Nuria Montiel: Music Footprints

Over the course of three weeks this fall, ISCP resident Nuria Montiel collaborated with Brooklyn Preparatory high school students to create an installation based on her art work. Contributing students gained insight into contemporary art practices while creating a twenty-foot site-specific work with Montiel along the corridors of Brooklyn Prep. The work is based on a sentence chosen by the students printed onto the wall with letters resembling footsteps, to literally leave a mark or make a stand. Music Footprints was developed as part of ISCP’s Participatory Projects initiative that brings the work of resident artists into the public realm.

Salon: Lauri Astala and Nuria Montiel

Lauri Astala will present documentation of his participatory video installations. He will discuss the sense of space and social encounter that accompanies the threshold between virtual and real space when the spectator is made an active protagonist. He will also introduce a new work in progress – a project filmed at the ISCP with nine New York-based dancers.

Nuria Montiel will discuss her most recent work All Voices / Mobile Printing Press, which explores the relationship between graphic and social struggles. This work looks at how people generate information and how it circulates through language in the context of protest.
