See you on Wednesday, May 22nd, at 6:00 pm for an intimate screening-discussion event on recent projects by video artist Gabriela Golder (Buenos Aires), in dialog with Nelson Henricks, active member of VOX. The presentation, in French, will last approximately one hour, and will be followed by questions and a discussion with the audience.

« Un paysage en tension reconfigure un possible territoire sur lequel tout semble être au bord d’éclater. Pensée et action, mots et réactions, parmi ces mouvements naît la résistance, dans les interstices. Découvrir des stratégies, inventer des façons de comprendre le monde : recueillir des traces, rencontrer, écouter, faire, dire, préparer l’action, le geste. Résister. La construction collective devient la seule possibilité. »

This event is made possible in part by the financial support of the Embassy of Canada to Argentina and Paraguay.

Visual artist, curator and professor Gabriela Golder is the co-director of the Bienal de la Imagen en Movimiento (BIM) and curator of El Cine es otra cosa, the Experimental Video and Film Program of the Modern Art Museum in Buenos Aires. She essentially works with “moving image”, and her artistic practice mainly raises issues of memory, identity and the world of labour. Her work has been presented in various museums, cultural centers and festivals across the globe, such as : MacroAsilo – Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Roma (Italy), El Obrador, Buenos Aires (Argentina) and Museo de Arte Miguel Urrutia / MAMU, Bogotá (Colombia) in 2019; Paço das Artes, São Paulo (Brazil) in 2018; the Jakarta Biennale (Indonesia) and Whitechapel Gallery, London (England) in 2017; Hall Partage, Metz (France), Getty Center, Los Ángeles (United States) and Nube Gallery, Santa Cruz de la Sierra (Bolivia) in 2016; etc. Gabriela Golder holds several awards, including the Media Art Award from the ZKM (Germany, 2003), the first prize at Videobrasil (Brazil, 2003) and the Tokyo Video Award (Japan, 2002).
