The Curator’s Perspective: Rodrigo Moura

Co-hosted by Park Avenue Armory and Independent Curators International


November 9, 2011

Doors Open at 6:30pm, Lecture Begins at 7:00pm

On Wednesday, November 9, Rodrigo Moura will give a lecture focusing on Inhotim, the outdoor contemporary art museum in Brumadinho, Minas Gerais, where he has been Curator since 2004, contextualizing the organization in a broader perspective of artistic practice in the last years, especially in Brazil. Moura’s talk will be introduced by New York-based art historian and consultant to Inhotim, Allan Schwartzman.

Rodrigo Moura is a curator, editor and art writer. He has been Curator at Inhotim (Minas Gerais, Brazil) since 2004, where he played an important role in the acquisition of works by artists such as Artur Barrio, Ernesto Neto, Iran do Espírito Santo, Jorge Macchi, Marepe and Victor Grippo, among others. In the collection development of Inhotim, he has prioritized the acquisition of works by younger artists, such as Alexandre da Cunha, Allora & Calzadilla, Laura Lima and Marcellvs L. He was formerly Assistant Curator (2001-2003) and Curator (2004-2006) at Museu de Arte da Pampulha, in Belo Horizonte, where he organized solo shows by Damián Ortega, Ernesto Neto, Renata Lucas, José Bento and Fernanda Gomes, among more than 20 solo, site-specific and commissioned exhibitions. He has extensively written on arts and culture for Brazilian newspapers and international art press.
