José Roca, Chief Curator and Artistic Director for Philagrafika 2010 will be on campus this week.

Deja vu you say? NO! He was snowed out back in February.

José Roca kicks off his visit with an Art @ Lunch lecture in Brown 320 MAIN 110 on Wednesday, April 7th at 12:30.

From the Philagrafika Website:

José Roca is a Colombian curator working out of Bogotá and Philadelphia, where he is currently Artistic Director of Philagrafika 2010. He managed the arts program at the Banco de la República in Bogotá for a decade, establishing it as one of the most respected institutions in the Latin American circuit.

Roca was a co-curator of the I Poly/graphic Triennial in San Juan, Puerto Rico (2004), the 27th Bienal de São Paulo, Brazil (2006), the Encuentro de Medellín MDE07(2007), and of Cart[ajena], a series of urban interventions in Cartagena, Colombia (2007). He was a jury for the 52nd Venice Biennial (2007).

Recent curatorial projects include: Muntadas: Mechanisms of the Image, Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo, Brazil (upcoming 2010); Välparaíso, a series of urban interventions in Valparaíso, Chile (upcoming 2010); Other Florae, Galeria Nara Roesler, São Paulo, Brazil (2008); Phantasmagoria: Specters of Absence, traveling exhibition co-organized by iCI and the Museo de Arte del Banco de la República (2007-2009); Botánica Política, Sala Montcada/La Caixa, Barcelona (2004); Traces of Fridayart, tourism, displacement, ICA, Philadelphia (2003).

In addition to his lecture, José Roca will be conducting a number of critiques in the Printmaking Department.  Critiques will take place from 2:30-5;30 on Wednesday, and 10-12 / 1-3 on Thursday, in the 3rd fl computer lab (and possibly 1st floor Etching area… we shall see!)

Those receiving critiques have already been chosen, but we are encouraging anyone interested (this means YOU) to sit in and participate at these times.

Critiques will be approximately 45 minutes long.

If you are remotely interested in the world of contemporary print, you will be sorely disappointed if you miss this.
