Speaking at the Arts & Culture for Inclusive Cities Latin America – Europe 22 June ’16 —

BOZAR / CENTRE FOR FINE ARTS / Brussels, Belgium

Link: http://www.bozar.be/en/activities/114721-arts-culture-for-inclusive-cities

Cities in both Latin America and in Europe have become major global actors and strategic territories where tremendous social, political, economic, environmental and cultural changes are currently taking place. Both the EU and Latin America witness a myriad of public and private examples to regenerate public spaces and local communities. In that framework, culture and creativity can offer new perspectives and alternatives to challenges raised by social exclusion and urban development. This debate will discuss how the EU and Latin America can jointly address these issues to forge more inclusive and resilient cities.

The open debate follows a one-day experts’ seminar at BOZAR organized, jointly with Interarts, in the framework of the EU project ‘Culture and arts supporting social cohesion in Latin American cities - LAIC’ funded by the European Commission.

 Speakers:

  • Introduction by Paul Dujardin, BOZAR CEO, and Stefano Manservisi (TBC), Director General, DG DEVCO
  • Carlos Uribe : Architect, cultural operator and historian, Colombia
  • Edgar Endress : Artist, Chile/USA
  • Myriam Stoffen : Director of Zinneke, Belgium
  • Matteo Ferroni : Architect, Italy

Moderator: Mercedes Giovinazzo, Interarts

Installation " Jouet Guidant le Peuple"

 Olly Olly Gallery,  Fairfax VA.

Exhibit "Domestic Territories"

Curator: Sarah Irvine.

Northern Virginia Magazine article / link

 

For Jouet Guidant le Peuple, I used children’s toys as a form of demarcation in the gallery because this is how my son, Ian, defines his personal space in his room. For him, toys become a source of emancipation and a passage into a new persona that leads to independence, growth and new knowledge. In the context of the gallery, I am used the toys to claim space, but they are on the ceiling. This rethinks the concept of creating territory for an individual, and transforms the conversation into a discussion about mass consumption, the plastic material of the toys and consumerism.

[Re]Organizing the Arts

Creative coordination of people, money, and stuff over time.

Friday, November 13, 2015, 3:00 – 6:00 pm

Katzen Arts Center, Abramson Family Recital Hall

4400 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington, DC 20016

It has become an assumption and a habit that complex arts activities require permanent organizations, corporate structures, and exclusive choices between for-profit or not-forprofit. But creative people are questioning that assumption, and breaking that habit. American University's Arts Management Fall Colloquium explores the options beyond traditional organizations for aligning creative people, money, and stuff over time.
