This Friday 21 January 2011, 10am–5pm I have been invited to address a conference at the RCA entitled Brazil: The Cultural Contemporary. Looking forward to meeting my fellow speakers as the itinerary looks very interesting.
The free one-day conference is chaired and convened by Martina Margetts, Senior Tutor, Critical & Historical Studies. The conference aims to inform a UK-based audience about Brazil’s visual culture, with a focus on areas of craft, design and social change. Speakers include Tristan Manco, designer and author of Graffiti Brasil, Frederico Duarte, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation Scholar and Justin McGuirk, award-winning design writer. Keynote address Craft, Design and Social Change in Brazil is by leading Brazilian design writer and curator Adélia Borges.
