Ana Paula Cohen is the third guest in ICI’s new curatorial talk series wherein an international curator distills the current happenings in contemporary art, including the artists they are excited by, exhibitions that have made them think, and their views on recent developments in the art world.

Ana Paula Cohen is an independent curator, editor and writer based in Brazil. She is currently a curator in residence at the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College.  Cohen was the adjunct curator for the 28th Bienal de São Paulo titled In Living Contact (October-December 2008); previous to that she served as co-curator for the 2007 project Encuentro Internacional de Medellín 07 in Colombia, in which she created, in collaboration with other artists and curators, a new center for contemporary art – La Casa del Encuentro. Cohen has been a contributor to several art magazines, such as Frieze, ArtNexus and Exit Express, and has written for many art publications, concerning the work of artists such as Goldin & Senneby, Javier Penãfiel, Rosangela Rennó and Oscar Muñoz, and Cildo Meireles. Cohen has organized many conferences and talk series, including most recently “History as a flexible matter: artistic practices and new systems of reading” (November 2008) for the Bienal de São Paulo.

The event is free of charge and open to the public, though seating is limited.

This event, and all of our Fall 2009 The Curator’s Perspective talks, were made possible by the generous support of Leila and Mickey Straus.
