Dear Aliens, We Are Ready - 09.04.21 -20.06.21

Date: 9th April 2021

David's work, Mazar, Texas will be shown at the Galeria de la Ciudad, Tecate, Mexico. The exhibition, Dear Aliens, We Are Ready, curated by PASTOR PROJECTS, includes new and existing works by the artists: MARIEL MIRANDA (MX), DAVID COTTERRELL (UK), IRMA SOFÍA POETER (MX), GRO SARAUW (DK), ALEJANDRO ZACARIAS (MX), RYAN GANDER (UK), MÓNICA ARREOLA (MX).

To coincide with the exhibition, the director of Pastor Projects and curator of the show, Thomas Vann-Altheimer, with the support of LOOKING FORWARD and Empathy & Risk, will be in conversation with the artists for video interviews to be premiered during online live events in the second half of April 2021. The public programme will offer insights on the practice of the seven artists involved in the show.

In June 2021, Empathy & Risk, with the support of Sheffield Hallam University and the Global Challenge Research Fund will curate a three-part symposium, THE OTHER Dialogues, articulating inter-disciplinary debate exploring the limitation of international understanding that can be reinforced through distance. The three parts will relate to the topics of nationalism, labour, and gentrification. A press release with the program of the symposium and registration modalities will follow separately.

Images from the exhibition, critical texts, and contributions from THE OTHER Dialogues interdisciplinary symposium will be collated in a book published by Abismos Editorial Empathy & Risk, edited by Carolina Lio and Sidharta Ochoa.
