The third edition of the Seminario Fundación Cisneros, entitled Promises of the Commons-authorship, copyright, and access in contemporary in art, will be held on Friday, November 15th, in the Concert Hall at the Cultural Complex Aula Magna of the Universidad Central de Venezuela (UCV) in Caracas.
For the second time, the Seminar combines the model of a symposium with the Pecha Kucha format, a creative presentation in which a work is outlined in a simple and informal manner. Promises of the Commons has as keynote speaker, Professor Terry Fisher, director of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University. Presenters include the following artists, writers, curators, and lawyers: Yona Backer, Maris Bustamante, Terry Fisher, Fabiana Garreta, Gala Garrido, Jill Magid, William McKay, Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento, Rafael Ortín, Lucas Ospina, Marion von Osten, Alexander Provan and Gerardo Zavarce.
From the Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid, Patricia Phelps de Cisneros talks about the collecion’s first major exhibition in Europe, La invención concreta, and its digital components: an iPad app available on iTunes for free, through which you can explore the works in the show from abroad, and a website that enhanced onsite visits through customized tours and audio guides.
On the occasion of the opening of the show La invención concreta [Concrete Invention], the first major exhibition of the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros in Europe, we present an excerpt from Patricia Phelps de Cisneros’ conference entitled “Colección privada, voación pública” ["Private collection, public functions"] for the Círculo Arte y Mecenazgo organized by Fundación Arte y Mecenazgo in Madrid, Spain.
