Clara Ianni. From Figuration to Abstraction. 2017. Video (black and white, sound), 6 min. © 2019 Clara Ianni

Clara Ianni (b. 1987, São Paulo, Brazil) is an artist, writer, and curator whose work explores topics ranging from the complex origins of modernist art and architecture to Brazilian avant-garde theater during the years of the military dictatorship and contemporary crowd control tactics deployed by the police. Across a range of mediums, including video, objects, installations, and actions, Ianni creates situations in which the weight of history is brought to bear on the present. For this program, Ianni presents a selection of her recent moving-image projects and takes part in a conversation about her work.
