I had the chance to sit down with Ana as she was finishing up co-curating FALOLO4EVER at the Little Berlin Annex here in Philadelphia. From the Little Berlin home page:
"All artists included in this exhibition attended TrueQué Residency 2016 http://www.trueque.work/. TrueQue is a residence for emerging artists, activists and cultural managers whose practice reflects on being latin American inside and outside Ecuador. TrueQue seeks to create a space or creative exploration where research, networking and cross-disciplinary practices become an integral part of the process of creating art."
The work in Falolo 4Ever challenged traditional and accepted cultural norms as they pertain to race, gender, language, cultural boundaries, post-colonialism, and much more.
Ana talks with me about this show and the residency she attended. We discuss the artists' work hanging in the Annex as we walk around the gallery.
Later in the episode we also talk about Ana's work, and she's been very busy early on in December. Last week her solo exhibition, Sky Skin, opened at James Oliver Gallery in Philadelphia. This week more of her work appears at the experimental non-profit gallery Liliput, in Puebla, Mexico. Both solo shows, and both exhibitions focus on work Ana discusses in this episode.
