Curated by Adriano Pedrosa, White Cube Mason’s Yard, London 2013
Leading contemporary art gallery White Cube has invited São Paulo-based curator Adriano Pedrosa to curate an exhibition at their Mason’s Yard gallery, London, in July 2013. Pedrosa’s project, titled Open Cube, will attempt to infiltrate the hierarchies of the gallery system by inviting any interested artists to submit works to be included in the exhibition. By opening up the selection process, Pedrosa wishes to unsettle the system of gallery practices, initiating a dialogue with artists that might not have access to this network.
Shortlisted artists must be available for interviews in London with Adriano Pedrosa in March and April.
A comprehensive catalogue with texts by Pedrosa will accompany the exhibition.
Adriano Pedrosa is an independent curator, editor, and writer currently based in São Paulo. He has curated numerous international exhibitions and was adjunct curator of the 24th Bienal de São Paulo (1998, with chief curator Paulo Herkenhoff), co-curator of the 27th Bienal de São Paulo (2006, with chief curator Lisette Lagnado) and co-curator of the 12th Istanbul Biennial (2011, with Jens Hoffmann). He has published extensively on contemporary art in numerous catalogues and magazines, and is the founding director of PIESP—Programa Independente da Escola São Paulo.
