Recent Video from Latin America
Wednesday, June 3, 2015
7:00 p.m.
Harold M. Williams Auditorium, The Getty Center

This 90-minute screening features recent video and performance artworks by 17 artists and collectives working primarily in Central America, Colombia, Peru, and Ecuador. Spanning multiple genres and ranging in tone from poetic to comical to stridently political, these works address the history and role of art in society, local and global political crises, and struggles of everyday life. The program features both established and younger artists, and a majority of works in the program have never been exhibited in the United States.

Admission is free; a ticket is required. Get tickets here.

This program is part of Video Art in Latin America, an ongoing research project at the Getty Research Institute that aims to chart the development of video as an artistic medium across multiple regions of Latin America, and to rethink canonical narratives of video art within the context of global practices.

Organized by Glenn Phillips, curator at the Getty Research Institute, and Elena Shtromberg, assistant professor at the University of Utah.
