Elastic Memory

Event Type: Panels

Printmedia is well positioned to speak about the imprints and tracings of history, a dialogue that distends into dissemination and layering that evinces the complex relationship we all have to memory and place. It serves as a germane language to speak of a malleable state and to the suspended nature of our contemporary condition, due to political instability, ecological disasters, massive migration and economic distress.

This panel will focus on projects and works that engage the tracings of history through memory, trauma, and transformation. The works will deal with issues of class, gender, politics, violence, migration, personal history, identity and questions of belonging by artists whose modes of engagement use participatory art, socially engaged artworks, installation based or dialogic projects that in some way transform these experiences. We invite presenters who would engage the powerful tracings and “imprints” of memory and in this way reveal what might live in our imaginaries.

“Memorias Elasticas” is a related exhibition to the theme of this panel at the El Cuadrado Gris gallery.
