Sensorial Visualities: embodying together and alone with Guadalupe Martinez

October 5, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Guadalupe Martinez’s workshop will share tools from her newest work Sensorial Visualities: embodying together, and alone; a process of learning and making art that stems in sensorial awareness and inquiry. In part, Sensorial Visualities emerges as a desire to articulate the sensorial lived experience made palpable through movement, collaboration, and through writing.

The workshop will consist of exercises that foster attunement with the internal and external landscape and explore ways of creating a kind of sensorial aesthetic that is unique to each body and experience, individual and collective.

* For dance and visual artists, including emerging artists and those in post-secondary (or equivalent) training. Also, it is open to professionals or students interested in the fields of somatics and education. Wear comfortable clothing.

** Bring a quote/phrase/paragraph from a text or book that speaks to your present feeling, desire, interest, or curiosity.
***Please mention any accessibility needs on registration.

Date: Thursday, October 5
Time: 1:00 – 4:00 pm
Venue: Scotiabank Dance Centre, 677 Davie St. Vancouver


Short Bio

Guadalupe Martinez (Argentina, 1980) is an artist and educator making works that reflect on art, pedagogy, and place with the hope of creating spaces of connection, care, discovery, and world-making.

Her ongoing project CUERPO collective-body functions as a site and methodology to explore embodied research and somatic activism. A fluid group of emerging artists and mentors sharing knowledge, movement, and touch. A practice where embodied learning transforms conventional approaches to art production and education. A holistic process of liberating the body and the self, to occupy the often-disembodied spaces of academia and art institutions; allowing for a more expansive space to integrate and share knowledge. A search for a praxis where intimacy, embodiment and care may intersect through creative process.

Her work has been shown extensively in Argentina, US, Italy, Mexico and Canada at The Vancouver Art Gallery, SFU Art Gallery, Or Gallery, Access Gallery, VIVO Media Arts, Griffin Art Projects, Latitude 53, Grunt Gallery, VIVA! Art Action, LIVE! Biennale, Open Space Victoria, CIA (Centro de Investigaciones Artisticas), Palais de Glace, Museo del Grabado, Centro Cultural San Martin, Centro Cultural Borges, and Infr’Action Venezia among others.
