“Rhythm is a Dancer,” the 90s dance hit stated. Rhythm is also the backbone of Isabella Solar Villaseca’s exhibition Memory Marketplace.
Please join us on January 28, 2–4pm, when we celebrate rhythm with a concert, talk, screening, and savory South American empanadas by Gauchas.
2–3pm: Isabella Solar Villaseca in conversation with María Berríos
3.30–4.30: Concert with Las Reinetas
4.30–5:30: Screening of La Cravate from 1957 by Alejandro Jodorowsky
The talk is based on Villaseca’s current solo exhibition Memory Marketplace at O—Overgaden. The show is grounded in the artist’s Chilean descent and Swedish upbringing in diasporic communities on the outskirts of Stockholm, singing and dancing to evoke the Patria lost to fascism. María Berríos (b. 1978, CH) is the Director of Curatorial Programmes and Research at Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA). She writes and makes exhibitions around undocumented rumors and disappearance as a form. Berríos has followed Villasecaʼs practice for a long time and in the conversation they will discuss, among other things, art, politics and culture in Latin America with a particular focus on the political movements of the 1960s and 70s. The talk will be held in English.
Las Reinetas is a musical duo of two Cuequeras, Rosa Machuca Polanco and Pilar Sanhueza Poblete. Since their formation in Stockholm in 2012 they have been committed to the Chilean dance and music of La Cueca with passion and dedication. With their music and lyrics, they spread joy and spark a heart-warming collective spirit.
The surreal film La Cravate is directed by artist and filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky. The settings are made of cardboard and the plot is based on a short story by Thomas Mann, moving between the absurd and imaginative. Jodorowsky’s 1957 film is a cult classic and an example of his wild and original universe.
Admission to O—Overgaden is free of charge.
