> DESCRIPTION

Miguel Arzabe's work is an intimate exploration of deep influences arising from his Bolivian heritage, his ancestors, and their legends. El otoño mío es tu primavera (my autumn is your spring)combines new video and painting in an installation that references the spatial distance, the subjective understanding, and the unrelenting passage of time that exists between two homes in different hemispheres.

On two occasions, CCA will screen two new films by Miguel Arzabe. Opening night: March 15, 6-8pm in the CCA Studio, April 21, 4pm: Join Miguel and his father as they discuss the process of making Leyendas del Altiplano, and share additional stories, legends, and family tales.

Full Moon Over Galisteo, 2012, is a quiet meditation on the struggle for connection and understanding. Filmed in the desert outside the village of Galisteo, home to Lucy Lippard, author of the influential compilation on conceptual art "The Dematerialization of the Art Object," this piece is an homage to new forms of art-making.

Leyendas del Altiplano, 2013, is a personal reinterpretation of an indigenous legend told to the artist's grandfather while working as a teacher in the Altiplano in the 1940s. He wrote and illustrated a compilation of these legends which provide the basis for this project. Featuring contributions from the artist's extended family and illustrations and photographs from Bolivian books, this short film tells the story of mountain gods who are tricked into bloody war over a beautiful woman.
