Antonio Dias and Painting after Conceptual Art
Sérgio B. Martins
Professor of History, Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC_RIO)
This talk explores two competing notions of “project” that informed Antonio Dias’s painting in the early 1970s, one relating to the unfinished project such as a subgenre of Conceptual art and the other to Italian debates apropos of the crisis of the historicity of modern art. The lecture is presented in conjunction with the University Galleries’ exhibitions Painting Situations: Sigfredo Chacón and Liliana Porter and Más situaciones: Sigfredo Chacón and Liliana Porter, which is part of the Institute for the Study of Latin American Art (ISLAA) Artist Initiative.
Additional sponsors: UF Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere (Rothman Endowment) and UF Center for Latin American Studies.
