Crossroads

spanish version

The Crossroads project started in 2014 when eL Paper Magazine organized two festivals of music and poetry —one in New York and one in Santiago, Chile— that were recorded live for a Long Play. While we gathered the necessary funds for the vinyl, we’ve  decided to press CDs of the New York and Chilean experiences in the meantime, and we have invited printmakers from Caracas, New York and Santiago to print original covers for the LP. Currently, we have collected more than 80 pieces that we have been exhibited as a work in progress, and we expect to have 20 more covers by 2018. The project compiles the work of about 170 artists —including printmakers, musicians and writers from different countries and in different stages of their careers—, in the idea of opening up dialogue on contemporary printmaking. In the process, the project aims to establish cultural exchange between artists from different disciplines, cultures and backgrounds, as well as the community at large. Crossroads has an educational component, since the exhibition shows a variety of techniques and possibilities for approaching the same object or theme. This is also democratic, since experienced artists and students can show their work side-by-side and be part of the same collection. Our goal is to print a catalogue of all the original covers and press the vinyl of the live music and poetry, to be released with a big exhibition in Santiago and New York.
