Nov 6 / Dec 10 – 2010 

Citizen, Participant is an exhibition representing current strategies for artistic production and public intervention in Latin America today. Grouping seven women of the same generation from four countries in North and South America and the Caribbean, each of the invited artists shares a similar concern for addressing social agendas within their work, and utilize artistic tactics of performance, relational and service aesthetics, pedagogical practices, research-based projects, and the usage of public and private archives.

The notion of what it means to be a “citizen” can be at once vague and exact. More than a mere labeling of an individual’s status within a nation-state, the idea of citizenry may be defined by an individual’s decision to participate in a community. Taking an active role in shaping social scenarios and political agendas has the potential to ultimately reconfigure history. The artists in Citizen, Participant intentionally adopt practical, poignant and often poetic gestures that occur in the public realm as tactics for artistic statements. These artists are primarily concerned with questioning subjectivity and value, while frequently offering alternative, pro-active solutions and initiatives.
Without sidestepping aesthetical concerns, the artists in Citizen, Participant favor a controlled inquiry of social interaction ranging from historical investigations, such as Sandra de la Loza’s works surrounding unsanctioned monuments in Los Angeles, California, to sensitive and quiet acts like Milena Bonilla’s repairs to the seats of public buses in Bogotá, Colombia. Videos such as Carolina Caycedo’s Planté Bandera chronicle the determination to cross borders and seek new territories, while Karla Diaz’ urban bird-watching club encourages people to reconsider their own context and surroundings.

Whether in institutional or commercial contexts, these artists frequently reach beyond the limitations of traditional artistic roles, in search of greater public interest, engagement and resonance. Artists in Citizen, Participant will develop projects that are reflective of these strategic approaches. Projects will be inspired by the cross-cultural dialogue generated by the premise of the exhibition. If funds are identified for travel, artists will work on-site in Cairo at Darb 1718 and at other selected public areas.
Otherwise, artists will be asked to create new research-based works for the exhibition that may be easily and inexpensively transported to Cairo (such as video work) or produced there for the exhibition (as in an installation or printed materials).
