‘Mapping new Terrain, Contemporary Arts Practice in Mexico: SEFT & Dignicraft’

Bill Kelly Jr. will talk about his work as curator and lead researcher of Talking to Action: Art, Pedagogy and Activism in the Americas a research, exhibition and publication platform examining community based art practices as part of the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/ LA initiative. Kelley will talk about two case-studies that take on new ways of mapping our terrain.

SEFT: Sonda de Exploracion Ferroviaria (SEFT) is a playfully futurist vehicle used to explore disused railroads in order to map the history of capital development in Mexico. The artist-designed vehicle was created by Ivan Puig and Andrés Padilla Domene (Mexico City, Mexico).

Dignicraft: a long term project which charts the work of Purépecha craftspeople who have migrated from their ancestral homeland, the island of Janitzio in Michoacán, and currently reside in Rosarito, Baja California. The project reflects upon the migratory experience through the collaborative act of making and selling piñatas.
