Presentation Title:

  • Expanded Circuits and Poetic Re-Writings: Circuito Alameda




  • Transiting in the interdisciplinary domains between art, science and technology, Gilbertto Prado has been building a trajectory within the context of contemporary Brazilian art. His works have no hierarchy and are not restricted to a specific language or domain, being able to dialogue with issues that relate to network art as well as to explore the poetic potentialities offered by virtual environments. Many of recent Prado’s works are co-authored with the Poéticas Digitais Group, formed by artists and young researchers, creating collaborative networks and knowledge circuits. In this context, the purpose of this article is to analyze the work of the artist and the group as well as the Circuito Alameda exhibition presented at the Laboratorio Arte Alameda in Mexico City in 2018, based on the concept of rewriting, developed by the researcher Priscila Arantes.
