Vesna Pavlović: Iconography of Spectacle

São Paulo
September 22-October 2, 2013

On October 1st, Vesna Pavlović presented her photographic project Iconography of Spectacle at the Arquivo Vivo (Alive Archive) exhibition at the Paço das Artes, São Paulo. The exhibition, supported by the São Paulo State Secretariat for Culture and curated by the Paço das Artes’ director Priscila Arantes, presented the work of 21 international artists dealing with archive material and issues pertinent to the field. Pavlović’s project was based on research conducted at the Museum of Yugoslav History and focused on Yugoslav President Josip Broz Tito’s career and travels around the world from 1945 to 1979. The exhibition ran until December 8, 2013.

While in São Paulo, Prof. Pavlović taught a week-long seminar on contemporary photography at USP’s Department of Visual Arts at the School of Communication & Arts during Prof. Mario Ramiro’s class “A Fotografia do Invisível” (The Photography of the Invisible). This was the first course taught through a Conversations/Conversas exchange.
