The NAGB presents the fourth instalment in our new Art, Culture and Exchange (ACE) Series, devoted to growing a healthy space for reciprocation, discourse and debate. This invitational brings established international artists, critics, and an extensive network of art professionals to present on their works in public lectures, informal talks and symposia. They will offer diverse perspectives and exciting interpretations of art, social/global issues, and innovations in culture.
The ACE Series continues the museum’s mission to empower its creative community with opportunities to engage in transformative encounters, which hold the potential to change the lives of young people and our public through robust art education programmes.
For our fourth lecture, we welcome Brazillian curator and researcher Paulo Miyada, who will bring some significant episodes from Brazilian art history and offer the audience an exchange: for every narrative about Nassau' culture and history that someone can bring to the table he will also tell about another artist or event from Brazil.
