Artist Talk: Tania Bruguera

View Full Event Description

Pelican Bomb, in partnership with the Newcomb Art Museum and the Cuban & Caribbean Studies Institute at Tulane University, hosts a talk with internationally renowned artist Tania Bruguera at the Freeman Auditorium in Tulane’s Woldenberg Art Center.

For this lecture, Bruguera speaks about her politically motivated practice, including “#YoTambienExijo (I Also Demand),” where she attempted to put a microphone at Revolution Square in Havana in 2014. She had invited people to express their visions for Cuba without censorship, but, before this performance, she was detained and had her passport confiscated by the Cuban government. One of the leading political and performance artists of her generation, Bruguera researches ways in which art can be applied to everyday life. Her long-term projects have been intensive interventions on the institutional structure of collective memory, education, and politics. Continuing her focus on the promise and failure of the Cuban Revolution, Bruguera will open INSTAR, the Instituto de Artivismo Hannah Arendt, in Havana in September 2016. A residency, think tank, and workshop space, INSTAR aims to use performance art as a channel to open avenues for freedom among the general Cuban population.

Recognized as one of the 100 Leading Global Thinkers by “Foreign Policy” magazine and shortlisted for the 2016 #Index100 Freedom of Expression Award, Bruguera is a 2015 Herb Alpert Award winner, a Hugo Boss Prize finalist, a Yale World Fellow, and the first artist in residence in the New York City Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs. In 2013, she was part of the team creating the first document on artistic freedom and cultural rights with the United Nation’s Human Rights Council. Her work has been exhibited at Documenta, the Venice Biennale, the Tate Modern in London, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, and the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, among others. She lives and works between New York and Havana.

Her work “The Francis Effect” is currently on view in New Orleans as part of “False Flags,” a group exhibition curated by Noah Simblist, at Pelican Bomb Gallery X (1612 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard). First presented in 2014 at the Guggenheim, the performance exists in the guise of a political campaign that requests the Pope grant Vatican citizenship to all immigrants and refugees around the world. Visitors can add their voice to Bruguera’s petition before and after the artist talk and at “False Flags,” on view through May 29.

RSVP and invite your friends on Facebook.

John Edward Heaton's Guatemala: A Photographic Exhibit

View Full Event Description

John Edward Heaton’s Guatemala, a photographic exhibit will be on display at The Latin American Library, Tulane University, March 17-May 27.
We are honored to be the first venue in North America to show this exhibit, which debuted in the fall of 2015 in Paris at the Maison Européene de la Photographie, Paris’ main museum for photography.
John Edward Heaton’s work documents the fascinating worlds of Guatemala. He has spent 35 years immersed as aphotographer, environmentalist, visual anthropologist, cultural entrepreneur, and curious witness to this Central American nation, among the most historically rich and complex nations of Latin America. Occupying the space between historical documentary and fine art, Heaton’s stunning photographs capture the ironies and poignancy of Guatemala and its people with a penetrating gaze that is nonetheless thoroughly engaged, sympathetic and not without a good dose of humor. The Latin American Library was one of the first to collect Heaton’s published work in 2011. Recognizing and acquiring historically important publications in a timely way allows us to bring to the Tulane campus exhibitions like Heaton’s that usually tour only at large museums.
