In 1969, while living in London, and a year before relocating to New York City, the Brazilian artist Hélio Oiticica wrote, "I have no place in the world." In conjunction with the exhibition Hélio Oiticica: To Organize Delirium, this panel discussion considers Oiticica’s work in relation to transnationalism and the politics of aesthetics and explores the significance of his work to contemporary art practices. Speakers include scholars Irene V. Small and Frederico Coelho and artists Matheus Rocha Pitta and Lyle Ashton Harris. 

Tickets are required ($8 adults; $6 members, students, and seniors).

This event will be live-streamed on YouTube.
