Moacir dos Anjos
Deborah Cherry will be in Conversation with Moacir dos Anjos, TrAIN visiting research fellow.
Moacir dos Anjos will discuss his research and curatorial practice concerning the work of artists who, in different ways, question conventional ways of understanding the idea of belonging in an increasingly interrelated and conflictive world
What makes a transnational practice or perspective in art or curating? TrAIN Conversations are informal conversations with invited artists and curators, followed by round-table discussions with the participants.
Speakers have included Gayatri Sinha, curator and critical writer on art, based in New Delhi, Paul Domela, curator of the Liverpool Biennale, Ingrid Pollard, photographer based in London, Judy Freya Sibayan, artist and curator based in Manila, Charles Esche, curator and Director of the Van Abbe Museum, Eindhoven; and Jonathan Martin, filmmaker based in London.

I studied in the UK (Edinburgh and London) and I have worked in the UK, the USA, and in Europe, where I am now at the University of Amsterdam. Following my PhD I have written extensively on art in Britain in the nineteenth and early twentieth century with two books, Painting Women (1994) and Beyond the Frame: Feminism and Visual Culture (2000) along with exhibitions such as ‘The Edwardian Era’ (co-curated 1987).
