Interviews with artists, debate tables, work presentations: the options for live streamed content are huge. Going deeper into themes such as dissident narratives, dialogues about authorship, multidisciplinarity and legislation, original art and the participation of Asian artists in the Brazilian market, the virtual panels unravel important issues that echo in the artistic debate of the moment.
