<p><span style="font-family:Garamond" lang="EN-US">Hello Empyre,</span></p>

<p><span style="font-family:Garamond" lang="EN-US"> </span></p>

<p><span style="font-family:Garamond" lang="EN-US">We are alonso+craciun collective, a duo project
from Uruguay.</span></p>

<p><span style="font-family:Garamond" lang="EN-US">We work in projects linking art, architecture,
thoughts and social practices. Since 2004 we have been working in several
artistic projects, in various formats such as installation, presentation,
photography, video, publications, objects, actions and workshops. We have tried
to establish relations with cultural public institutions, educational
institutions, with citizens who make actions on common areas of the city, with
artists whose critical thinking dialogues from conflict and others absolutely
indifferent to the daily rhythms. These relationships, approaches and
discussions have generated and contributed to generate different events in the
public sphere and an artistic production that seeks to contextualize and belong
to the complex world in which we live.</span></p>

<p><span style="font-family:Garamond" lang="EN-US"> </span></p>

<p><span style="font-family:Garamond" lang="EN-US">In our last project &quot;Modos de Hacer
Colectivo&quot; (Ways of Doing Collectively) which is actually happening now in
cities of Uruguay (Paysandú, Rocha, Tacuarembó). We work around the notion of
collective art and how this practices can dialogue with critical practices,
militant practices, activism, and reflexing about the word we are living. We
are showing some works from us and some others from collectives and artist we
have invited. We are also developing workshops with High Schools studemts
across the city mapping different situations.</span></p>
