Artists at Work: Joaquin Segura in Conversation with Sylvie Fortin
For this Artists at Work, ISCP artist-in-residence Joaquin Segura will discuss his practice and a forthcoming commission in Buenos Aires, 2024. He will be in conversation with interdependent curator, researcher, critic, and editor Sylvie Fortin. A Q&A with the audience will follow.
Joaquin Segura is a Mexico City-based artist whose research-driven process draws upon both historical and contemporary issues of power and politics. He works with installation, photography, video, and intervention to explore the ways in which ideologies are reproduced and repackaged across international borders. During his recent ISCP residency, Segura investigated the resurgence of totalitarian thought and widespread cultural conflict in the United States, focusing specifically on its impact on the Global South. He continues to research political turmoil of the 20th century, drawing from poetic voices active during these conflicts.
Segura has exhibited work at Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros, Mexico; La Panadería, Mexico; Museo Tamayo, Mexico; El Museo del Barrio, New York; Anthology Film Archives, New York; apexart, New York; LAXART, Los Angeles; MoLAA, Los Angeles; Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Texas; Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid; National Center for Contemporary Art, Moscow; and the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, among others.
