A multidisciplinary project that address issues of representation: colonialism, post-colonialism, race and power. "Santos" subvert found debris that were originally manufactured to frame an idea of the "other", using an interpretation of the "mestizo Baroque" as reference of re claiming narrative.

Floating Lab Collective project
Drawings by Chris Rakley
The Occupy the Future stage is being created by DC’s Floating Lab Collective. Their design takes inspiration from Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel, reimagining the visual metaphors for social progress found in the great Renaissance work as key figures, movements and symbols of contemporary social change. Created specifically for the historic Lincoln Theatre, the design will celebrate Pussy Riot, Occupy, Hong Kong’s Umbrella protests, Black Lives Matter, the three finger salute in Thailand, and others acts of resistance from around the world.

BOZAR / CENTRE FOR FINE ARTS / Brussels, Belgium
Cities in both Latin America and in Europe have become major global actors and strategic territories where tremendous social, political, economic, environmental and cultural changes are currently taking place. Both the EU and Latin America witness a myriad of public and private examples to regenerate public spaces and local communities. In that framework, culture and creativity can offer new perspectives and alternatives to challenges raised by social exclusion and urban development. This debate will discuss how the EU and Latin America can jointly address these issues to forge more inclusive and resilient cities.
The open debate follows a one-day experts’ seminar at BOZAR organized, jointly with Interarts, in the framework of the EU project ‘Culture and arts supporting social cohesion in Latin American cities - LAIC’ funded by the European Commission.

Northern Virginia Magazine article / link
For Jouet Guidant le Peuple, I used children’s toys as a form of demarcation in the gallery because this is how my son, Ian, defines his personal space in his room. For him, toys become a source of emancipation and a passage into a new persona that leads to independence, growth and new knowledge. In the context of the gallery, I am used the toys to claim space, but they are on the ceiling. This rethinks the concept of creating territory for an individual, and transforms the conversation into a discussion about mass consumption, the plastic material of the toys and consumerism.

It has become an assumption and a habit that complex arts activities require permanent organizations, corporate structures, and exclusive choices between for-profit or not-forprofit. But creative people are questioning that assumption, and breaking that habit. American University's Arts Management Fall Colloquium explores the options beyond traditional organizations for aligning creative people, money, and stuff over time.
