Thursday, May 4, 2017 06:30 - 08:30 pm

This presentation outlines the work of artists who participated in the program organized and curated by Hector Canonge, "Temporal Incidence and Continuous Dissidence," during the Hemispheric Institute's Xº Encuentro that took place in Santiago, Chile (July 17-23, 2016)

As members of the transcontinental network, ARTerial PERFORMANCE LAB (APLAB), created by Canonge in 2013, selected artists explored issues related to traversed identities, constructed sovereignties, peripheral domains, and territorial rootedness. The indoor and outdoor performances brought local voices who raised questions about the present state of Artivism (activism + art) in the region.

Participating artists:Daniel Acosta (Argentina), Neda Godoy (Chile), Adrían Gómez (Cuba), Isabel Jordán Bruno (Bolivia), Clara Macias Carcedo (Mexico), Rossella Matamoros (Costa Rica), Ana Carolina Izquierdo (Peru), Graciela Ovejero Postigo (Argentina), Veronica Peña (Spain), Wagner Rossi Campos (Brazil), Leonardo Salazar (Chile), and Leyneuf Tines (Colombia). Photography: Gonzalo Tejeda (Chile).

Organized and curated by Hector Canonge (United States).
