¡SOLAS Presents! FRG Recipients Christos Galanis and Kathryn Peters Wednesday, August 28th, 2pm @ UNM Latin American & Iberian Institute
Field Research Grant Recipients Christos Galanis and Kathryn Peters will kick off this years ¡SOLAS Presents! lecture series by presenting their research at the LAII on Wednesday, August 28th at 2pm.
Christos Galanis has just completed his M.F.A. in the University of New Mexico’s Studio Art Department with a specialization in Art & Ecology. As a recipient of the Tinker / Latin American and Iberian Institute Field Research Grant, he spent May and June 2013 in Spain, conducting a research/art project that was primarily realized through a 150-mile memorial walk from the French border to Barcelona. His work focuses on the cultivation and consideration of walking as a vehicle for research, representing an embodied, non-rational form of knowledge production that spans the evolutionary trajectory of our species.
