Global Brazil Conference Keynote Speaker: Roberto Conduru - 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Art historian and scholar Roberto Conduru will give the keynote talk, “Indices of Africa in Brazilian Art of the 1960s and 1970s,” for the Global Brazil Conference at Duke. Conduru has a cross-disciplinary approach to art history, building on visual anthropology, architecture and religion in order to examine how modernity was built in Brazil. He has published on many artists and architects, including Willys de Castro, Abraham Palatnik, Lucio Costa and Oscar Niemeyer. His recent book of essays, Pérolas Negras – Primeiros Fios (2013), examines Afro-Brazilian artistic and cultural connections. In his talk, he will discuss how Neoconcrete Brazilian artists built on African culture to create their works. Sponsored by the Global Brazil Lab at Duke’s Franklin Humanities Institute and the Duke Brazil Initiative.
