Five Openings, ursa

postOpening Dec 16, 9pm / until Jan 27
Roundtable with Yehuda Safran on Jan 8, 7pm

How can a book determine the construction of an image?
And how in turn can an image determine the construction of a book?
What if past the ‘linguistic turn’ of the 1960s and the ensuing ‘iconic turn’ of the 1980s we could now look at the overlap of texts and images as a productive stance for the interpretation of phenomena?
With these questions in mind we took CAAA’s challenge to use Yehuda Safran’s library to open five new photographic projects.
We have brought to the table our images and the library’s books, and thus set the room for a discussion on ideas.

QUEER CITY / CIDADE QUEER, by Danila Bustamante


October 14, 5pm

36 min

Bodies that listen, dance, resist, manifest and become visible in our contemporary city. Bodies that dance the sounds of funk music, rap, samba, voguing, waacking, among other sonic styles of contestation, resistance and struggle.  Through talks, dinners, experiences and exchanges, a city seeks to discuss how we live, work, share and survive the different LGBT + stories and realities … And how we understand all this through a queer, intersectional and non-normative lens?

The mini-documentary “Cidade Queer - Queer City”, directed by Danila Bustamante takes the name of the site-specific, one-year collective curatorial process in São Paulo, Brazil from 2016-17 by and ArtsEverywhere/Musagetes.
