Guillermo Gudiño + Georgia Wall:
52 Translations is an ongoing long-term collaborative work created through a series of long distance, multidisciplinary exchanges. The process began in September 2011 when Georgia, an American artist based in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood, and Guillermo, a Mexican artist based in Mexico City, established a structure for communicating through continual translations. The project will be completed in September 2012 when all 52 Translations have been created.
On July 28th at the NMMA Gudiño and Wall will be staging a live version of this process. Wall will be present and in conversation with Gudiño who will call in from abroad via Skype. During the performance the artists will work together to create a rapid set of translation exchanges revealing a bit more about the process behind 52 Translations.
