PRINTING PERFORMANCE is an artist talk, performance lecture, and tour of LATITUDE’s printing resources through the viewpoint of resident artist Marcela Torres. Torres’ performance practice has largely focused on the physicality of existing within bodies marked by diaspora. Largely using Martial Arts as a movement structure to depict and unravel self defense, risk and social responsibility, PRINTING PERFORMANCE will employ the language of photo printing as a format to speak about performances long standing relationship to documentation. Both are time based technical practices balancing between permanence and ephemerality. This event will be a performance as much as it is a tour or participatory game or workout. Arrive ready to sweat a lil, learn how to throw a punch, watch sport clips and learn what a platen gap is.
Note: A photographer will be present to document this event. Guests attending may appear in photos.
Free and open to the public.
