termina la semana con buen arte y vino!
Organizado por Adriana Meneses y Yuneikys Villalonga
Miami Circle Contemporary Art | Todos los sabados de 2:00 a 4:00pm
Art Talks es un espacio informal, bilingue, para disfrutar de buenas conversaciones sobre arte, con una buena copa de vino en la mano. Cada presentacion consta de hasta tres ponentes (artistas, curadores, historiadores del arte, et al.) que ofrecen amenas e instructivas reflexiones sobre un mismo tema artistico. Gracias a sus diferentes voces, los asistentes tienen la ventaja de poder comparar y contrastar ideas. Tienen tambien un espacio para hacer preguntas y compartir criterios de forma desenfadada.
Los temas escogidos ya sean historicos o contemporaneos, son siempre de total actualidad y proponen al publico herramientas basicas con las cuales navegar exitosamente una conversacion sobre arte.
