The Tijuana-based artist will be, alongside Carlos Motta, the author of a virtual and material work in the framework of our 2021-2022 Club Terremoto membership campaign
Tijuana-based visual artist Andrew Roberts will be, alongside Carlos Motta, the author of an exclusive Club Terremoto edition for its 2021-2022 annual membership campaign. On this occasion, Andrew Roberts will conceive a special virtual and interactive experience, which will be offered to new or returning members of Club Terremoto in a digital iteration as an NFT (Non-Fungible Token) which can be purchased on a specialized platform to be announced, and will also include a material piece developed with TAJO Taller.
“Terremoto’s hard work in the production, critique and dissemination of artistic content has been instrumental not only in the exposure given to my personal projects, but also to the independent spaces within their network. As a queer person, I also feel that I find that their push towards decolonial, queer and anti-colorist visions and politics is fundamental. For all of these reasons, supporting Terremoto through its artist editions program couldn’t be more relevant.“
