How do we manifest the artist’s repertoire, make visible artistic knowledges, skills, and theory, describe the process and depth of art-making, and transmit these knowledges? We understand the repertoire to be both ephemeral and embodied cultural and social practices of transmission. We situate ourselves at the crossroads of hemispheric regimes as the queer, the troublesome, the heretics––passing through the confines of the normative to break down binary and unitary paradigms. Deeply affected by the processes of colonization, we are interested in what artistic knowledge transmission looks like within a decolonizing framework. Our focus is to sustain, proliferate, and transmit the artist’s repertoire through multiple explorations, divergences, and articulations.
