Friday Nights at NOMA: Edith Wolfe on Tarsila do Amaral

December 5th, 2014
6:00 PM

Location
New Orleans Museum of Art
One Collins C. Diboll Circle, City Park

Prospect.3 and the New Orleans Museum of Art invite you to a lecture with Edith Wolfe, “Tarsila do Amaral, Brazilian Cannibalism and the Problem of the Self as Other.”

Brazilian painter Tarsila do Amaral (1886-1973) and poet Oswald de Andrade (1890-1954) founded Brazil‘€™s notorious Cannibal (Anthropofagia) movement of the 1920s, which deftly navigated questions of ‘€œself‘€ and ‘€œother‘€ using ironic critiques of avant-garde Primitivism. Through an introduction to Amaral‘€™s art and life, Wolfe will explore three principle themes relevant to P.3 and NOMA‘€™s curatorial visions: the notion of ‘€œseeing oneself in the other‘€ elaborated by Franklin Sirmans as a central organizing motif for P.3; questions of globalization and ‘€œborderless seeking‘€ that inform contemporary international biennials in general and P.3 specifically; and the cultural similarities between New Orleans and Brazil.
