Please join us for a wide-ranging discussion between artist Santiago Sierra and curator Paco Barragan.

Known for antagonistic actions with controversial ethical complications, Sierra strategically intervenes into the everyday operations of power. His unnerving spectacles expose systems of marginalization and exploitation that are, for the most part, implicit and underacknowledged. Many of his works deliberately test the tolerance of institutional authority, to the point that adversity – including shut-downs and refusals – is integral to their critique and effectiveness.

 

Biographies:

Santiago Sierra's performances, installations and interventions have been featured internationally at venues such as Ikon Gallery, P.S.1/MoMA, Museo Rufino Tamayo, the Irish Museum of Modern Art, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, the ICA (London), and the Sharjah and Moscow biennials. At the 2003 Venice Biennale, he exhibited at the Spanish pavilion. Sierra's installation, "100 Plastic Containers for Human Corpses" (2016), will be featured in this year's Nuit Blanche.

Paco Barragan is a curator at Matucana 100, Santiago de Chile and Contributing Editor for ARTPULSE magazine. His recent exhibitions include "Intimate Strangers: Politics as Celebrity, Celebrity as Politics" (Matucana 100), "Guided Tour: Artist, Museum, Spectator" (MUSAC Leon), and "Erwin Olaf: The Empire of Illusion" (Museo Castagnino-MACRO Rosario). Barragan is the author of The Art to Come (2002), and The Art Fair Age (2008), and is curating "Militant Nostalgia" for Nuit Blanche.

Seating for this event is limited.
