TIAGO GUALBERO AT FB GALLERY

In 2006, Tiago becomes a member of the “ The Living Culture Program”, an action that involves the civil society and the federal government in order to empower social and cultural energies, as it allows the expression of the communities’ own dynamics and bringing together actions and support aimed at developing a cooperative, solidary and transformative culture. The work developed by Tiago in this program consisted in the production of workshops and educational documents that would emancipate these communities by incentivating them to work based in “collaborative work”, networking and also teaching them to utilize multimedia techniques in order to publicize their work.

ARISTIDES RUIZ IN DEXTERITY AT LYONS WEIR.

Difficult for me to express in words…as the work is the expression…
It’s not so much about the actual visual “subject” ______
It’s a sensation…a moment of understanding antecedent to language – ineffable but instantly recognizable…

The city… quiet, pulsating, alive…like a sleeping tiger…
Just beautiful…New York…New York…
I can’t say it…
A private poem to the love of your life…

ANYA LIFTIG BUILDS A BARRICADE IN ATLANTA.

On Saturday, July 7, Anya Liftig returns to Atlanta for what will be her most physically challenging performance to date.  I’m a Groucho Marxist, presented by Flux Projects, will take place on Airline Street just below the Edgewood Avenue overpass.  This durational performance will run from 8:30 until 11:30 p.m.

Drawing from the history of literal and socially imposed barriers in Atlanta’s past, I’m a Groucho Marxist will feature a barricade made of reclaimed materials. Liftig will attempt to cross the structure while blindfolded and partially bound.  As with most of Liftig’s work, the built-in physical hardship is integral to the project, and this work in particular addresses the difficulty in crossing boundaries.
