19 in 2021: A Drone’s Eye View is a website adaptation of Nat Pyper’s sci-fi serial of the same name and an online exhibition featuring new works by Bárbara Baron, Julio Córdova, and Marissa Macias. The artists in this virtual exhibition explore the world and themes depicted in 19 in 2021 through moving images, soundscapes, and fashion. This project was selected through the SCP+C 2020 open call program funded by the 2019 Propeller Fund Grant and is hosted by Chuquimarca.

I Dreamed I Was a We: SF+ Reading Group is a reading group discussing speculative fiction (SF) and essays/poetry (+) that address contemporary crises and liberation struggles as part of programming for our current project 19 in 2021: A Drone’s Eye View. Extended schedule on our webiste.

Nat Pyper is an alphabet artist working in video, performance, and publishing. In their work and writing, they use language as a sieve and they push the body through it. In addition to their studio practice, they also write sci-fi and research queer anarcho-punk zines of the late 80s and early 90s. They are a 2018 graduate of the Yale School of Art.

Bárbara Baron is a Brazilian interdisciplinary artist based in Chicago, IL. Her works often utilize obsolete media and explore themes such as memory, time and identity. By experimenting with abstractions of time and space existing within video, the artist creates amorphous narratives through registered memories – either collective or her own – with the intent of preserving herself: ‘becoming archive’ without limits.

Julio Córdova is an artist and DJ. He DJs at venues including Berlin and Smart Bar Chicago. He also organized the Milwaukee-based club night Earth Angel and co-organizes the reggaeton night Agua de Rosas.

Marissa Macias is an artist and fashion designer based in chicago. Her garments can be described as sentimental ready-to-wear. Through one-of-a-kind Micro collections, her pieces aim to become tokens of magical empowerment to the wearer. Currently she is working on growing her brand M-037.

Chuquimarca, also known as Chuquimarca Projects, is a library project space focused on the Native, Mexican, Caribbean, and Central and South American contemporary art and culture discourse in Chicago.
