Porto Vista Hotel Launches International Artist and Curatorial Residency with Berlin-based curator Brunno silva

Porto Vista Hotel is pleased to welcome the first Curator in Residence, Brunno Silva. Brunno will live and work on site at the Porto Vista Hotel in San Diego from May 6, 2019 through July 18, 2019. While in residence, Silva will explore critical conversations surrounding the moving image through a series of lectures, seminars, studio visits and exhibitions that are free and open to the public. From Andy Warhol to Hito Steyerl, Silva will examine how video art has altered the art production landscape.

Brunno Silva’s Curatorial Project “The Video Contingency” is comprised of 10 lectures each comparing and contrasting two video artworks by contemporary artists between 1960 and present. Lectures will be held at Porto Vista Hotel’s Conference Room Costa Del Sol every Wednesday from 6-7:30 PM starting May 8 through July 10, 2019.
