición reúne a cuarenta y cinco artistas de diferentes generaciones,  desde las primeras promociones, a mediados de los setenta, de la entonces Facultad de Bellas Artes hasta recién graduados del hoy llamado Programa de Artes. El resultado es un amplio espectro de tendencias estéticas y de prácticas representativas de la escena artística contemporánea….. Esta multiplicidad generacional y artística se toma como una oportunidad para concentrar temporalidades en un montaje integrador —un retrato de familia— En lugar de proponer una visión curatorial estructurada en función de asociaciones discursivas con el fin de sugerir una lectura específica, esta exposición presenta el conjunto de obras como un gran collage heterogéneo en la forma de una línea de tiempo no cronológico que altera la jerarquía tradicional de la experiencia expositiva, realzando el carácter fundamentalmente disímil entre las obras: unas tienden hacia la exploración de la contingencia social, otras hacia una poética de la imagen o de los materiales, unas se centran en experimentos formales, mientras que otras propician estrategias lúdicas como forma de activismo social.”
