Exhibition Tour w/CFAM Curator Amy Galpin
March 18, 2016 @ 11:00 am
Join Dr. Amy Galpin for a tour of the current exhibition Transcommunality: Laura Anderson Barbata, Collaboration Beyond Borders. Anderson Barbata’s project highlights the vitality of the moko jumbie stilt-walking tradition and demonstrates the possibility of using this storied art form as a platform for social contemporary performance, group participation, and protest. Spanning from 13 feet tall to just 11 inches small, the works presented in Transcommunality range from textile-based to sculptural objects, as well as photographs, videos, and projections that document the collaborative project.
Laura Anderson Barbata is among Mexico’s most distinguished mid-career artists. Born in Mexico City, she currently lives and works in New York and Mexico City, where she is professor at the Escuela Nacional de Escultura, Pintura y Grabado La Esmeralda of the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes. Laura Anderson Barbata is a member of the National System of Artists (miembro del Sistema Nacional de Creadores), FONCA-CONACULTA.
The Transcommunality exhibition runs through April 10, 2016.
