Gallery Talk—Claudia Joskowicz: Every Building on Avenida Alfonso Ugarte—After Ruscha

Gallery for New Media

Join Albright-Knox Curatorial Assistant Jasmine Magaña for a discussion of the exhibition Claudia Joskowicz: Every Building on Avenida Alfonso Ugarte—After Ruscha.

Every Building on Avenida Alfonso Ugarte—After Ruscha, 2011, documents everyday movement in El Alto, one of the fastest-growing urban centers in Bolivia and also the site of violent clashes during the Bolivian gas conflict of 2003. In Joskowicz’s hands, El Alto embodies the intersection between everyday life and recent historical events that shape Bolivia’s political and social landscape as well as its international reputation. This installation marks the first time this work has been shown in a museum in the United States.

Another gallery talk on Claudia Joskowicz: Every Building on Avenida Alfonso Ugarte—After Ruscha will take place at 7:30 pm.
