Art Beyond Art seminar with Verbier Art Summit Founder
São Paulo, Brazil
Thursday 6 September, 9:30am-5:30pm
The fifth International ARTE! Brasileiros Seminar presents discussions on the topic Art Beyond Art, addressing cultural changes in the 21st century affecting artistic production. Meet the Founder of the Verbier Art Summit, Anneliek Sijbrandij, speaking on the afternoon panel during the opening of the 33rd Bienal de São Paulo.
The 2019 Verbier Art Summit will be organised in partnership with acclaimed museum director Jochen Volz of Pinacoteca de São Paulo around the theme: We are Many. Art, the Political and Multiple Truths. In times of increasing uncertainty, we are in need of a deeper understanding of the multiplicity of narratives around us. Art has the potential to give voice to forgotten and silenced narratives, but also to envision entirely new possibilities. By bringing together artists, museum directors, activists and academics, the Verbier Art Summit will engage the art world in critical reflection on their social and political responsibilities. Join us on 1 & 2 February 2019 in Verbier, Switzerland, to explore the political power of art.
