Add to Calendar 01/11/2021 05/12/2021 Europe/Brussels PCAI partners with Sao Paulo Biennial and CoMuseum Athens

Throughout 2021, PCAI continues its successful collaborations with reputed international institutes and museums and launched new partnerships with established international organisations.

PCAI partnered with the 34th Sao Paulo Biennial supporting the participation of Ecuadorian artist Adrián Balseca at the 34th edition of the exhibition, titled Though it’s dark, still I sing. Balseca presents the works Medio Camino and BadYear at the Bienal Pavilion, and the solo show Plantasia Oil Company at Casa do Sertanista / Museu da Cidade de São Paulo, Brazil.

Balseca's work often deals with issues very specifically related to the context of Ecuador and the country’s recent history, but which in a certain way are common throughout the Latin American continent. Over the course of the last few years, the main focus of his research has been the extractive dynamics and its environmental impact, a central issue in the politics of various countries in South American countries, including Brazil, and which results are visible and dramatically known. One of his most poetic works in this sense is Grabador fantasma [Ghost recorder] (2018), in which Balseca's concerns with the environmental crisis in Ecuador and the planet become sharper and, moreover, he seeks to transpose the realm of art. 

PCAI collaborates with the Benaki Museum, the British Council, the U.S. Embassy, and the British Embassy in Greece on the occasion of the 11th International CoMuseum Conference: (Re)Positioning the Museum of Tomorrow, which will take place on December 1-3. The virtual conference is organized under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture and Sports, the Municipality of Athens, and ICOM Greece.

Museums and cultural organizations are in a unique position in their communities and in the world to help tackle modern challenges related to social inequality, health and safety, and the climate emergency. The CoMuseum 2021 will explore the repositioning of museums and cultural institutions through a human-centered approach, drawing upon new tools, skills and leadership models.  Some of the topics that the CoMuseum 2021 will address include sustainability and digital strategies; the future of collections, curating and storytelling; the social impact of cultural organizations; and museums’ roles in the climate crisis.

During the eleventh installment of this annual conference, professionals from international museums and cultural organizations, artists, civil society representatives, educators, and academics will examine the above issues through keynotes, panel discussions, fireside chats, workshops and masterclasses.
