Online Film Premiere: Alejandro Almanza Pereda, De esos polvos estos barros
Due Feb 26 2021

De esos polvos estos barros is a short film by Guadalajara-based artist Alejandro Almanza Pereda that examines the artisanal manufacturing of fired clay bricks in western Mexico. Through an episodic narrative, the film observes an ancient construction process still practiced today and a ubiquitous material singularly significant to built environments worldwide. Using sounds, textures, and multi-layered images, Almanza Pereda creates a sensorial film that chronicles the breadth of brick production.

The film will premiere on Black Cube’s YouTube channel followed by a pre-recorded interview with the artist and José Esparza Chong Cuy, the Executive Director and Chief Curator of the Storefront of Art and Architecture.

*A direct link to the YouTube premiere will be updated on the AddEvent calendar.
