Pedagogy of the Streets: Porto 1977 at Mishkin Gallery, Baruch College (CUNY)

Event description:

The Mishkin Gallery presents "Pedagogy of the Streets: Porto 1977," an historic exhibition that revisits the creative and civic-minded projects conceived and implemented by artist Elvira Leite in Porto, Portugal in 1977. The exhibition in on view from March 13 until May 9, 2019 and has been curated by Lucia Almeida Matos and Susana Lourenco Marques (Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Porto). Pedagogy of the Streets: Porto 1977 showcases photographs taken by Leite that document various phases of her 1977 collaboration with the children of Porto's Pena Ventosa community. The images reveal children's attitudes towards public space and the development of experimental teaching methodologies that resonated throughout Leite's life. Before "social practice" became a popular term in art circles, Leite was developing a form of artistic engagement that emmeshed social discourse, civic engagement and aesthetic play all together.
