ARTS@DRCLAS Artist Residency stand on the meeting of two eternities, the past and future, which is precisely the present moment is an artist residency where a group of artists has been invited to produce small interventions in the space of Concepcion41 in relation to the idea of art as a form of knowledge and its relationship with other fields of knowledge, particularly the sciences.  Through the support of DRCLAS, Prof. Jimena Canales (Dept. of History of Science, FAS, Harvard), will be attending the residency to partake in the dialogue about the production of the work, and culminating in a keynote address discussing the critical aspects of visual studies in science.  This residency, curated by Emiliano Valdes, is conceived as the first of a two-part collaborative project with DRCLAS, the first to take place in June 2013 with the contribution of Jimena Canales, the second one planned for June 2014 co-curated with Prof. Sergio Delgado (Dept. of Romance Languages, FAS, Harvard).

Concepcion41, set among the ruins of La Concepcion in La Antigua, Guatemala, is a critical space, open to creative and experimental artistic practices and the development of cultural knowledge focused on interdisciplinary and intercultural collaborations based on dialogue and production.  It was recently in launched in January 2013.  Program director Maria Rondeau is an architect and artist based in Cambridge, MA.
