ART &COM Work Displays History was originally a performance-installation-exhibition with mixed stories and interactions, created by Thiago Szmrecsanyi and Natalia de Campos/Syncretic Pleasures, to evolve with contributions by vendors of the Jamaica Colosseum Mall in Queens, New York.
It had its RE-LOCATION to Emma Thomas Gallery in the Lower East Side in November 2016 and then to São Paulo, Brazil in April 2017. It is a platform for social interaction and interventions that displays works created with materials and stories collected locally, and it has displayed work by its creators.
In Art in Odd Places 2017, a festival of art, performance and ideas curated by Nicolás Dumit Esteves Raful, Jodi Waynberg and Rocio Alvarado, ART&COM will bring COLLECTIVE BARGAIN to 14th street and will count with two more collaborators: Tracy Collins, a media artist, and Toya Mileno, a hacktivist, and participation by some organizations on 14th street of Manhattan. More info about the artists and partnerships will be available here soon.
