Opening conference Between Calvino and Ferrigno: the memories of the body in the invisible city of Preta Quitandeira - with Joice Berth

Tickets available 30 minutes before the event.
Location: SESC Avenida Paulista - Avenida Paulista, 119, Bela Vista, São Paulo - SP, 01311-000.

From an analysis of Antonio Ferrigno’s emblematic work, Preta Quitandeira (1900), crossed by the peculiar cities of Ítalo Calvino, Joice proposes a reflection guided by Beatriz Nascimento’s perceptions on the black body, with its transatlantic memories still present, by the assumptions of epigenetics, co-creating a city apart, which resists because it starts, first, from the concept of body-territory.
