For this Artists at Work, Manuel Aja Espil, ISCP’s current resident from Argentina, will be in conversation with Alejandro de la Guerra, an artist and organizer from Nicaragua. At the center of their dialog will be discussion of Espil’s work in the context of Latin American art aesthetics. Both artists use imagery from art history and popular culture to tell stories about societal inequalities and political struggles. Playing with collective memory and coded imagery, they express a mix of humor and excitement with tragedy and dissent. 

This is a bilingual program, and will take place in both English and Spanish.
