12:00—1:00 pm

We Been Here, with William Camargo, Genesis Báez, and Lindsay Buchman

            This conversation brings together  photographers William Camargo and Genesis Báez, moderated by Lindsay Buchman, to discuss Camargo's recent publication, We Been Here. The publication depicts Anaheim, California, as a contested site, examining gentrification, colonized land, and Mexican, Chicanx, and Latinx histories. We Been Here enacts counterstories to challenge the erasure and mischaracterization of Latinx communities, revealing buried histories of oppression and disempowerment in the region contrasted by community activism. Together, Báez and Camargo will discuss their lens-based practices and the importance of photographic narratives to empower and rewrite dominant canons of photography while exploring the relationship between place, land, and community within visual representation. Presented by Seaton Street Press.

This essential discussion is for bookmakers, artists, curators and everybody who understands the tropics not only as geography but as a state of mind. The conversation will take the form of a guide to surviving art from the global south. Presented by Terminal Ediciones and Gato Negro Ediciones.

The Artists’ Magazine: A Parallel Practice, with Ho Tam (HO TAM), Mira Schor and Susan Bee (M/E/A/N/I/N/G), Sreshta Rit Premnath (Shifter Magazine) and Tammy Nguyen (Martha’s Quarterly)

            The founding editors of four artists' magazines will reflect on the richness, promise, and challenge of the medium. They will discuss how artmaking and publication making—particularly the artist magazine as a form—function as parallel communal and discursive spaces. The panelists will expand on Gwen Allen’s observation that artists' magazines are “not merely secondary or supplementary to other kinds of alternative spaces.” Rather, publishing is another mode of making art public. Presented by Shifter Magazine.
