The name of the lecture series originates from Uruguayan artist and intellectual Joaquín Torres-García’s School of the South, a centre strategically located in South America that became known for its contribution to knowledge aligned to the Global South.
The lectures will take place in The Forum, a purpose-built amphitheatre inside the Foundation’s gallery conceived of as a communal space for the exchange of ideas. This first series of lectures in The Forum focuses on the role of the artists within their cultural contexts and contemporary society.
The 2022 lecture series at JCAF will introduce the artists in this year’s exhibition Kahlo, Sher-Gil, Stern: Modernist Identities in the Global South, the third and last in JCAF’s exhibition trilogy under the theme Female Identities in the Global South.
