> DESCRIPTION

The Jack Olson Gallery will serve as a public platform for ARTLab, featuring experimental displays including HOME, a collaberative instillation coordinated by the artist-team Alain Guerra and NIU alumnus Neraldo de la Paz. Known collectively as Guerra de la Paz (www.guerradelapaz.com), or "War of the Peace," these Cuban-born, Miami-based artists use discarded clothing to create lyrical yet sobering commentary on consumption, the environment, and social conflict.

Guerra de la Paz will be in residence at NIU February 15-27, working with students to construct a functional "global village" in Olson Gallery, using locally collected, recycled materials. Inspired by temporary structures from nomadic, indigenous and homeless peoples, the resulting shelters will offer solutions for sleeping, eating, and social interaction- a sculptural instillation that is a home.
