Armando Guadalupe Cortés & M. Elijah Sueuga
Wednesday, March 15, 2023 at 6PM
In Person + Livestream
A conversation between artist Armando Guadalupe Cortés and curator and artist M. Elijah Sueuga that explores Cortés’ multidisciplinary practice as a lens through which to think about how concepts of dryness might be communicated through performance, sound, and architecture.
Cortés is a Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artist originally from Urequío, a small community in Michoacán, México. His work explores themes of endurance and repetitive labor through object making, storytelling, and performance, which employs forms and methods from his native hometown in México and contrasts them with elements of his life in the United States. M. Elijah Sueuga is a curatorial fellow at EMPAC and graduate student in the History of Art at Williams College, where his research focuses on modern and contemporary sound and music. Sueuga is also an artist and composer and is collaborating with Cortés in La Seca, a performance that converges on their approaches to sound as well as a shared geography, which will be held at MASS MoCA in February, 2023.
