About the Speakers

Vivian Caccuri (b. 1986, São Paulo, Brazil) is an artist based in São Paulo, Brazil. For the past fifteen years, Caccuri has been developing installations, performances, drawings, and embroideries that investigate how sound can disorient everyday experiences, inspire new forms of living, and shift power dynamics in society. Caccuri’s artistic practice seeks to highlight the active yet under-recognized aspects of sound.

Miles Greenberg (b. 1997, Montreal, Canada) is a performance artist and sculptor based between New York and Reykjavik, Iceland. Through his performances, videos, sculptures, and installations, Greenberg examines the relationship and tensions between bodies and space, with particular attention to qualities of time and ideas of duration, transformation, ecstasy, and exhaustion. His practice is directly influenced by previous mentorships with Édouard Lock, Robert Wilson, and Marina Abramović.

Bernardo Mosqueira (b. 1988, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) is the ISLAA Curatorial Fellow at the New Museum of Contemporary Art. His recent exhibitions include “Daniel Lie: Unnamed Entities” (2022); “Screens Series: Aline Motta” (2021); “Castiel Vitorino Brasileiro: Eclipse” (2021), Hessel Museum, New York; “Miriam Inez da Silva” (2021), Museu da República, Brasília; “Para Habitar Liberdades” (2019) with Keyna Eleison, Solar dos Abacaxis, Rio de Janiero; “Enchanted Bodies/ Fetish for Freedom” (2018), Galleria d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Bergamo; “what comes with the dawn” (2016), Casa Triângulo, São Paulo; “objects in mirror are closer than they appear” (2015), Rossiya Theater, Moscow; and “Encruzilhada” (2015) EAV Parque Lage, Rio de Janeiro. In 2020, Mosqueira co-founded Fundo Colaborativo, the first emergency fund for artists and art workers based in Brazil. In 2017, he received the Premio Lorenzo Bonaldi per l’Arte. Since 2011, he has directed Premio FOCO ArtRio, a national award for emerging artists. Mosqueira is also founder and artistic director of Solar dos Abacaxis, an institute for experimentation in art, education, and social transformation in Rio de Janeiro.
