Subdivision Performance: Alejandro T. Acierto
Alejandro T. Acierto
Friday, March 10, at 7 pm
Alejandro T. Acierto will activate the space through an experimental participatory project that considers the nature of political organizing in the era of Web 2.0. Using a real-time social media monitoring program as a backdrop to activate a set of megaphones within the installation, Acierto engages the structure as an open framework that student organizations and activists can inhabit. After a preliminary solo performance for megaphones and voice, the structure will offer various communities a temporary site to return to, work in, strategize, and recoup for the rest of the exhibition. Using open source technologies, “Return, refresh, Sustain” attempts to embody and present a framework that enables collaborative interactions between organizers, communities, and the public.
About the exhibition: With its seven framed-out wooden façades, Allison Lacher and Jeff Robinson’s Subdivision transforms two galleries into a faux neighborhood where, on a weekly basis, additional artists are invited to manipulate one of the home-like structures in any manner of their choosing.
