The Latin American and Latino Art Forum at The David Rockefeller Center 
for Latin American Studies, Harvard University

Invites you to its upcoming speaker series event


Artist on their art

November 20, 6pm: CGIS Building, 1730 Cambridge Street. Room: S-153

Renowned for her site-specific installations in which the blending of 
written word and architectural elements are used for the critical 
interrogation of public spaces, Ana Maria Tavares will discuss her 
latest projects with fellow Brazilian and DRCLAS Visiting Scholar Dr. 
Claudia Calirman.

In collaboration with the MIT Office for the Arts

Programmed by the Art Forum’s Curator and divided into two thematic 
sub-series, Art Lab and Artists on their Art, the talks last usually one 
and a half hours, are conducted in English (unless noticed otherwise) 
and follow the same format: an invited main speaker and a panel of 
commentators—usually composed by members of the Harvard or the Greater 
Boston community.

Co-sponsored with the Cultural Agents Initiative, the Art Lab series are 
opportunities for artists and academics to gather and explore together 
the relevance of the slippery but productive relationship between arts 
and society which has shaped decisively, much of the artistic practice 
in Latin America since its formation. While our Artists on their Art 
series are opportunities for contemporary artists to present their work 
and engage in a critical analysis and discussion of its relevance in an 
academic forum.

All talks are recorded and later available on our website as podcasts.
