Brazil from el Fondo

25.08.15 26.08.15

Aware of the inestimable value and influence of Brazilian culture on the continent and taking advantage of its large catalog, the Fondo de Cultura Económica, together with the coordination of Rafael Toriz, organized the Brazil from the Fondo colloquium. It took place over two days and in four panels in which some of the main specialists in narrative, plastic arts, cinema and Brazilian poetry from Argentina participated.

On Wednesday August 26, Alicia Candiani, director of ´ace Project, was invited to the closing panel of the colloquium on Visual arts together with Bárbara Belloc. Candiani’s participation focused on Brazilian contemporary art and more specifically the artists from Brazil who participated in our International Program of Artistic Residencies: Amanda Coimbra, Cecilia Stelini, Marcia de Moraes, Eduardo Eloy, Patricia Francisco, Waléria Américo, Maíra Dietrich, Wesler Machado ALMA and Cristiano Sant´Anna, with the latter we developed a project in 2016.

The colloquium developed essential topics for the understanding of Brazilian culture, discussing poetry, narrative and Brazilian cinema, translation issues, the intersections and relationships between Brazilian and Argentine production.

With the aim of broadening the critical and intellectual dialogue between brother countries, the Economic Culture Fund, under the auspices of the Embassies of Brazil and Mexico, convened the first “Brazil from the Fund” conference on August 25 and 26 at the Center Cultural Brasil-Argentina (CCB-A) in Buenos Aires.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
