Please be prepared to introduce yourself to the AGM attendees, and to describe the ways in which you would be a good candidate for the SAVAC Board. Please submit the nomination form to board@savac.net with the subject line: Board Member Application.

The AGM will open with a public talk by Coco Guzman, Spanish queer artist who uses drawing to tell stories of haunting in the context of political violence. The talk will explore their concurrent exhibition in the Bachir/Yerex Presentation Space at 401 Richmond. Titled las cosas que se quedan / the things that remain, it explores the deadly borderscapes of southern Spain. In Spanish from Spain there is a particular way of identifying someone as queer, we use the verb “entender”, “to understand”.In the talk, Coco will propose their work as an exercise in “understanding” history, embodied memories and political action to demonstrate how queerness functions as the methodological core of their politically-engaged art-making.
