Artist Talk with Guadalupe Martinez
June 3, 2021
Please join us for an artist talk with Guadalupe Martinez.
Guadalupe Martinez is an interdisciplinary artist and educator interested in understanding the multiple and complex relationships between identity and place. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, she immigrated to Vancouver in 2008, where she lives and works -conscious of her presence on the unceded territories of the xwməθkwəy̓ əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples.
Placing the body at the centre of her practice, Martinez’ work often takes the form of installation, performance, and collaborative research with a deep consideration for her personal and inherited histories. Through somatic practices and collaboration Martinez creates alternative spaces of learning and explores the potential for embodied research and love-actions to heal and decolonize the body-mind. Her commitment to spirituality, teaching, and political awareness underlies the development of her work in diverse contexts and she has presented work in Canada, the US, Italy, Mexico and Argentina.
