OBORO welcomes Mexican artist, curator and cultural activist Juan José Díaz Infante to Montreal for 2010 Res Artis Conference.
As part of his performance, Díaz Infante will demonstrate how to eat a chair as he speaks of different ways of making art today. Audience will be encouraged to try.
Play informs Juan José Díaz Infante's work, be it his OBORO performance, or his participation at the Res Artis Conference. In this spirit, the artist organized the multidisciplinary festival Play! in Mexico City last Spring. With a nod to former chess players Marcel Duchamp, Bobby Fischer and Che Guevara, Juan José Díaz Infante conceives of play as a way of knowing and as an opportunity for meetings, but also as a keen starting point for creative endeavors.
