Marcelo Brodsky in conversation with Aimé Iglesias Lukin, director and chief curator of Visual Arts.
Join us live on Instagram from your cell phone, or watch on YouTube after, for a series of remote visits to artists' studios to bring Americas Society's Visual Arts public programs to your home. Every other Wednesday this month, contemporary artists will dialogue with our Visual Arts department about their work and practice.
About the artist:
Marcelo Brodsky is an international visual artist with work focused in visual language, memory and human rights. His work combines text and images to convey meaning and to build up alternative narratives. In 1996-1997 he edited and exhibited the photographic essay Buena Memoria (Good Memory) based on the effects of state terrorism in Argentina. The iconic class picture is now shown permanently in the school's main hall as part of its history. He is the founder of the Parque de la Memoria and a member of its board. This Parque is a large monument and art exhibition space to honour and remember the victims of Argentina's military dictatorship. He is also the founder of Visual Action, an NGO dedicated to transferring visual expertise to other NGOs.
