Artist Fran Ilich will speak about his current public project Aridoamérica: Winter Plan, within the larger context of his practice. Commissioned by ISCP, Aridoamérica is currently on view at El Museo de Los Sures. Ilich will converse with project curator Juliana Cope, followed by Q&A and reception.
Fran Ilich (born 1975 in Tijuana, Mexico) is a media artist, essayist and novelist based in New York City. He has participated in ARCO, Madrid; Berlinale Talent Campus; Documenta 12, Kassel; Transmediale, Berlin; How Latitudes Become Forms, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis and the Festival Mundial de la Digna Rabia, Mexico City.
El Museo de Los Sures was born from a partnership between Southside United with Cornell University and Churches United for Fair Housing to preserve the history of the neighborhood’s residents.

Cuomo; the New York State Legislature; New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council; Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and Antonio Reynoso, Council Member, 34th District; and The Milton and Sally Avery Arts Foundation.
