Traces & Gestures
As part of the activities organized for the International Project 150[cicles] (that takes place from September 20th, 2013 to February 23rd, 2014), the Traces & Gestures Portfolio was exhibited at the Dialogue Space and Central Hall.
This portfolio gathered a group of artists from the US and abroad who freely explored the title of the portfolio and made reference to location/site(s), translations, cultural dialogues and the traces that these may leave upon an individual and those that the individual leaves behind. Globally, the use of zines, stencil graffiti, social media and other print traces has had a rising impact in the current discourse about the free dissemination of ideas. What may seem a fleeting gesture can reverberate to have a lasting impact, whether on a global or personal scale.
The portfolio was organized by artist Patricia Villalobos Echeverria and Nichole Maury an was exhibited for first time at the Greymatter Gallery, Suite 222 in Milwaukee, USA as a part of the exhibitions related with the international conference PRINT:MKE held by the University of Milwaukee and the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design in March 2013.
