“Labertino Projects”: art workshops in El Salvador
“Laberinto Projects” to hold Spring Break workshops…
Laberinto Projects is an arts, education and cultural legacy initiative that fosters contemporary art practices, social inclusion and dialogue in El Salvador, Central America and its U.S. diaspora.
This year we are launching a physical space here in El Salvador that we are structuring as a creative labratory. We are working with a small but significant collection of Central American art, library, archive and property in one of the last indigenous regions of the country. We believe, now more than ever, that supporting culture and fostering research in this region is critical. You can see more about the scope of the project at www.laberintoprojects.com
As part our 2017 Master Artist Workshop series we are announcing two workshops, one that coincides with MICA’s spring break: The Artist and the Archive: Muriel Hasbun (March 11 – 18, 2017) and The Photo Book: Pablo Ortiz Monasterio (March 19 – 26, 2017). Muriel Hasbun is an artist and educator, most recently the chair of photography at the Corcoran College of Art and Design, who has been working with archives as part of her artistic practice for 30 years. Pablo Ortiz Monasterio is considered one of the most influential and active figures in contemporary photography in Mexico and Latin America.

We welcome artists from around the world with a good project that is ready to be taken to the next level. Additionally, a few months of every year are dedicated to self-directed residencies, June and September of this year. These will be multidisciplinary but complementary groupings of artists, scholars, writers, scientists etc.
The workshop is for professionals and students — we’ve received accreditation through Trinity University so that students can receive undergraduate and graduate transfer credit through the approval process of their own institution.
