Vincent Namatjira alongside his contemporaries from the Iwantja Arts Centre, Kaylene Whiskey and Tiger Yaltangki are presenting works for Memory is an Editing Station, an exhibition at the 22nd Biennial Sesc_Videobrasil at Sesc 24 de Maio in São Paulo, Brazil.

The Biennial Sesc_Videobrasil serves as a platform for the generation of knowledge and the establishment of networks within marginalized artistic communities on the global arts landscape.

This year’s edition, led by Videobrasil’s artistic director Solange Farkas and curated by Raphael Fonseca and Kenyan Renée Akitelek Mboya, showcases works of approximately 60 artists and collectives from 38 countries. Through their diverse approaches, they explore the intersections of image, memory, manipulation, fiction, and oblivion. The exhibition is complemented by a comprehensive public program.

Additionally, the 22nd Biennial Sesc_Videobrasil of this year is also commemorating forty years of dedication to artistic production in the Global South with another exhibition titled “40-Year-Special Exhibition.”

Memory is an Editing Station is now on view at Sesc 24 de Maio in São Paulo, Brazil until 25 February 2024.
