Residency

What a Strange Light
Felipe Mujica
January 17 — February 17, 2007

Based in New York City, Felipe Mujica belongs to a generation of Chilean artists who began working in the 1990s, during a critical historical moment characterized by the country’s transition to democracy. He is also one of the founders of Galería Chilena, an artist collective that organized a series of nomadic contemporary art exhibitions in Santiago in the late 1990s.

As ‘Artist in Residence’ at the Or Gallery Mujica worked with a group of deaf actors to re-enact two scenes from Fellini’s “Nights Of Cabiria” using only sign language and gestures. He also presented a talk and slide show at colourschool (UBC) documenting the activities of Galería Chilena and the cultural landscape of Santiago in the 90s.
