Looking forward to attend this seminar with Gilberto Gil, next Tuesday, April 23, at ENS, 45 rue d'Ulm 75005. The former Brazilian Minister of Culture will be speaking about Jean-Paul Sartre's influence in South America and the Tropicalism Movement. Moderated by Annie Cohen-Solal.

The work of Gil's contemporary, the artist Helio Oiticica, and the development of Tropicália is presented in Oiticica in London, an illuminating book I had the pleasure to work on with Guy Brett.
