FEMALE MIGRATIONS, Amanda Gutiérrez
July 31 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Female Migrations is a program curated by Se habla español (SHE) that invites four Latin American artists who address the female perspective of migration. The program, a series of four events which will take place at La Nacional, presents site-specific works by Karina Aguilera Skvirsky, Simone Couto, Amanda Gutiérrez, and Esperanza Mayobre. How does the female gaze experiences migration? How is the journey of men different from the forgotten and the visceral experience of migrating as a woman? Female Migrations calls attention to the historic dismissed role and view of women in this current and dire issue, through the personal experiences and artistic practices of the invited artists.
Flâneuse>La caminanta. VR installation, Amanda Gutiérrez
Flâneuse> La caminanta is a performative documentary of soundwalks with female-identified participants in the public space. The title of the work emphasizes a missing word in Spanish that describes women as wanderers. Gutiérrez’s work calls out how female-identified bodies can safely perceive their autonomy as walkers. The performance will incorporate a collaborative work including sonic explorations and choreographic gestures to make a stand to the lack of inclusiveness of these bodies in public space.
