Art Sparking Social Engagement

May 28th, 2018 · Comments

Curators and artists whose passion is social engagement share their experiments in relational aesthetics—participatory performances, interactive installations, community events, and inside/outside exhibitions—invite viewers to become co-creators, to take ownership in the creative process.

Curators Jochen Volz (São Paulo Biennial, Live Uncertainty, 2016), Susan Cross (Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, Material World, 2010-2011, The Workers, 2011-2012), James Voorhies (Bureau of Open Culture, MASS MoCA, The Workers) and Stephanie Smith (SMART Museum of Art, FEAST, 2012, and Institute for Contemporary Art, Richmond, Declaration, 2018) share their perspectives, as do artists William Pope.L (Baile, 2016), Theaster Gates (Soul Food Pavilion, 2012) and Marinella Senatore (Estman Radio, ongoing).

Sao Paulo Biennal-Jolt Radio-7Sep2016

September 7th, 2016 · Comments

Today, we’re sharing one of the three shows we broadcast this month on Jolt Radio, Miami, from inside the exhibition pavilion of the 32ndSão Paulo Biennial! Our special guest is Pia Lindman, an artist from Finland whose project Nose Ears Eyes centers on the hut made of mud and bamboo that you see in the photo gallery below. Later in the show, Eduardo Navarro, an artist from Argentina, drops in to our ad hoc studio, to talk about his Sound Mirror. Pia and Eduardo are two of the biennial artists whose projects connect conceptually and physically with Ibirapuera Park, a gorgeous urban green space that surrounds the exhibition pavilion designed by the legendary architect Oscar Niemeyer.

Sao Paulo Biennal-Jolt Radio-06Sep2016

September 6th, 2016 · Comments

Today, we share our first-ever Fresh Art International radio broadcast, recorded live in Brazil! For three days only, we were livestreaming from inside the São Paulo Biennial pavilion on Jolt Radio. Our new hour-long show expands on conversations about creativity that we’ve been recording with contemporary artists, curators, filmmakers, and architects since 2011 for the Fresh Art International podcast.

The cultural context for our remote broadcast is Incerteza VivaLive Uncertainty. The title and theme of the 32nd biennial exhibition revolves around the political, social, and environmental uncertainties of contemporary life. Today’s show features participating artists Eduardo Navarro (Argentina); Ebony G. Patterson (Jamaica), and artist collective Opivivaro! (Brazil), as well as activists from the Aparelhamento movement, a group or artists protesting current politics in Brazil.

We hope you enjoy the show!
