The texts and images that follow were developed después de una cena. On the 12th of May. 2012. 1100 Kettner Boulevard. The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Jacobs building. Downtown San Diego. California.
There were a number of people present around and floating between the tables in Berglund, including Amy Sanchez, Anne Kindseth, Elizabeth Chaney, Cristina Scorza, as well as Shayla, Pia, Nicole, Basile, Alexandra, Julian, Nilo, Declan, Michael, Elivis, Adrian, and Ines (of the MCASD Teen Art Council).
Atop the tables…
Through dialogue, we traveled a number of pathways, considering
contemporary and historic transcontinental movements
de las siembras (y otros recursos, como agua),
of images, ideologies,
ways of thinking
the implications and impacts of these flows.
Conversation(s) triangulated between locations
by the milpa atop each table,
as approached, with impressions of three narratives
in the form of a film,
produced by a British artist (re: Isaac Julien),
over the course of a six-year period
of research, familiarization,
in Shanghai, China
in the wake of Morecambe Bay.
