Marcus Kuiland-Nazario | MACHO STEREO
Workshops
Brentwood Art Center | 13031 Montana Avenue
Wednesday, 4/10 | 6-8 pm
Wednesday, 4/17 | 6-8 pm

You are invited to participate in MACHO STEREO, a project by artist Marcus Kuiland-Nazario about father and their sons in Santa Monica.

MACHO STEREO is a new body of work by Marcus Kuiland-Nazario based on the 1955 Mexican novel Pedro Páramo by Juan Rulfo and the 1966 film of the same name, which hinges on the reunion between an estranged father and son. Kuiland-Nazario seeks to explore the current state of Latino masculinity in Santa Monica and on LA’s westside. He is creating a performance and installation, developed in collaboration with the public. The artist will facilitate workshops and interviews with local male-identified community members who will be invited to examine their relationship with their fathers through the lens of Rulfo’s book.

At Brentwood Art Center, Kuiland-Nazario will lead a collage workshop in conjunction with MACHO STEREO. Participants of all genders are welcome to attend any or all of the Father Figure workshops to create autobiographical collages about themselves and their Father or Father Figure.

If you can, please bring pictures, documents, photographs, deeds, certificates, awards, diplomas, ephemera significant to the history of your father, especially if they feature you as well! These images will be carefully duplicated on a color copier to form the basis of your Father Figure collage. All items will be handled with care and returned at the end of the workshop.

Workshops will open with a participatory discussion about our Father Figures led by Marcus Kuiland-Nazario in consultation with MACHO STEREO collaborator and therapist Mario Prietto. Workshops are for adults 18+ of all genders. Materials will be supplied.
