FEMALE MIGRATIONS, Karina Aguilera Skvirsky
July 10, 2019 @ 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.
The Perilous Journey of María Rosa Palacios and How to Build a Wall and Other Ruins: PAPERS. Screening and live performance.
Karina Aguilera Skvirsky
The Perilous Journey of María Rosa Palacios is a hybrid documentary-fictional tale to pay homage to the artist’s Afro Ecuadorian’s great grandmother’s story of migration. How to build a wall and other ruins: PAPERS absorbs the debates around the engineering feats of Inca architecture. The participatory performance links popular narratives concerning the persistence of pre-Columbian identity with current discourses about borders, migration, and nationhood.
