Ideas Of Maps, Power Shape ASU Resident Artist's Work
Carolina Aranibar-Fernandez is an artist who believes in community. She was born in Bolivia and now is the resident artist for the Binational Arts Residency at Arizona State University.
Her work centers around the idea of maps and power. She often actually traces the flows of commodities — metals, crops, oil, coca leaves and more.
On Thursday night, at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Arts, she’s giving a talk titled “Cartographies of Power.”
The Show spoke with her more about it recently — and how the so-called “Water Wars” in her home country helped shape her work.
