Join us for a roundtable exploring the context of Mia, Zac Hacmon's current solo show at Locust Projects. Join Zac Hacmon in conversation with Alexa and Nicaraguan-born and Miami-based artist, Marisa Telleria moderated by curator and writer Emireth Herrera Valdes.
Hacmon and Alexa will talk about their multi-year collaboration that informed Mia, an immersive installation of blue and white colors that evoke the Nicaraguan flag as a political statement of resistance by an asylum seeker in the United States. Joining the conversation is Marisa Telleria who will share personal experiences and talk about her work and the concept of invisibility and color as a measure of protest. Emireth Herrera Valdés, whose curatorial practice is mainly focused on socially engaged projects, will take Hacmon's immersive installation as the starting point to discuss Nicaragua's invisibility.
Locust Projects presents a hybrid event featuring Leo Castañeda and members of new art-house gaming studio Otro Inventario in a discussion on the development of the Herramientas: Levels & Bosses game+exhibition. The artists will reveal their creative process and technical tools for worldbuilding through Artificial Intelligence. Laurie Rojas will provide contemporary art historical context to ground the work within a lineage of digital art.
A reception will follow where art and technology enthusiasts may gather and chat over drinks.
For those who cannot attend in person, this roundtable will be available to join on YouTube-Live.
Join the artist for a farewell tour of the exhibition, which explores the process of creating the video game Levels & Bosses through a multimedia installation.
