Brazil Contemporary Event at the V&A – Part 5 Jochen Volz

September 15, 2014

Part 5 – Introduction of the Principles behind the Imhotim Contemporary Art Museum

Jochen Volz, Serpentine Gallery, Head of Programmes; Instituto Inhotim, Curator



With the generous support of the Embassy of Brazil in London, the Victoria and Albert Museum  brings together practitioners, writers, academics and curators working in Brazil and the UK in the fields of art, design and architecture for a round table discussion.

Against a backdrop of economic growth and cultural change, questions of Brazilian identity and cultural vernacular in arts and design emerge. Invited speakers will detail, dissect and subvert the notion of a Brazilian vernacular through discussions on early and contemporary modernisms in relation to design, and the decentralisation of the Brazilian arts locus.
