'Caracas Centrifugal' - Jaime Gili
Jaime Gili will discuss the current context of the arts in Caracas, Venezuela. He will introduce the modernist legacy of artistic integration – developed by the work of Carlos Villanueva and epitomised by the city’s Central University – and the present political situation, the disappearance of museums and the growth of private initiatives. Points of focus will be spaces including Los Galpones art center, Jesus Fuenmayor, Oficina 1, Organización Nelson Garrido and La Carniceria; young art initiaves around the FIA art fair, including Desconfia and Jovenes con FIA; the work of individual arts in Venezuela including Suwon Lee, Luis Romero and Luis Salazar, and that of artists working abroad, including Alexander Apostol, Nayari Castillo, Hernandez Diez and Arturo Herrera.
