LOS ANGELES– South of Fletcher: Artist Talk

September 24, 2018 @ 12:00 pm1:30 pm

LOS ANGELES– Join Fonografia Collective for an artist talk at Occidental College’s Choi Auditorium. Ruxandra Guidi and Bear Guerra will discuss their project South of Fletcher: Stories from the Bowtie, sharing notes about their process, stories that didn’t make the cut, and some of the challenges and victories involved in bringing this project to light. The exhibition for South of Fletcher: Stories from the Bowtie is on view at Occidental’s Weingart gallery through November 4. Listen to the podcast here. Fonografia Collective is a collaboration between Ruxandra Guidi and Bear Guerra. Fonografia believes in empathetic and culturally-sensitive documentary storytelling about everyday people around the world. Fonografia finds and crafts compelling stories about human rights, politics, the environment, and social issues and share them with the general public using radio, photography, the printed word, multimedia, public installations and events. Since 2005, Fonografia has been working together to advance a vision of a more inclusive and diverse approach to nonfiction storytelling, focusing on communities and issues across the U.S. and Latin America that are often underrepresented or misunderstood by the mainstream media. Currently based in Los Angeles, Fonografia’s most recent project is a collaboration with public radio station KCRW on a year-long multimedia storytelling series about aging. Explore this project, “Going Gray in LA,” here. This project is supported by  California Humanities through an Humanities for All Quick Grant.
