Porto Vista Hotel is pleased to welcome the first Curator in Residence, Brunno Silva. The Berlin-based Independent Curator will live and work on site at the Porto Vista Hotel in San Diego from May 6, 2019 through July 18, 2019. While in residence, Silva will explore critical conversations surrounding the moving-image through a series of lectures, seminars, studio visits and exhibitions that are free and open to the public. From Warhol to Hito Steyerl, Silva will examine how video art has altered the art production landscape.
Brunno Silva (b. São Paulo) is a curator, art consultant and writer based in Berlin, London and Southern Italy. He received a Masters of Arts in Art Business from Sotheby’s Institute of Art in 2017. With a specialisation in Western (and Western-influenced) contemporary art, Silva has a particular interest in moving image, installation, sculpture and photography. Whilst working with emerging artists in his curatorial practice, he uses current technological and social-political theory to engage audiences with artworks in context with broader aesthetic and political debates.
