SPACES in Miami
Part of Artist-in-Residence
SPACES will be at NADA Miami exhibiting the work of 2021 Artist-in-Residence, Alicia Grullón, Please Don't Let it Be Too Close.
This work, produced while in remote residence at SPACES in December 2020/January of 2021, is a continuation of her process using visual and embodied performative practices to create alternatives in archiving history. Grullón combines performative traditions with her own practices in photography and video in her ongoing interdisciplinary practice towards critiques of the politics of presence, arguing for the inclusion of disenfranchised communities in political and social spheres.
As she notes in her short piece for Verso Book’s Blog Hot City, “In my work I want to encourage viewers to reflect upon my performances as particular processes where I express the undoing of colonial history through my body and actions. In a broader sense, I use photography to unravel the complexities of my signification in a straightforward manner relying only on the camera and performance as apparatus.”
