Walk with the Devil: Latin American Art in the West @ Canal Projects

By Canal Projects

Join us for the inaugural event for Montez Press Radio’s library residency at Canal Projects!

MPR’s first sub-resdient Fabiola Talavera has curated a full program for the evening, including a playlist designed by Hueso Records and a conversation between Patrick Charpenel and Ignacio Gatica. Following the conversation, MPeach will bless us with a DJ set. Full schedule below, come join us for a cold drink and a good time!

7-8 PM
Compilation 1 by Hueso Records

Six forgotten recordings found by artist Iván Navarro, issued by Hueso Records as Compilation 1 (2023). These recordings were never published, or only circulated among a very small group of people mainly in homemade cassettes. These recordings were made during the most obscure period of the Pinochet regime (1973-1990). The musicians, including Pinochet Boys, Cleopatras, Índice de Desempleo, Electrodomésticos, Banda Pequeño Vicio and Álvaro Peña, represented the spirit of the moment.

8-9 PM
Walk with the Devil: Latin American Art in the West, Patrick Charpenel and Ignacio Gatica in conversation moderated by Fabiola Talavera

A discussion that will explore what is recognized as contemporary art from Latin America in Western cultural institutions, the labels and stereotypes attached to this diaspora, the way these artistic productions confront hegemonic structures and adopt inclusive practices, and the role of geographical surveys and exhibition models such as biennials and triennials have in shaping localized identity narratives while now living in a highly-interconnected globalized world. The title of this talk, Walk with the Devil, refers to what Cuban curator and critic Gerardo Mosquera describes as the often-fruitful pact made when historically colonized cultures digest the culture of colonizers.
