SECOND LECTURE SERIES FOR COLLECTORS, CRITICS, AND CURATORS INTERESTED IN BROADENING THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF TODAY’S ART
The second Panorama of Contemporary Latin American Art series, organized by the Art Department of Torcuato Di Tella University and the arteBA Foundation is entitled Collecting Strategies. Its aim was to present various collecting paradigms through the insight of some of the current Latin American scene’s most influential curators.
The three curators invited for this series were Patrick Charpenel (Mexico), Sofía Hernández Chong-Cuy (Mexico and USA) and Adriano Pedrosa (Brazil). Each of them reflected upon the various strategies and artistic, institutional and geopolitical models implicit in the art collections they are involved with, and each, at the same time, attempted to analyze particular cases, in order to set out general guidelines for a public that is just beginning to collect.
Among the themes of their talks were collections based in various countries of Latin America, collections of Latin American art based in other countries, and new paradigms of collecting that aim to discard the notion of a national or regional art.
The series closed with a presentation by the collections advisor Ana Sokoloff (Colombia and USA), who provided an up-to-the-minute panorama of the situation of the Latin American art market.
There was an admission fee, with 10 CCEBA [Spanish Cultural Center of Buenos Aires] scholarships available for art professionals. Proceeds from this series went to the scholarship fund of the Artists’ Program of Torcuato Di Tella University.
