In the greenhouse: Return Atacama happening

Fri. Jan. 20, 2017

The greenhouse: a feminist artlab for making and thinking on the 5th floor of the UofW Library, is pleased to be hosting CONSTELACIONES in the lab from January 13 thru to January 31.

We invite you to join us for a happening (participatory task-based performance) on Friday, January 27, 2017 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

CONSTELACIONES will share their works-in-process and reflective remains from their trans-hemispheric performances: “Lake Winnipeg,” “Wrapping Atacama,” “Return Atacama,” and “Echoes: North…North.”

Drawing from interdisciplinary practices that include sculpture, performance, installation, sound and video, artists Roewan Crowe, Doris Difarnecio, Christina Hajjar, Monica Martinez and Helene Vosters engage in a process-based, trans-hemispheric collaboration. Among other projects, CONSTELACIONES travelled to Chile’s infamously storied Atacama Desert to install a large set of vibrant ceramic forms, created by Martinez, embodying stratified layers of Chilean history, and diasporic and nomadic trajectories resulting from the 1973 coup.

The greenhouse is wheelchair accessible but does not have a power door at the entrance.
