Artists Cristóbal Martínez and Kade Twist of Postcommodity will lead the evening with a discussion about their diverse practice. Their art has bridged the US-Mexico border, and projected sound into Aristotle's Lyceum. Through an indigenous lens, the collective's distinctive practice brings history and social discourse to bear on complex issues. The work of art that they have created for the Carnegie International embodies Pittsburgh's industrial history in steel, glass, and coal. Hear Martínez and Twist speak about the complexities of creating visual language and narrative around issues that challenge us today.
