As part of ICI’s Curator’s Perspective—an itinerant public discussion series featuring national and international curators—Jacopo Crivelli Visconti, the curator of the greatly-anticipated 34th Bienal de São Paulo, opening in September, will present on his vision and curatorial concepts behind the Bienal. Visconti is based in São Paulo. He curated the Pavilion of the Republic of Cyprus at last year’s Venice Biennale, as well as the Brazilian Pavilion at the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007. In 2014, he was the curator of the 12th Bienal de Cuenca, Ecuador. Other recent curatorial projects include: Memories of Underdevelopment, Museum of Contemporary Art of San Diego (2017); Héctor Zamora – Dinâmica não linear, Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil, São Paulo (2016); Sean Scully, Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo (2015). This program is organized with Americas Society and ICI Trustee Sarina Tang, a member of the International Advisory Board of the Bienal de São Paulo.
The Curator’s Perspective is a free, itinerant public talk series featuring established U.S. and international curators, who present on their work and research. It was developed to offer audiences ways to connect with timely information and a wide variety of international perspectives on contemporary art and curating today. The series sheds light on movements and models that are shaping the curatorial field today, addressing questions about art, culture, and the artists and exhibitions that curators look to.
The Curator’s Perspective series is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with City Council, by a grant from the James Howell Foundation, and by generous contributions from the ICI Board of Trustees and ICI Access Fund. This program is also made possible by ICI Trustee Sarina Tang.
