Meet Over Lunch: La Nueva Fábrica – a conversation with Jamie Denburg Habie
Monday September 26, 2022 | 1:00pm
360 Court Street (main green church doors), Brooklyn NY 11231
In addition to taking place in-person at RU, this program will be streamed online via Zoom at this link.
We invite you to meet Jamie Denburg Habie, current curator-in-residence at RU, who will present La Nueva Fábrica's contemporary art space in Antigua, Guatemala.
La Nueva Fábrica promotes creative experimentation through exhibitions, public programs and education, residency programs, and multidisciplinary workshops. Jamie will talk about GRITO [SCREAM](2022), the first institutional survey in the Americas of the Guatemalan performance artist Regina José Galindo, curated by Maya Juracán. Accompanied by a catalogue and a rich pedagogical program, GRITO highlights the relevance of Galindo’s practice at a time when the Guatemalan State threatens to ban gay marriage, limit sexual education to the home and criminalize women’s autonomy over their own bodies.
Recent exhibitions at La Nueva Fábrica include the first mid-career survey of Antonio Pichillá Quiacaín, exploring the Maya Tzu’tujil worldview through a socio-political lens while problematizing European notions of formalism. Other notable shows are REPÚBLICA, a critical view of 200 years of Guatemalan Statehood, and La Nueva Fábrica's participation in the 22nd Bienal de Arte Paiz, one of the longest-standing biennials in Latin America.
Jamie Denburg Habie is an artist and cultural practitioner. She is Co-Founder and Director of La Nueva Fábrica in Antigua, Guatemala. Jamie holds a BA from the Gallatin School of Individualized Study, New York University, where she focused her research on the role of art in conflictive cultures and the effects of violence on art-making. As an artist, Jamie explores how earth, mind and body can be intermeshed to decentralize consciousness, particularly through the lens of neuroscience and materiality.
