Responding to our Open Call from February 2020, this second round of awardees resound as a defiant response to the various systems of oppression that mark our peoples. From gender defiance, spiritual plains of resistance, indigenous language and knowledge systems, and other survival tactics such as performance, walking, rituals and fire, these works animate our feelings and concerns. Ranging from Guatemala, Mexico and through to the US, these videos echo non-binary, queer, feminists and indigenous methods of resistance and healing.
This exceptional group of artists use the craft of their hands, lens, eyes, body, time and performance to cause us pause. They make us ask, “How do you say ‘what do we need’?” in our mother tongues. We thank and celebrate Lorena Cruz Santiago, Adrián García, Valeria Montoya, Mateo Vargas and Martin Wannam. We thank them for submitting their art during a pandemic. For having hope in our world enough to share of themselves. We thank them for reminding us to fully feel and hold on to our emotions. To revel in their perpetual questions of self. Their questioning may drive us through the turmoil of today’s limited survival toward tomorrow’s fight for a more equitable and inclusive world.
This is the second of two online features and artist panels of video-art submissions from our SCP+C Open Call 2020 juried by Malia Haines-Stewart and Giselle Mira-Diaz, generously supported by the Propeller Fund.
