Artist-in-residence Francisca Benítez presents some of her recent and upcoming projects. These include de-fence LNP, a site-specific performance piece for 26 dancers and 13 barricades in Louise Nevelson Plaza, New York; and her upcoming show at MAVI, Santiago, where she plans to transform the exhibition space into a fully functioning sign language school. As a preview to the work she will produce in Chile, this talk will be translated simultaneously into British Sign Language.
