Cycle 2 of Loosely Assembled is entitled, SCORE FOR A DIALOGUE BETWEEN PEOPLE. Danielle Aubert, Bianca Ibarlucea and Kikko Paradela are artists, researchers and graphic designers, all currently based in Detroit. For Cycle 2, they will carry on the conversation of design as a tool and a scaffold, arranging a conversation in the form of a score, a performance, a publication and an archive that weaves together their various practices, investigating how work happens, together; what is brought to the fore, what is left behind, what is seen and what is not?
By thinking through a variety of strategies intended to turn invisible processes visible --- including new voice technology/text to speech; scoring methods such as Leonard Halprin’s RSVP cycles, and organizing theories such as Paolo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed --- the group (with Ibarlucea working remotely) have developed a score for visualizing their work together. Over 3 days, they will engage the materials they’ve brought for inclusion in Loosely Assembled’s INDEX (la.sbcgallery.ca): posters, protest signs, books, zines, pamphlets, and other ephemera. Each participant will perform for 5-8 minutes each over a scheduled 2 hour period. Following each series, they will pull together reference materials that were used for their lectures, and position these alongside the materials in the INDEX. They will collectively produce a publication, readable on-site for a public reception, Saturday April 27, that will remain available in the gallery and online for the remainder of the exhibition.
