27th Letter Books and DARE-DARE are pleased to co-host a special launch of SATELLITE with one of the anthology's authors and artists: Louis Aguilar. This will be a special multimedia event featuring Aguilar's research and storytelling around Frida Kahlo's time in Detroit and a review of the decade-long Satellite initiative from DARE-DARE Program Coordinator Martin Dufrasne.
SATELLITE retraces the first trajectories of a program of cross-border artistic explorations initiated in 2011 by the DARE-DARE artist-run center as a satellite of its Montreal base. Covering works produced in three very different urban contexts (Detroit, Tijuana, Mexico), the book also offers a series of recent observations by the artists and host partners reviving meaningful memories, retracing the path of thought and experience, and revealing the imprint of the program on each artist's practice of creation. SATELLITE is a trilingual publication (english, español, français).
