The pertinent concepts of shelter and identity will be explored in this year’s projects and programming (highlights include Deus Cortado, a site-specific installation of paintings, sculpture, and stop-motion animations by Thiago Martins de Melo, Hotspot, a beach tent installation by Bogotá’s CARNE and San Juan’s Km 0.2, and Sergio Vega’s Shanty: on the mimetic faculty, a shanty dwelling comprised of discarded and raw materials).
