- Back to Conversations Program
- Fri 9 February, 2024
Conversations Hall | Centro Citibanamex
Raphaël Fonseca (Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Latin American Art, Denver Art Museum), Alberto Ríos de la Rosa (Curator at PAC Art Residency, Houston), Virginia Roy (Associate Curator, Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City). Moderator: Luiza Teixeira de Freitas (Curator of ZⓈONAMACO SUR).
In this thought-provoking talk, we will explore the profound concepts of generosity and care within contemporary art, as well as their transformative potential in our lives and communities. Through engaging dialogues and insightful examples, the speakers will examine how artists, curators, and patrons alike are redefining the boundaries of generosity, innovative collaborations, and socially-conscious initiatives, from acts of kindness to philanthropy; this talk will dive in the fundamental role that care plays in nurturing our connections with others. How acts of care and empathy within the contemporary art scene can transform the way we experience art but also contribute to a more compassionate and interconnected artistic landscape.
