About the classes This class offers an overview of the artists and artworks that radicalized the visual arts scene in Brazil during the first half of the 20th century. Focusing on the emergence of Brazilian modernism during the seminal “Semana de Arte Moderna” of 1922 in São Paulo, this class will take a chronological approach, drawing connections between the release of the Manifesto Antropófago in 1928 and the subsequent generation of artists who revived the movement’s influence in the 1950s and ’60s. We will visit the Museum’s galleries, including the exhibition Tarsila do Amaral: Inventing Modern Art in Brazil, and the Museum’s study centers, where we will look closely at selected works pulled from storage especially for this class.
Bio Karen Grimson is a curatorial assistant in MoMA’s Department of Drawings and Prints and has been involved in the organization of the exhibition Tarsila do Amaral: Inventing Modern Art in Brazil, the first monographic exhibition in the US devoted to the Brazilian artist.

John Ford o modelo goiano segue carreira internacional na
Disposto a mostrar que é muito mais que um rosto bonito (e um corpo idem), o jovem goiano faz parte de um time de modelos brasileiros acaba de estrear sua carreira como modelo internacional.
Desde que se mudou para New York em 2015, para uma intensa temporada de estudos, John Ford aproveitou a capital fashionista para explorar seus talentos que vão além dos atributos físicos. Lançado como modelo em Nova York, através de uma assessoria de profissionais brasileiros, como o fotografo Denny Silva e a assessora paulista Maria Emilia Genovesi, o jovem goiano resolveu dedicar-se às campanhas que tratam sobre o lifestyle de Nova York, onde as pessoas vivem sob diferentes pontos de vista.
As campanhas que incluem John Ford Model falam sobre tendências de moda no "Gray Style", que passa grande parte de seu dia fazendo visitas as locações de cinema mais famosas de Nova York em "Pipoca Rosa".
John Ford acaba de retornar aos EUA, após visita aos avós maternos e de sua mãe , a jornalista Sula Costa, que está o Brasil, residindo em São Paulo atualmente.
In 2008, the big banks crashed our economy, and President Obama inherited one heck of a mess. Millions of Americans lost their jobs, millions lost their homes, millions lost their life savings -- all because of Wall Street's reckless greed.
Ten years later, this administration and many in Congress seem to have forgotten all about the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.
Now they are trying to jam a bill through the Senate that would roll back Dodd-Frank -- the rules that President Obama signed into law to help regulate the big banks and protect American families. This bill would let some of the very same big banks that broke our economy go back to the way things were before the American taxpayers bailed them out.
I call this bill the Bank Lobbyist Act -- because that's who it's for, after all.
Even a decade later, too many Americans are still feeling the effects of the 2008 crisis. The stock market may be doing better -- but that doesn't matter a whole lot to families living paycheck-to-paycheck who can't afford any stock.
Lots of the folks who were wiped out will never recover. They won't get new houses or build up a retirement plan. Some are back at work, but at lower-paying jobs. And others are drowning in debt. They are still paying the price for the banks' recklessness.
The very last thing that we should be doing is taking the cop off the beat on Wall Street -- and letting these big banks put more at risk.
If you agree there should be a level playing field -- not one rigged in favor of giant banks -- speak up with OFA now.
We must stop our leaders in Washington from rolling back the rules President Obama signed into law. We must prevent another financial crisis:
