The 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts - Artist Talks  

The Artist Talks series presents some of the participating artists of the 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts. The series aims to introduce the art practice of a particular artist to the broader public, as well as to encourage a dialogue between the artist and the local cultural protagonists. The setting of the Artist Talks invites informal discussion on the presented art practice, but also ways of making connections between the visiting artists and the local context.

ARTIST TALK WITH CARLOS MONROY

Tuesday, 25 April, at 6 pm, Lecture Room (MGLC ground floor)

His work is mainly based on performance, within which he explores the potential of the body that turns into a political and aesthetic tool at the moment it becomes conscious of its own revolutionary potential to criticize, praise and reveal the ways in which the state, capital and violence, as well as social pressure, affect our lives. Carlos Monroy develops work in various mediums with these notions in mind. He lives and works torn between Bogotá and São Paolo.

ARTIST TALK WITH ALEJANDRO PAZ

Wednesday, 5 April, at 6 pm, Lecture Room (ground floor)

Alejandro Paz, one of the visiting artists of the 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts, will present his art practice as part of the programme. Because of the open structure of this year's Biennial, Alejandro Paz is currently in Ljubljana exploring the context within which he will position his work for the Biennial.

Alejandro Paz is an artist and architect who lives and works in Guatemala. He has carried out projects within the field of architecture and design in the United States, Guatemala and Central America. His art practice deals with the political and social aspects of constructing individual and collective identities. He often expresses himself through socially sensitive performances and installations, carried out in the public space. For his performance Guardaespaldas (April 2002), he hired a bodyguard to protect a tramp during his "work day" on the streets of Guatemala City. He has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions, at the Biennial in Havana and São Paulo. Alejandro Paz was chosen to participate in the 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts by Regina Jose Galindo, winner of the 29th Biennial of Graphic Arts.
