    In conjunction with In Practice: Literally means collapse, artists Ignacio Gatica and Alan Martín Segal host an evening of readings from texts and poems by the interlocutors that have shaped the projects developed and presented in the exhibition. Accompanying the program will be a limited run “cheat sheet” reader produced by the two artists that collate writing by their close network of collaborators and influences including contributions by Juan Carreño, Gabriel Osorio, Cristalina Parra, Carlos Soto Roman, and a non-rigorous translation of Ezequiel Martinez Estrada by Alan Martín Segal.

    The readings will be accompanied by a DJ set by Iván Navarro and Hueso Records.

    This program will be bilingual in Spanish and English.

    Capacity is limited and RSVP is required. Please RSVP here.

    Ignacio Gatica was born in Santiago, Chile and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Gatica works in installation, sculpture, video, and text to question systems of knowledge that configure personal and collective experiences. Concerned from an analytical standpoint with the experience of urban living, Gatica’s work modifies the elements that construct these socio-political spaces, merging data, materials, and theoretical frameworks to reconfigure particular views.

    Alan Martín Segal lives and works between Buenos Aires and New York. He received his MFA from the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College. Segal’s films were screened at the New York Film Festival, Viennale, Rencontres Internationales and Louvre Museum. Forthcoming projects include his first feature film commissioned by the Jeonju International Film Festival, Korea.

    Hueso Records (HR) is a music label that began releasing projects in Brooklyn, US and Santiago, Chile in 2006. The label has three main interests:

    1. To find, restore and release music that has never been released before, either because there weren’t enough funds or public interest to produce it when the music was originally recorded: Pinochet Boys from 1984, Indice de Desempleo from 1988, Electrodomesticos from 1990, Minimal Technology from 1994, and Acid Call from 2007, among others.

    2. To work with people who don’t consider themselves musicians, rather they understand their audio practice as an extension of their main body of work as poets, visual artists, architects, graphic designers or just as thinkers: Cecilia Vicuña, NutriaNN, Maestro, Cleopatras, La Nueva Grafica Chilena, Joe Villablanca, Offending Comand, Montaña Extendida and Mario Navarro. HR calls this “Undefined Records”.

    3. Professional musicians are the other point that completes this triangle, because they have the knowledge and the experience to show us how the music industry works these days. They play Pop, Rock and Electronic music: Jorge Gonzalez, AtomTM, Tunde Adebimpe, Panico, Electrodomesticos, and Alvaro Peña.
