    Daniel Senise: Spotlight talk

    3 December 2008

    Senise's Três caminhos(1995) shows us a conversation between two silhouetted women. Rather than representing words, Senise gives us a network of lines leaving the viewer to decide what paths the conversation is taking. Each week, Spotlight Talks will focus on a different work from the University's Collection of Latin American Art in the Albert Sloman Library.

    Brazilian Video Art

    17 November 2008

    ESCALA presents a programme of video made by Brazilian artists. Video is flourishing in Brazil and offers unique insights into aspects of the country's uneven development and the diversity of its hybrid culture. Through the eyes of video artists we can access the heterogeneous, and sometimes divergent, art production of the largest Latin American country.
