This Friday, May 29, 2020 @ 3PM-4:30PM CST, please join us as we host gallery artist Diana Guerrero-Maciá (Chicago, IL), Paolo Arao (Brooklyn, NY), and Marie Watt (Portland, OR) for a lively discussion on behalf of ‘sindikit.
The Devil is in the Details is an idiom that refers to a catch or mysterious element hidden in the details, meaning that something might seem simple at a first look but will take more time and effort to complete than expected … details are important.
Idiomatic images lose their historical/ economic/ material gravity over time — that which is hidden is archived in the details. Diana, Paolo, and Marie convey ideas around who they are and what their work represents through material choices often coded in abstraction, using a collage aesthetic`. There isn’t direct access into each of the panelists’ identities unless you understand the signifiers engaged or each artist’s visual language—it’s mediated in the work. The details in their work are important, and often the details are sewn. Their work sets a foundation for a conversation around visibility and invisibility.
This event is free. Please visit Eventbrite to register.
| ‘sindikit | is developed by artists Zoë Charlton and Tim Doud and is both an extension of their individual practices and is their collaborative art project. They understand the economies of space and the politics of opportunity; both can be used, given, manipulated, shared, bogarted, and democratized to uplift, undermine, engage, estrange, and support communities and ideas.
