Artist Talk with Cog•nate Collective

Public Articulation: An Artist Talk with Cog•nate Collective

During this presentation, binational Alta/Baja California-based Cog•nate Collective will speak about their community-embedded practice, which seeks to foster critical reflection and incite dialogue in everyday public spaces, establishing and expressing solidarity across, in spite, and against political delimitations.

Founded in 2010, Cog•nate Collective has sited their work primarily within markets to analyze how popular + informal forms of cultural + economic exchange taking place between transnational communities can be mobilized in defiance of solidifying political boundaries like the US/Mexico border.

Presented by CALA Alliance, ASU Performance in the Borderlands and ASU Art Museum 

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Since 2010, Tijuana-Los Angeles based artists + researchers Misael Diaz and Amy Sanchez have collaborated as Cog•nate Collective to develop community-based research projects + public interventions + experimental pedagogical programs in the US/Mexico border region. Their work has interrogated the evolution of the border as it is simultaneously erased by economic policies and bolstered through increased militarization — tracing the fallout of this incongruence for migrant communities on either side of the border. Siting their practice primarily within markets, they seek to analyze how popular + informal forms of cultural + economic exchange taking place between transnational communities can be mobilized in defiance of solidifying political boundaries — proposing an understanding of the border not as bifurcating line, but as a region expanding and contracting with the movement of people and objects.
