Find and Tell: Fala Atelier on Umberto Riva

Find and Tell, August 2023
Find and Tell : Atelier Fala on Umberto Riva

As part of the CCA’s Find and Tell program, Fala Atelier offers a reading of the archive of Umberto Riva.

Filipe Magalhães and Ana Luisa Soares (Fala Atelier) were in residence at the CCA in August 2023 as part of the Find and Tell program to select and interpret material from the Umberto Riva fonds, donated to the CCA in 2016.

The Find and Tell program is conceived as a series of residencies in which invited experts are asked to put forward arguments about our holdings by making a significant selection and interpretation of material within an archive or the photography collection. The curated selection can be based on key areas or periods, key projects, or a topical interest the expert thinks should be revealed.
