Vicissitudes of the Visual Imaginary by Ana Tiscornia [White Wine Press No. 7]
White Wine Press No. 7
Ana Tiscornia, critic and Urugayan conceptual artist, writes about the artistic scene during the years of the dictatorship and after, and the difficulty of elaborating both a meaningful critical discourse and of creating the necessary cutural infrastructure.
In English and in Spanish. The book can be turned upside down and read in the reverse direction for the two different versions.
Ana Tiscornia is an Urguayan artist residing in New York since 1991. She is assistant professor in the the Art Department at SUNY College at Old Westbury, and is the Art Editor of "Point of Contact, the Journal of Verbal and Visual Arts," Syracuse. A frequent contributor to "Brecha"; Uruguary; "Art Nexus", Colombia; "Atlantica Internacional" and "Art.es" both from Spain, she has also published in numerous art related publications.
White Wine Press is a series of texts, one hundred being the goal, as an open project that seeks to wander a world. We are looking simply for those voices that have an urgency of saying. The artists are free to write about any subject, preferably about something outside the overwhelmingly present frames of their own work, or at least to come at the same in tangential fashion. In other words: state an interest.
The texts will be published in the original language and in an English translation. If the texts are written in English, they will be accompanied by a Spanish translation and thus cover two large linguistic areas. Our basic animal condition, as Charles Olson put it, is move/meant. We are now in movement and thank the artists for providing state/meant. There is no story that is not true.
