Event Cancelled – FRESH MILK XXII – A Potlatch of Histories: Lessons on Brazilian Art

Due to unforeseen circumstances related to travel, Paulo Miyada’s trip to Barbados and the event FRESH MILK XXII will no longer take place this week as planned. We apologize for any inconvenience caused, and we hope to make arrangements to reschedule for later in the year.

Thank you for your understanding, and wishing you all the best.
The Fresh Milk Team

The Fresh Milk Art Platform is pleased to invite you to FRESH MILK XXII – A Potlatch of Histories: Lessons on Brazilian Art, taking place on Thursday, June 6th, 2019 from 7:00pm – 9:00pm at Fresh Milk, Walkers Dairy, St. George, Barbados. This event will feature a presentation by São Paulo-based curator Paulo Miyada, chief curator of the Tomie Ohtake Institute and the adjunct curator of the 34th São Paulo Biennial (2020).

Paulo will address a few significant chapters from Brazilian art history and offer the audience an exchange: for every narrative about Barbados’ culture and history that someone can bring to the table, he will also share information about another artist or event from Brazil. Join us for an evening of rich cross-cultural discussion and knowledge transfer!

This event is free and open to the public. Directions to Fresh Milk can be found on the ‘About Page’ of our website.
