According to a statement sent to VerAngola, the initiative has the support of Textang II, being co-organized by the Embassy of Argentina and InterContinental Luanda Miramar.
"Argentine photographer and artist Marcelo Brodsky is in Luanda for an artistic residency at the invitation of the Angola Air project, until the 20th of October. This initiative, supported by Textang II, is co-organized by the Embassy of Argentina and the InterContinental hotel Luanda Miramar", reads the note.
According to the project's promoter, Dominick Maia Tanner, Angola Air concerns an artistic residency project for non-Angolan artists, which has brought international artists to Angola, "whose reflections and narratives can be positively and innovatively influenced with theoretical and empirical research in Angola".
"Angola Air's 14th resident is Argentine artist Marcelo Brodsky," he added.
In turn, Nuno Neves, general manager of the InterContinental Luanda Miramar hotel, said that Marcelo Brodsky "uses photography as a tool to search for identity, capturing the effect of time and events that occur in his personal and social environment".
"We wanted to welcome Marcelo Brodsky to our hotel, accompanied by his family, providing him with an unforgettable experience that combines the highest standards of luxury and the local essence of the Angolan capital", he added.
According to the statement, the works resulting from this residence will be exhibited at the InterContinental Luanda Miramar, from 20 to 22 October, between 2 pm and 7 pm.
The artist and human rights activist was born in 1954 in Buenos Aires (Argentina), where he currently lives. According to the statement, Marcelo Brodsky "was forced into exile in Barcelona after the coup d'état in Argentina in 1976. He studied economics at the University of Barcelona and photography at the Centro Internacional de Fotografia, in the same city", having returned "to Argentina in 1984 and held its first exhibition in 1986".
