The Forecast
Kelsey Miller

19.07.17 18.08.17

The Forecast was the project that Kelsey Miller developed during her ´acePIRAR Production Residency, and what she presented in the July 19th, 2017 ´aceNITE titled Pliego. An installation in the Transversal Space that addresses issues of power, communication, censorship and information management in reference to climate change. Miller is an artist concerned with these issues and particularly affected in these times by the new policies and positions that her country has taken with respect to global warming. For the same reason, for the development of the installation, she carried collected news from the North American and Argentine newspapers related to the subject.

When one goes through the installation, you encounter works that seem to have the news (texts and images) erased, completely censored or burned by the light. As one moves on, an in crescendo is generated towards stronger greys that give us the impression of being able to access the information more clearly but this turns out to be only a (false) illusion since the words are overlapped, scratched, crossed out, so that communication is not possible either. The third and last section confronts us with a new frustration of our decodification impulse since the black planes prohibit any traditional reading of what the news would be. An installation that as all works of art, refuses to communicate explicitly but allows us to reflect deeply on the fragmentary access we have to facts, manipulation and the never innocent distribution of information.

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
