For the Read My World edition of 2024 from September 12-14, we have enlisted Brazilian curator abigail Campos Leal to help co-curate the festival with us. We are thrilled with her commitment because Abigail is a versatile artist:

Like a winding mountain range, abigail moves between Art and Philosophy to create a poetics that allow us to both destroy the world as we know it and imagine radically different ways of inhabiting the infinite.

She holds a master’s degree in Philosophy from UFRJ, is a PhD candidate in Philosophy at PUC-SP, and is a lecturer in Human Sciences and Decolonial Thought at PUC-SP. She published “escuiresendo: poetic ontographies” by O Sexo da Palavra (2020) and “ex/orbitâncias: the paths of gender desertion” by GLAC Edições in 2021. She is the founder and organizer of Slam Marginália. She has performed at Museu Casa das Rosas (SP), Solar dos Abacaxis (RJ), Museu do Amanhã (RJ), Museu da Imagem e do Som (Ceará), and Centro Cultural São Paulo. She has participated in group exhibitions at Museu da Diversidade (SP), Itaú Cultural (SP), Centro Cultural São Paulo, and Museu Casa das Rosas. She was a resident at Pivô Pesquisa cycle 1 2023. She has written critical texts for Foam Magazine, Pipa Prize, and for the 35th São Paulo Biennial: Choreographies of the Impossible.

On May 17, we will therefore organize a closer introduction to her in the presence of abigail in the form of an interview where she will discuss the themes that are important to her, but she will also reveal which international authors we can expect at the festival in September.

This will be an English-language program.
