Digbeth First Friday: And what it became is not what it is now, Evening Opening & Publication Launch

6 September 2019

6 – 9pm

Overview

For September’s Digbeth First Friday, join us for the opening and publication launch of And what it became is not what it is now, an exhibition, publication and public programme curated by Louise Hobson.

And what it became is not what it is now, is a reflection of wandering dialogues between people, practices and languages, beginning in studio visits with 3 Latin American artists – Joaquín Aras, María Agustina Fernández Raggio and Paola Monzillo – and particular bodies of research by each. And what it became is not what it is now, is an exhibition, publication and public programme with contributions from Kim McAleese, Federica Bueti, Jen Calleja, Paul Eastwood, Helen Nisbet, Lorraine Ryan and Sophie Williamson

Showing in the UK for the first time, the exhibition presents Entre recuerdos & remakes – Ejercicio de Memoria (2018) by Joaquín Aras, Cinco Retratos Digitales (2016) by María Agustina Fernández Raggio and El Cuerpo alegorico de America (2017) by Paola Monzillo.
