Please join us for a FREE talk by Pablo José Ramírez, presented as part of the Fall 2020 Visual Art Forum.
The Audain Visual Artist in Residence (AVAIR) and the School for the Contemporary Arts (SCA) are pleased to announce the Fall 2020 Visual Art Forum, a term-long series of free online public lectures by a diverse group of leading contemporary artists and thinkers from Canada, UK, Europe, Asia, and Latin America. The Visual Art Forum is presented as part of the SCA’s AVAIR program and forms a central element of our studio and seminar classes.
Pablo José Ramírez is a curator, art writer and cultural theorist who splits his time between Guatemala and London. He is the Adjunct Curator of First Nations and Indigenous Art at Tate Modern. His work revisits post-colonial societies to consider non-western ontologies, indigeneity, forms of racial occlusion, and sound. He holds an MA in Contemporary Art Theory from Goldsmiths, University of London. In 2015 he co-curated with Cecilia Fajardo-Hill the 19th Bienal Paiz: Trans-visible. He was a Guest Curator at Parsons/The New School in New York and at the CCA in Glasgow. Ramirez was the recipient of the 2019 Independent Curators International/CPPC Award for Central America and the Caribbean. Ramírez is the Editor in Chief and co-founder of Infrasonica.
The Visual Art Forum is organized by Kathy Slade in collaboration with SCA Visual Art faculty Sabine Bitter, Raymond Boisjoly, Elspeth Pratt, and Judy Radul.
The Audain Visual Artist in Residence program brings artists and practitioners to Vancouver who have contributed significantly to the field of contemporary art and whose work resonates with local and international visual art discourses. The visiting artists interact with the students and faculty of the School for the Contemporary Arts as well as the broader visual arts and cultural communities. The program is generously funded by the Audain Foundation Endowment Fund.
The School for the Contemporary Arts recognizes that we are on the unceded and occupied territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
