Public Lecture by Groupo Etcetera from Argentina

Special lecture by Groupo Etcetera from Argentina Galef Building RM 219


Directly following the lecture is Etcetera's FREE 4-day intensive workshop. Guests are invited to attend and encouraged to participate thoroughout the duration of the workshop.

This 4-day intensive, participatory engagement with GRUPO ETCETERA…(Federico Zukerfield and Loreto Garín Guzmán), NO WORK/NO SHOP, will be focused on research and experiment (through “trial and error”) to explore the diverse uses of artistic actions and social imagination strategies to solve common problems.

The participants will collaborate on the design of a text and image vinyl installation on the windows of the Galef Building for Talking to Action, an exhibition at the Ben Maltz Gallery that is part the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time Initiative. This will be a unique opportunity to exchange knowledge, explore language and produce a work of public art.

 

BIO

Formed in 1997 in Buenos Aires, Etcétera… is a multidisciplinary collective composed of artists of poetry, visual arts, and theater founded on the intention of bringing art to the site of immediate social conflict—the streets—and into arenas of cultural production, including media and art institutions.Currently, Loreto Garín Guzmán (Chile) and Federico Zukerfeld (Argentina), cofounders of the collective, continue to coordinate the archive, exhibitions, educational activities, and other initiatives. In 2005, they were part of the formation of the INTERNATIONAL ERRORIST movement, an international organization that proclaims error as a philosophy of life [http://www.erroristas.org].
