Bringing together curators from Tate Modern and the Essex Collection of Art from Latin America to discuss collecting indigenous art, and the challenges posed to dominate art histories by the representation of this art on a global stage.

Pablo Jose Ramirez, Curator of First Nations and Indigenous Art at Tate, and Diego Chocano, Assistant Curator of ESCALA will join Giuliana Borea, curator of our current show ‘Place-making, World-making’ that showcases the work of three Amazonian Indigenous Artists: Rember Yahuarcani, Brus Rubio and Harry Pinedo/Inin Metsa.

Together they discuss the process of re-framing art collections transnationally, as they question existing art histories and explore new alternatives.
