The Furnace at the Firehouse: Franklin Furnace presents Anahi Caceres' at DCTV April 30, 2001!
Franklin Furnace is proud to present Anahí Cáceres, a grant recipient and artist in residence in its series, THE FUTURE OF THE PRESENT 2001, presented at DCTV's new Cyberstudio program Live From Downtown!
Monday, April 30, 2001,
Join us live and online, more details to follow.
Anahí Cáceres' project, YIWE, is an interactive installation involving the consideration of the historical revision of Pre-Colombian cultures assigning new value to old artistic and ceremonial concepts as per their link to contemporary art; emphasizing the importance of the community in a work of art. The artist will handle, through electronic sensors, a nonmaterial "virtual" image of a ritual Pre-Colombian object (the YIWE). In real time, the performance will be located in the space and on the web. All modifications will be seen on both planes of reality.
Anahí Cáceres' new work, YIWE, will be followed with an interactive Q&A with Anahí and Franklin Furnace's Founding Director, Martha Wilson.
