Voluspa Jarpa: UCLA Department of Art Lecture
- This is a past program
Copresented by the UCLA Department of Art
Chilean artist Voluspa Jarpa investigates the broader notion of the archive by synthesizing popular discourse, declassified documents, state symbols, urban space, personal narratives, and psychoanalytic theory. Using materials as disparate as oil on canvas to lasers, Jarpa analyzes the construction of hegemonic history and memory, taking into account its inherent erasures and absences. Jarpa also explores ways to emancipate ourselves from these structures and facilitate a more transparent telling of past, present, and future.
Among her numerous solo exhibitions such as En nuestra pequeña región de por acá at MALBA, Buenos Aires (2016) and L'effet Charcot at La Maison de l'Amerique Latine in Paris (2010), Voluspa Jarpa has participated in many international exhibitions, including the Venice Biennale, Italy (2019); Shanghai Biennial, China (2018); Parapolitics: Cultural Freedom and the Cold War at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin (2017–2018); and the 31st Sao Paulo Biennial, Brazil (2014), among others. She is currently participating in the BAM-Biennial of the Mediterranean Archipelago, curated by Beatrice Merz, with the work False Flag (2022).
