Artemisa Clark: La clase de dibujo libre/Free Drawing Class (2000-2004/2017)

 

Presented with Armory Center for the Arts as part of Pacific Standard Time Festival: Live Art LA/LA

Los Angeles-based performance and installation artist Artemisa Clark recreates a street action originally performed by artist/activist Ema Villanueva, who presented a series of performances in Mexico City's public plazas in the early 2000s. Villanueva posed as a model, using the practice of drawing from a live nude to reflect on contemporary social issues such as feminism and social justice. In this performance, Clark considers Villanueva's actions while offering another interpretation of the traditional role of the model. Villanueva's La clase de dibujo (The Drawing Class) is represented in the Armory's exhibition Below the Underground: Renegade Art and Action in 1990s Mexico

 

January 17, 7 to 9 pm

LOCATION: Armory Center for the Arts
145 N. Raymond Ave, Pasadena, 91103

En esta re-presentación, Clark considera las acciones de Villanueva ofreciendo otra interpretación del papel tradicional de la modelo. La clase de dibujo (The Drawing Class) forma parte de la exhibición Below the Underground: Renegade Art and Action in 1990s Mexico
