ONLY CONNECT Webinar
Liliana Porter + Ana Tiscornia
Saturday, December 12
Please join us for a conversation between Liliana Porter + Ana Tiscornia on the occasion of Carrie Secrist Gallery’s exhibition Only Connect. This virtual event will be a great opportunity to hear from two artists well known for their individual practices, but who have also come together to make and exhibit work collaboratively through the mediums of visual art, film and theater. Porter and Tiscornia will be in discussion with Carrie Secrist about their collaborative process with a focus on the works on view in the exhibition, previous collaborations and on their recent production THEM which “questions the conventions through which we perceive things, and offers an invitation to recreate narratives beyond our expectations”.
