Great news! Our program Global Visions: Insights into International Moving Image Art continues with the visit of its curator. After a successful first exhibition, we now welcome Kelly Gordon, moving image art expert and former curator of film and media at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum (Washington DC). Our guest will be in Venezuela from April 14 through 18 to offer a workshop and public talks in Caracas and Maracaibo, thanks to the support from the Embassy of the United States of America.
The Best of Best workshop will take place at Secadero 3 of Hacienda La Trinidad Parque Cultural on April 14 at 14:00. It will include a tour through the trends that have shaped the history of film and video art, as well as some recent works that stand out in the global panorama. What this field entails and what exhibiting it involves will also be discussed. The talk will be free of charge and addressed to artists, researchers, and curators, as well as art, film, literature, history, and architecture students. Seating will be limited, so interested parties must write to email@example.com to secure a place.
On the same day, an open conversation will be held at 18:00 inside the G17 of Los Galpones Art Center. Best of Now is the title of this encounter, in which Gordon will walk us through the moving image art works and creators that currently stand out most in the international scene.
Next, Kelly Gordon will be visiting the city of Maracaibo, where she will coincide with Jonathan Monaghan’s solo exhibition in the hall of MACZUL-Museo de Arte Contemporáneo del Zulia. On Saturday, April 16 at 11:00, Gordon will offer a talk at the Museum where everybody is welcome.
With the arrival in Caracas of this renowned US curator and researcher, our Global Visions program continues to foster experiences and encounters stemming from moving image art. We continue to be accompanied by our allies at Hacienda La Trinidad Parque Cultural, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo del Zulia, and this time we are also joined by Centro de Arte Los Galpones.
