PCAI is happy to announce George Drivas' participation in the 21st Contemporary Art Biennial Sesc_Videobrasil | Imagined Communities.
This year's exhibition and public program of events dedicated to the production of the Global South is to be held from October 9, 2019, through February 2, 2020, at Sesc 24 de Maio, in São Paulo.
A total of 2,280 artists from 105 countries submitted works to the 21st Biennial Open Call. Formed by the artistic director Solange Farkas and the trio of curators Gabriel Bogossian, Luisa Duarte, and Miguel López, the curatorial team was in charge of both the selection and the choice of guest artists. Also part of the selection jury were the curators Alejandra Hernández Muñoz, Juliana Gontijo and Raphael Fonseca.
Established by Solange O. Farkas in 1991, Associação Cultural Videobrasil was born of the desire for an institution to house a growing body of artworks and publications amassed since the first edition of Contemporary Art Festival Sesc_Videobrasil, in 1983. Ever since, Associação has been working systematically to activate this collection, comprising artworks from the world’s Geopolitical South – Latin America, Africa, Eastern Europe, Asia and the Middle East –, video art classics, own productions, and a vast collection of art publications.
Apart from the Festival, held every two years, Associação carries out several actions geared at researching, publicizing and mapping out its collection: international art shows; travelling exhibitions; publications about contemporary art and culture; TV shows and the Videobrasil Authors Collection documentaries; seminars, workshops and meetings with artists and researchers, in constant interaction with various fields of knowledge; and artist residency programs, in connection with a wide-ranging network of international collaborators.
