Tour: A Universal History of Infamy (50 minutes)

3 pm | Sun, November 26, 2017

Referencing the title of a genre-bending collection of stories by Jorge Luis Borges, A Universal History of Infamy uses multiple venues across Los Angeles to present new works by more than 15 boundary-defying artists and collectives. Developed for the most part through residencies at the 18th Street Arts Center in Santa Monica, the works represent artists who live and practice in several countries; adopt methods from disciplines such as anthropology, theater, and linguistics; mingle research with visual art; and work across a range of media, from installation and sculpture to performance and video. 

Artists in the exhibition: Angela Bonadíes (Venezuela); Mariana Castillo Deball (Mexico/Germany); Carolina Caycedo (Colombia/Los Angeles); Josefina Guilisasti (Chile); Tamar Guimarães and Kasper Akhøj (Brazil/Denmark); Runo Lagomarsino (Argentina/Sweeden); Fernanda Laguna (Argentina); Michael Linares (Puerto Rico);  NuMu [Stefan Benchoam, Jessica Kairé] (Guatemala); MAPA Teatro (Colombia); Naufus Ramirez-Figueroa (Guatemala); Gala Porras-Kim (Colombia/Los Angeles); Vincent Ramos (Los Angeles); Oscar Santillán (Ecuador) Zinny and Maidagan (Argentina, Germany) and Carla Zaccagnini (Brazil/Norway).
