Reimagining the Pacific in Cubo Abierto

Cubo Abierto no. 5 (Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Lima)

The most recent edition of Cubo Abierto, the magazine published by our partner organisation MAC Lima, has two pieces related to Reimagining the Pacific.

In the first, Paul Merchant and the Chilean art historian Catalina Valdés are in conversation with Giuliana Vidarte, one of the museum’s curators, about art, ecology and environmental crisis in Chile and Peru.

The second is an essay by Paul on two ways of thinking about ecological art: as a form of immersion, and as a form of rupture. Spoiler: the two need not be mutually exclusive…

We are looking forward to further collaborations – watch this space for news of an event in Santiago de Chile in July!
