Connecting at the margins: a discussion with Dr Eve Kalyva and Alice David

Join us for a talk that expands on the ideas and themes behind the work of León Ferrari and Hudinilson Jr.

We are delighted to be joined by Dr Eve Kalyva (University of Kent) and Alice David (Courtauld Institute of Art) who will discuss the strategies employed to circulate art and ideas of the Xerography and Heliography movements of the 1970s – 1980s in São Paulo, Brazil. Dr Kalyva, an expert on the work of Ferrari, will contextualise the artist’s practice during this period, in which the artist migrated to Brazil to escape a military dictatorship in his native Argentina. Alice David will discuss her ongoing research into the countercultural artistic practices of 1970s – 1980s São Paulo, with a focus on Hudinilson Jr. Together, they will discuss the roles both artists played within Xerography, an important but underexamined conceptual movement in Brazil.

The talk will be moderated by the exhibition’s curators, Dr Sarah Demelo and Diego Chocano.

Drinks reception to follow.

All welcome
