The exhibition is the museum’s first online artist residency, foregrounding the department’s year-round commitment to contemporary art and pedagogy centered on personal and social growth. In this occasion, the international collective Ensayos (translated as “inquiries,” “essays,” or “rehearsals” in English) will develop and present new work through this digital residency.
Over the years Ensayos has defined itself as an interdisciplinary residency, a transdisciplinary research program, an ecofeminist collective, a public health service, and a curatorial exercise. During this progression Ensayos has always been focused on process more than on outcome.
In all of its forms, Ensayos insists on the regenerative potential of open-ended, undisciplined creative research that carefully assembles independent researchers with indigenous communities, local organizations, institutions, governing bodies, and other entities.
