Felipe de Ávila will address the artist as an agent operating in the space to question notions of society, territory, and culture, considering the boundaries of language, tradition, and market. De Ávila will approach the topics of ecology and geopolitics present in the materiality of his work, and the concept of structure as the core aspect of his artistic process, besides other cultural aspects that can influence one’s production.
