Paseo Artist Talk: Caitlyn Au 

Taos artist Caitly Au’s will discuss her installation for PASEO 2019, titled When Shouting Produces No Echo. It reinterprets the mid-autumn tradition of moon viewing with a series of small video projects. Tucked into the built environment and hidden in plain sight, the projections are non-spectacles. They do not solicit attention; rather, they are stumbled upon and discovered, engaging viewers’ sense of curiosity and delight.

Au’s work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Hammerspace Gallery (Portland) and Saranac Art Projects (Washington), and was featured in group exhibitions at Spring/Break Art Show (New York) and Unnamed Gallery (New York). She has been an artist-in-residence at Art Farm Nebraska, Laboratory Spokane, and DongDong & LuLu China. In 2020 she will be an artist-in-residence at the Santa Fe Art Institute. Au holds a BFA in Glass from the Rhode Island School of Design.

Screening: Trash Dance

Sometimes inspiration can be found in unexpected places. Choreographer Allison Orr finds beauty and grace in the movements of garbage trucks and the usually unseen men and women who pick up our trash. Filmmaker Andrew Garrison follows Orr as she rides along with Austin sanitation workers on their daily routes to observe and later convince them to perform a most unlikely spectacle. A documentary film by Andrew Garrison starring Virginia Alexander, Don Anderson, Lee Houston. Wednesday’s screening will include a Special PASEO 2019 Preview with Director/Curator Matt Thomas.

Screened three nights at TCA, Sept 9 – 11, 7:00pm. $8.50 general, $7 TCA members

Workshop: La Llorona, HERstoricized

Tessa Cordova and Las Pistoleras, with Paseo artist Rica Maestas, present a creative educational workshop that sheds light and empowers the true history of La Llorona and La Malinche as an espejo (mirror) to one another. Maestas will incorporate this content into her PASEO 2019 Acequia Aquî piece: tours of the downtown acequias led by La Llorona herself. The legend of La Llorona is no different. As we continue to understand our own personal, cultural and historical identities as Chicanas and Chicano people as a whole, it is important to understand that all of our stories originate in truth and experience.
