Muriel Hasbun with Andy Grundberg and Pablo Ortiz Monasterio
Saturday, March 08 - 9:00AM to 10:45AM
Collaborations usually take place in the same time and physical space, with artists working together toward an agreed-upon end. Muriel Hasbun of Washington, D.C., and Pablo Ortiz Monasterio of Mexico City began exchanging photographs by email as a casual gesture of friendship, but the text-free conversation morphed into an intuitive, complexly structured dialogue about memory, meaning, and cultural distance. The artists will discuss their year-long process, what they discovered, and the pleasures of sharing unexpected directions. Andy Grundberg, who joined the project as writer of the exhibition essay, will contextualize their work and discuss his own conversation with the images as they were assembled.
