In conjunction with “Judith Bernstein: Cabinet of Horrors”, The Drawing Center is hosting three evenings of conversations by artist-curator pairings on December 12, 2017; January 16th and 17th, 2018. The program is realized thanks to the generous support of Valeria Napoleone XX and is produced by Rosario Güiraldes, Assistant Curator.

TALK
Amara Antilla, Assistant Curator at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, joins Cecilia Vicuña to discuss the aesthetics and politics of disappearance and surrender. They will also discuss her New York street performances and actions from the 1980s and 90s and her work in the 1970s in relation to the Chilean coup and international liberation movements, and how we might apply these strategies today.
