Open Call for the Portadores #15 piece at the Bronx Museum of the Arts
Portadores is a collaborative project between artist Almudena Lobera and architect Isabel Martínez Abascal, exploring the medium of living bodies. The project consists of drawings by Almudena Lobera that are shown and tattooed onto the skin of volunteers by Isabel Martínez Abascal, and then are destroyed so that the only remaining and existing works are those on the skin. The execution of the dibuajes (drawings-tattoos) requires the collaboration of the viewer, who becomes an integral part of the work. This project aims to call into question the material form of the artwork and to explore social and relational notions.
The Bronx Museum of the Arts will host the performance of Portadores, together with an artist talk and videos from previous presentations.
Applications are being accepted through April 12.
The selection of Portador #15 will be made by the authors of the project and will be announced before April 22, 2014.
The Bronx Museum of the Arts will host the performance of the Portador #15, which will include an artist talk, and videos from previous presentations, on Friday, April 25th, 2014 from 6:30 to 9pm
Location: 2nd Floor North Wing
