Join us for a presentation and conversation between curator/artist/researcher Hexe Fey and the collective Catrileo Carrion Community. The panelists will present their works in multi-disciplinary digital platforms that choreograph 2 Spirit/Trans/Queer identities through the notion of non-linear time. While Indigenous communities continue to witness the unfortunate legacy of a colonial past, the invited speakers incorporate art and technology as tools for community action and resilience.
This panel is part of the Archive of Resistance project showcasing Canadian and Latinx artists with practices inspired and created through the use of non-traditional archives to tell stories of community resistance from Indigenous, Afro-diasporic, and Trans perspectives.
Upcoming online exhibitions and related programming will showcase artists Jennifer Dysart (Canada), Lishan AZ (USA), Marton Robinson (Costa Rica/USA/Canada), and The Archive of Trans Memory (Argentina). Archive of Resistance is curated by soJin Chun and hosted by the CFMDC.

Catrileo+Carrión Community (Wallmapu/Chile – Kumeyaay Land/San Diego, CA):
We are a two-spirit Mapuche (Epupillan) community that develops research-creation artistic projects that are intimately linked to specific territories and communities. We have been working since 2015 from Wallmapu/Chile and now our community is located both in California/Kumayaay land and South America. This hemispheric experience gives us a privileged point of view to see social change, land disputes and colonization from a broad perspective.
We have worked from art crossing our biographies with diverse materialities and contexts with whom we get involved. We use video, archives, writing and weaving as practices that are intertwined with our own life. As a two-spirit non reproductive community we use our vital energy to connect with others (human and non-humans) to share reflections and concerns. We use our biographies and positionalities to depict indigenous life as an ever changing, deeply rooted and critical practice, but also a transformative and creative force.
We engage in a practice of occupation and re-structuring of the surface of the video/projection. We understand these surfaces as interfaces for decolonization, territorial imagination and re-connection with each other. We believe in a future where a queer BIPOC utopia is possible, and we are rehearsing this idea in our everyday artistic and political practice.
