ESL | ESTHETICS AS A SECOND LANGUAGE is a debate interval between academia, art institutions and individuals, coordinated by artists Nate Harrison, Hugo Hopping and Mario Garcia Torres.
ESL is an outfit that aims to provide the stage to publicly discuss social matter in the art arena, envisioning art and thinking as potential agents for social intervention. It is a movable concept that migrates from physical to virtual space and hopes to encounter other significant areas of interaction. ESL is not a democratic nor an authoritarian organization but a flexible structure where everyone that participates becomes part of its development and expansion.
ESL is publicly known for a one-night event series hosted in east Los Angeles.
