Another challenge is overcome. Despite the pandemic, the students of last semester’s Art Techniques and Materials course taught by Professor Marilyn Torrech carried out an appropriation exercise that is worth contemplating.

“Aware of the difficult access to materials and exploring alternatives to create work, I presented this exercise to students, which takes a given situation out of its context and places it in a new reality, as a communication strategy that challenges traditional perception. As reference, I used works by international and local artists who have worked on appropriation,” explained the Visual Arts program professor.

Below, we share our students’ appropriations:
