¨FEMALE MIGRATIONS / MIGRACIONES FEMENINAS¨ Artists: Karina Aguilera Skvirsky, Amanda Gutiérrez, Esperanza Mayobre, and Simone Couto Curators: Se habla español (SHE) Noelia Lecue, Maria Alejandra Saenz, Andrea Valencia, Natalia Viera ¨Female Migrations¨ is a program curated by Se habla español (SHE) that invites four Latin American artists that address the female perspective of migration. The program, a series of four events that will take place at La Nacional, will present site-specific works by Karina Aguilera Skvirsky, Simone Couto, Amanda Gutiérrez, and Esperanza Mayobre. How does the female gaze experiences migration? How is the journey of men different from the forgotten and visceral experience of migrating as a woman? Female Migrations calls attention to the historic dismissed role and view of women in this current and dire issue, through the personal experiences and artistic practices of the invited artists. July 10th - Karina Aguilera Skvirsky. ¨The Perilous Journey of María Rosa Palacios and How to Build a Wall and Other Ruins: PAPERS.¨ Screening and live performance. ¨The Perilous Journey of María Rosa Palacios¨ is a hybrid documentary-fictional tale to pay homage to the artist’s Afro-Ecuadorian’s great grandmother’s story of migration. ¨How to build a wall and other ruins: PAPERS¨ absorbs the debates around the engineering feats of Inca architecture. The participatory performance links popular narratives concerning the persistence of pre-Columbian identity with current discourses about borders, migration, and nationhood. Karina Aguilera Skvirsky (Ecuador) is a multidisciplinary artist that works mainly with photographs, video, and performance. She is an Associate Professor in the Department of Art at Lafayette College, Easton PA.

She is currently working on “How to build a wall and other ruins,” with the support of Creative Capital. Her work can be seen in fairs such as ARCO Madrid, NADA Miami or PARC Lima and has been included in museum collections like Urbes Muatantes, The Whitney Museum of American Art, SFMOMA, and the Art Institute of Chicago. Se habla español is a curatorial collective established in NYC in 2017, which is comprised of Noelia Lecue Francia, María Alejandra Sáenz García, Andrea Valencia Aranda, and Natalia Viera Salgado, from Spain, Colombia, Mexico, and Puerto Rico respectively. As Spanish speakers and curators, the collective works on artistic and social projects that expand the limits of language, addressing migration, identity, human rights, and memory. ¨How to build a wall and other ruins: PAPERS¨ is made possible with funds from Creative Engagement or Creative Learning, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by LMCC.
