Inspired by Amalia Pica’s exhibition ears to speak of and Michael Landy’s exhibition DEMONSTRATION, Paula “Bomba” Gonzalez-Ossa will work with youth to explore language through graffiti, working together to illustrate the words that represent their collective identity while creating messages that subvert the dominant narratives of their communities. Participants will create a wall-based installation while documenting the process through drawing and video recording.
