Stella, the scene #stellamccartney  #prefall13 

‪¿Han escuchado un género de la música venezolana hermosísimo llamado JOTA CUMANESA?‬ ‪Aquí se los presentamos.‬ ‪VOZ: @rafa.pino  ‬ ‪La versión más conocida es de nuestra sirena de Cumaná MARÍA RODRÍGUEZ ‬ ‪¿Qué les parece? 🇻🇪 ‬

Hoje tive a oportunidade de conversar com a equipe de Americas Society e Council of the Americas. Estas instituições editam a revista Americas Quarterly, que no ano passado me colocou no Top5 Políticos Latino-americanos com menos de 40 anos. Boa discussão, mediado pelo editor-chefe da revista Brian Winter, sobre política, gestão pública e perspectivas para o Brasil em 2017 e 2018. #americasquarterly

Very honored to be part of YPA’s Sports Diplomacy and empowerment event. A Cafecito on Cuba y Venezuela. I’m a believer and full-on advocate of the power of sports, specifically soccer, and how that power could be used for social change. @ascoa_ypa  @goleadoras  #girlswithballs  #eglantinazingg  #Venezuela

Repost @americassociety.visualarts  We are pleased to announce our next exhibition, "Alice Miceli: Projeto Chernobyl," on view October 9, 2019-January 25, 2020. The exhibition presents the Brazilian artist's series of radiographs made in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone from 2006-2010. She developed this method of image making to document the enduring effects of the Soviet nuclear plant explosion of April 26, 1986.

#WallsofAir  is an interdisciplinary research project with over 200 collaborators. This video, currently on view in our galleries, features interviews with members of the project’s scientific committee, each discussing their research relating to one of the ten cartographies.

LAST WEEKS - #WallsofAir  is open through August 3rd. #brazil  #architecture  #urbanplanning  #biennial  #maps  #americassociety  #exhibition  Photo by Anna Demidova

Each week of the exhibition #WallsofAir  we're featuring one of the maps presented in the gallery. The large scale maps are a result of collaborative, interdisciplinary research into urgent issues facing contemporary Brazil. "Fluid Landscape: Encounter Between Human and Natural Ecosystems" is a topographical chart of South America, overlaid by natural elements, that constructs a narrative of Brazil’s relationship with the environment. Instead of geopolitical borders, the map emphasizes the most significant natural barriers of continental scale. The map demonstrates how apparently unrelated events in the north of the country—the wind regimes close to the Equator (represented by white arrows on the map) and the production of water vapor by the Amazon forest (represented by the intensity of blue)—are responsible for the fertile ground that allows cities in the southeast to thrive. At the same time, the map points to the risks these cities are facing as Brazil’s forests are destroyed, even if they are thousands of kilometers apart. A gradient from yellow to red represents the intensity of carbon emissions from biomass loss, or deforestation. The map stresses how the depletion of the Amazon is not only contributing to global climate change, but also affecting the very possibility of sustaining life in our major cities. Fluid Landscape instigates architects and urbanists, not only to think holistically in their respective fields, but also to understand the multiple scales their professional decisions might impact. #exhibition  #environment  #environmentalism  #deforestation  #climatechange  #amazon  #brazil  #maps 

@ascoa  has been taken over by massive maps highlighting the upheavals of Brazilian urbanization—thank you @americassociety.visualarts  and @ascoa_ypa  for the curator-led tour of #wallsofair ! 🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷

We offer free guided tours for small groups. Contact us to schedule a visit. #WallsofAir  #exhibition  #tours  #programs  #americassociety  Photo by @onwhitewall 

El lunes tuve la suerte de ver la gran exposición Walls of Air ¡Tienen que verla! Todo julio en @americassociety.visualarts  Muchas felicidades @lauragonzalezfierro  gracias por el tour y por ser un orgullo como mujer mexicana. Te admiro mucho!

Sadly, today was Gabriela’s last day at the Americas Society. 😢The 15 years of your work here have placed Latin American art at a great scholarly level that only a woman with your intellect and depth of knowledge could have done so. I can’t wait to see your projects at MALBA, how these will shape LA art, and this time you’ll be doing it from South to North. You will be missed! Gabriela Querida, te deseo todo lo mejor en esta nueva etapa, que no dudo será maravillosa. Espero que nuestro próximo encuentro sea muy pronto. Gracias por todo y va mi inmenso cariño. #farewellsarealwayssad  #luckymalba  #borgescortazarsabato  #sternminujinsolarferrari 

Today marks the last working for the incomparable @gabriela_rangel_m.  Thank you for this año y pico of inspiration, generosity, and guidance. I'm happy for the excuse to visit Buenos Aires to see the amazing things you'll do at @museomalba , but @americassociety.visualarts  wont be the same without you! Gracias @onwhitewall  for capturing this cheesy moment at the #WallsofAir  opening 🙏🏻

Next Thursday we are partnering with @ascoa_ypa  to host a gallery tour of #WallsofAir .

Each week of the exhibition #WallsofAir  we're featuring one of the maps presented in the gallery. The large scale maps are a result of collaborative, interdisciplinary research into urgent issues facing contemporary Brazil. "Human Flows: The Dilution of Barriers Through Cultural Assimilation" is a socio-spatial analysis of the Brazilian territory, interrogating how open the country is toward immigrants. A wave of displaced people has complicated Brazil’s social and urban panoramas in recent decades. This summary of migratory flows during the period between 2000 and 2016 shows incoming refugees (red), incoming international immigrants (blue), and domestic migration flows (black). The graphics indicate the direction and intensity of these movements, with the different colored lines connecting Brazilian cities and other countries listed in the circumference. The surrounding timeline visualizes more than one million immigrants according to their country of origin. The map also illustrates the journeys of twenty-three families, mostly migrating in search of new opportunities, from their birthplaces to their current homes. Their paths are enumerated alongside narratives—the result of a workshop organized in São Paulo in January 2018—that describe the various borders they had to cross before settling down. #exhibition  #migration  #immigration  #refugees  #brazil  #maps  #architecture  #americassociety 

In building our impact campaign for #saudade , we explored modern-day Brazil @ascoa ’s #wallsofair  exhibit. Using a fusion of #design  and #data , “Walls of Air” visually maps out how housing, immigration, education, infrastructure, and sustainability have shaped the social and environmental architecture of Brazil past and present. With the recent #demdebates  and #census2020  Supreme Court ruling, the parallels to America’s fragmentation—the visible and the invisible—are profound. Free and open to the public, it runs until August 3 from Wednesday-Saturday @americassociety.visualarts.  Curated by @solcamacho  @lauragonzalezfierro  @gabrielkozlowski  @mvmaiarosa.  🇧🇷💡🇺🇸 #brasil  #visualstorytelling  #art  #architecture  #visualarts  #filmlife  #perspective  #neverstopexploring  #nyc  ♒︎ #culture  #maps  #featurefilm  #filmmakers  #digitalart  #productionlife  #makersgonnamake  #waves  #aroundtheworld  #generations  #jointhemovement  #millennials  #bridgethegap  #seethingsdifferently  #swimupstream

A New York magical moment when I get the chance and pleasure to work, discuss and exchange ideas with two of the most brilliant minds in the Americas : @gabriela_rangel_m  and @bbergdoll  💥💥💥 #wallsofair  #ASCOA  #americassociety  #counciloftheamericas  #architecture  #brazil

“Meeting your heroes”. Leo Brouwer is surely a familiar name for every classical music guitarist. Personally I connect his music to the best part of my teenage. Playing his works for guitar quartet was an important step for developing my artistic identity. Honored to have met him yesterday. So many memories... . . . . . #leobrouwer  #guitar  #classicalguitar  #paisajecubanoconrhumba  #musicheroes  #musicoftheamericas  #eightyyears  #celebration  #eightyyearsold  #newyork  #nyc 

Met Maestro Leo Brouwer tonight before his 80th Anniversary Celebration. A beautiful man and great guitar composer from Cuba. #classicalguitar  #mannesguitarseminar
