On August 7, at 2.00 pm, the Research Group Fórum Permanente: Cultural System Between Public and Private will promote a debate with Jochen Volz, director of the São Paulo Pinacoteca.

At the meeting, which will take place in the IEA Events Room, Volz will present his plan for the museum, and dialogue with experts from the area and other guests on this and other topics related to cultural management. The coordination of the event will be in charge of Martin Grossmann, from USP's School of Communications and Arts (ECA), and coordinator of the research group and of Olavo Setubal Chair of Arts, Culture and Science.

The debaters will be Ana Letícia Fialho, from the Brazilian Ministry of Culture, Daniel Rangel, from N+1 Arte Cultura, Felipe Arruda and Paulo Myiada, from the Tomie Ohtake Institute, Ilana Goldstein, from the Federal University of São Paulo, Jorge Schwartz, from the Lasar Segall Museum, José Augusto Ribeiro, from the Pinacoteca, and Luciana Guimareães, from the São Paulo Biennial Foundation.

Prior to the Pinacoteca, Volz was the programming director for the Serpentine Gallerie, in London, from 2012 to 2015, artistic director of the Inhotim Institute, in Minas Gerais, from 2005 to 2012, and curator of the Portikus, in Frankfurt, from 2001 to 2004. At the São Paulo Biennial, he was the chief curator of the 32nd edition, held in 2016, and guest co-curator of the 27th edition in 2006. In other international exhibitions, Volz was the co-curator of the 53rd Venice Biennale in 2009 and of the 1st Aichi Triennial, in Nagoya, in 2010.

The research group has already held meetings with Paulo Herkenhoff, director of the Rio Art Museum (MAR), and with representatives of the Johann Jacobs Museum of Zürich, both of them in order to debate issues related to cultural management and museums.
