Fundación Proa and the Brazilian Embassy in Argentina announce a symposium to be held on the occasion of the exhibition Art of Contradictions. Pop, Realisms and Politics. Brazil – Argentina 1960, curated by Paulo Herkenhoff and Rodrigo Alonso. The encounter deepens the exhibition’s investigation and proposes “a reflection on the relationships, and points of convergence and divergence, between art produced in Brazil and Argentina during the 1960s, in keeping with local and international sociopolitical contexts. The symposium emphasizes the uniqueness of the vision and thinking of artists from these countries while attempting to capture the complexity of the period and avoid superficial or stereotyped readings in order to recover this aesthetic and political production for art history.”

The programming is subject to modification.
A screening of the film Um domingo com Frederico Morais will be held.

Thanks to the support of the Brazilian Embassy and Tenaris, the limited-capacity symposium will be free of charge.

Coordinator: Isabel Palandjoglou.
