OPENING RECEPTION AND PERFORMANCE: TUESDAY, MARCH 6, 2018 7 – 9PM
MARCH 6 – 30, 2018
AC Institute is pleased to present Intruder (America), a new piece by Carlos Martiel on March 6th, 2018 at 7 pm. The exhibition will be on view from March 6 – 30, 2018.
Intruder (America) is the first of two iterations of a new performance by Cuban artist Carlos Martiel. The piece derives its inspiration from the current migratory crisis that has quickly intensified and exacerbated in the United States after the election of Donald Trump.
As the first of a two-part piece being presented in the United States, the second piece will be presented in Europe. Both continents have an exceeding impact in the world’s migration pattern and have been the catalyst for the current migratory effects around the world. The piece reflects on the political migrations that have restricted access to immigrants and those seeking political asylum in the United States, similar to the xenophobia and hostility that many immigrant groups face today inside immigration detention centers.
