In Conversation: Marina Paulenka with Martine Gutierrez

Join FORMAT21 guest curator Marina Paulenka as she talks to artist, performer, and musician Martine Gutierrez about her work featuring in the group exhibition Matrix — fluid bodies, unlimited thoughts.

Martine Gutierrez explores gender, sexuality, race and class, as well as conventional ideals of beauty and identity. Acting as subject and producer, the artist creates photographs, music, billboard campaigns, films, performances, and satirical ads that juxtapose the consumable with the genuine. Interested in the ambiguous fluidity of relationships and the role of genders, her video works combine costume, photography and film. Gutierrez produces complex narrative scenes that use the symbolism of pop culture to reveal (gender) identity as a social construct.

This talk will take place via zoom. The link to join will be sent to all registered attendees before the event. The event will also be live streamed to the FORMAT Facebook Page.
