Friday, October 20 – Wednesday December 7, 2023
Latcham Art Centre – 2 Park Drive, Stouffville
Max Lupo and José Andrés Mora explore the power and playfulness of words using technology. Mora’s videos and prints open up conversations about memory, cultural hybridity, and assimilation while highlighting the intimacy of language. Lupo reprograms obsolete devices, like typewriters and rotary phones, to reveal personal stories and machine-made wisdom. Taken together, the works in Continuous Memory ask us to consider what is required to give meaning to language, and how that meaning can change as our relationships to words shift.
The artists would like to acknowledge funding support from the Ontario Arts Council and the Government of Ontario for their support.
