On this occasion, Sierralta and Alvarado will present their most recent and in-progress work that ranges from photography to video to drawing and plastic arts. For both artists, the observation of the mundane and the intimate is a drive for their practices. It will be a night of dialog, mixtures and overlaps between themes, methods and media, and to that end New York-based Venezuelan musician Ernesto Brando will be performing and improvising alongside one of the exhibited video projects, and in conversation with fellow Venezuelan musician and bassist Fernando Colombet.
