The Persistent Caravan [Forthcoming]
Site-Specific Collaborative Multimedia Installation with Aurora Molina for The Projects, FAT Village, Fort Lauderdale, FL
Assorted Fabric, Sculpture, Multichannel Sound, Multichannel Video
The Persistent Caravan is a collaborative, immersive, multi-disciplinary installation by artists Aurora Molina and Edison Peñafiel that will be shown at FATVillage Projects, in Fort Lauderdale, from January 25th to April 6th, 2020.
This collaboration focuses on socio-political issues relevant to both artists’ personal and collective experiences as migrants, including the physical and emotional struggles migrants live through their often-perilous journeys. The intent of presenting this work is to encourage dialogue around migration, displacement, and internment, all pressing matters in our current political climate.
The Persistent Caravan will create a powerful experiential environment that will engage all the senses of the viewers, and hopefully, help them to better understand and empathize with the reasons people are willing to leave everything behind, and risk their lives for the hope of a better future.
Funding for this project is provided in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward Cultural Council.
