In celebration of The World's Game: Fútbol and Contemporary Art, join PAMM Assistant Curator Jennifer Inacio and artists Igor Vidor and Jaime Lauriano for a discussion about their work in relation to the exhibition—an exploration of how the sport has stimulated artists to reflect upon its implication on society.
Having been a professional soccer player, Vidor uses his artwork to compare the topographical differences between professional and amateur fields—thinking metaphorically of situations that produce tensions between conditions of privilege and disadvantage. Lauriano's Morte Súbita (Sudden Death, 2014) references the year 1970 in Brazil—a time in which the most deaths occurred under the military dictatorship and a moment in which Brazil's success in the 1970 World Cup was simultaneously being used for political gain.
Coffee and light breakfast fare will accompany the program. This event is exclusive to all levels of members. Registration is required, space is limited. The cost is $16 per person. Patron and above levels is complimentary.
