Brand promotes “Diverse Weeks”, with a proposal to connect the 2022 movement with transformations and advances in diversity issues
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the “Modern Art Week of 1922”, the operator Vivo created “Semanas Diverse”, a series of debates between the 17th and 19th of February that seeks to connect the 1922 movement with the transformations through which the country went through during this period from the perspective of diversity. The meetings take place at Teatro Vivo, from 7pm to 9pm, with free tickets available via Sympla and Vivo Valoriza.
This Thursday (17), the opening of “Semanas” discusses the insertion of trans people in the artistic, social and political systems today, with the presence of Digg Franco, co-founder of the Chama house and political-cultural articulator, Patrícia Wagner , curator, critic and master in Visual Poetics by ECA-USP and Marina Mathey, actress, singer and director of ProduTrans with the singer’s pocket show.
On Friday (18), the subject is “Decolonial Relations” and the struggles that non-white groups have for insertion into the systems of art and design. The meeting will have the participation of drag queen Amazonian Uyra Sodoma (Emerson Munduruku), who defends nature and socio-environmental sustainability in her works, designer Kevelin Oliveira, who promotes reflection on black culture and LGBTQIA+ rights, and Fernando Oliva, PhD in Art Criticism and History from USP and member of the MASP curatorial team.
The night will also feature a performance by the group “Poetas Ambulantes”, presenting contemporary marginal poetry with excerpts from Paulicéia Desvairada, by Mário de Andrade.
On the last day of the event, Saturday (19), “Semanas Diverse” brings “Modernisms”, a reflection on the unfolding of Modernisms in the early 20th century from different perspectives. Participating are the poet Sérgio Vaz, activist, creator of Cooperifa and the Modern Art Week of the Periphery; Vinícius Spricigo, professor at the Department of Art History at UNIFESP; Renata Bittencourt, Educational Coordinator at Instituto Moreira Salles; and Lisette Lagnado, curator of the 11th Berlin Biennale, art critic, researcher and writer.
