Conversas em Gondwana – Group Show
Centro Cultural São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil07 Feb 2019 - 07 Apr 2019
Conversas em Gondwana is a platform for research and experimentation in contemporary art and features collaborative works developed over a year by five pairs of Brazilian and South African artists.
The show also has a selection of works entitled Archipelago, from several other artists. Gondwana is the name of the supercontinent that about 200 million years ago united the continental masses of what we now call South America, Africa, Antarctica, Australia and India. The project evokes this distant geological past in order to intensify the flow of practices and research among artists, curators and researchers from these regions.
