Paulo Herkenhoff on the XXIV Bienal de São Paulo
Lecture Theatre, Royal College of Art, London
Paulo Herkenhoff will discuss his curatorial project for the XXIV Bienal de São Paulo (1998). Herkenhoff used the cultural concept of ‘antropofagia’ (cannibalism) as the basis for an international exhibition that is today considered as a landmark in the history of biennials.
This event is part of Afterall’s research and publication project Exhibition Histories, which focuses on exhibitions of contemporary art from the past fifty years that have changed the way art is seen and made.
Talk introduced by Mark Nash, Head of Department of Curating Contemporary Art, RCA. Chaired by Teresa Gleadowe, Series Editor, Exhibition Histories, Afterall.
A collaboration between Afterall, the RCA and TrAIN.
