Course Description 
Fernanda Brenner, founder and artistic director of Pivô—an autonomous art space operating in central São Paulo for almost ten years—will depart from her personal experience to tell the story of autonomous institutions; from the first steps in creating Pivô’s inner structure and work methodology, to how they managed to remain flexible and open throughout the years. The talk will address Pivô’s program, the many collaborators involved in its making, and its institutional thinking from a curatorial and executive perspective, and expand on the complexity of Latin America’s many artistic scenes and agents.
