A Conversation with Beta-Local

FRI, July 26, 2019
6:30 pm

Floor 3, Susan and John Hess Family Gallery and Theater

This conversation between the three co-directors of Beta-Local—2019 Biennial artist Sofía Gallisá Muriente and artists Pablo Guardiola and Michael Linares—presents the programs and day-to-day operations of the artist-run non-profit through the many forms of collaboration put into practice over the last ten years.

Founded in 2009 by two artists and a curator, Beta-Local is based in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Through their programs, they develop long-term relationships based on knowledge exchange that strengthen a wide network of cultural workers and generate new ways of sharing artistic and cultural work beyond established circuits. Beta-Local's critical and practical workshops engage with the conditions of the tropics, the Caribbean, the Puerto Rican colonial context, and the present.

Tickets are required ($10 adults; $8 members, students, seniors, and visitors with a disability).
