Regina José Galindo: Nadie atraviesa la región sin ensuciarse
dialogicCENTRALsolutions is a platform comprised of a symposium on contemporary art practice in the region titled Central What? Central America!; an editorial series featuring essays from scholars and artists, and an exhibition and performance by Guatemalan artist Regina José Galindo. Whether through the lens of architecture, art, cultural industries, history or literature, dialogicCENTRALsolutions focuses on discussing new approaches on thinking about Central America. In the framework of these discussions, Galindo will produce a large-scale solo exhibition that will transform ArtCenter’s new temporary space in the Little River neighborhood of Miami into a muddy morass on top of which the specific conditions of the region will be discussed.
