I will be presenting as part of an upcoming Pecha Kucha event at the Wolfsonian called “Practice & Process,” on March 15, from 7 – 9 PM. The evening focuses on the work that goes into creative productions rather than only the object itself. I will be talking about the Mapping Arts Project, and I’ll likely show some behind-the-scenes looks at the progress of the site and some of the newly acquired images.
Once the heroic image of class consciousness and national character in the first half of the twentieth century, the worker has mainly disappeared from our contemporary visual landscape. This fast-paced program is designed to make visible the practice and process of a variety of South Florida workers, including Eleanor Hoh (wok star), Lara Stein Pardo (artist/anthropologist/Mapping Arts Project), Ruth Reitan (professor/independent filmmaker), Gabriele Marewski (farmer/Paradise Farms), Chana Sheldon (executive director/Locust Projects), Andrew Kaufman (photographer), Andrei Nana (ultramarathoner), and Mylinh Nguyen (art director/The Wolfsonian). Their presentations will reveal how the creative process and laboring journey is as important, if not more, than the final product destination. Co-presented with AIGA Miami (American Institute of Graphic Arts).
