April 14th-15th, JXTA will host a talk and workshop with cultural practitioner William Cordova.

The public talk “U can’t take the fly 2 the swatter: or the synthesis of resilience, determination and honor,” will be a special presentation of art works realized in non-profit art residencies during the past 12 years. The Saturday workshop with JXTA apprentices, “Strategies: generalized approach to problem solving,” will focus on alternative methods of surviving and maintaining a visual art practice outside the mainstream commercial art world while attaining a critical discourse with community and institutions of higher learning.
Cordova’s work addresses the metaphysics of space and time and how objects change and perception changes when we move around in space.
