Curator’s Perspective: Rodrigo Moura


On Wednesday, November 9, Rodrigo Moura will give a lecture focusing on Inhotim, the outdoor contemporary art museum in Brumadinho, Minas Gerais, where he has been Curator since 2004, contextualizing the organization in a broader perspective of artistic practice in the last years, especially in Brazil. Moura’s talk will be introduced by New York-based art historian and Chief Curator at Inhotim, Allan Schwartzman.


The Curator’s Perspective is free of charge and open to the public, though seating is limited. To RSVP please contact Chelsea Haines at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).


The Curator’s Perspective: Rodrigo Moura has been made possible, in part, by grants from the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; by in-kind support from the Park Avenue Armory; and by generous contributions from the ICI Board of Trustees, ICI Benefactors Barbara and John Robinson, and ICI Partners and Patrons. Special thanks to ICI Trustee Sarina Tang for making this program possible.
