SITAC XIII: "No One Is Innocent," Phase 3
September 30–October 1, 2016, 10:30am
SIT_AC is a yearly conference hosted and organized by the Mexican non-profit Patronato de Arte Contemporáneo (PAC).
SIT_AC has been restructured in its 13th edition in order to provoke a mid- and-long-term collective discussion aimed to build bridges between diverging initiatives and to encourage increasingly incisive projects that concur in a critical analysis of the current socio-political process.
Under the title "No One Is Innocent," SIT_AC XIII is addressing a specific art community where we are all active participants—and share the responsibility of its continuing composition.
The framework for SIT_AC is to debate certain issues of the global art scene, which at present have become particularly relevant in terms of the local context. The three main themes are: A Culture of Common Good?; The Production of Art Value; The Politics Behind State Cultural Management.
SIT_AC XIII is conceived as a multiple-phase format. The first set of lectures took place in Mexico City during April 2016. These were followed by NODOS, consisting of various self-organized activities (seminars, public debates, etc.) carried out from May to September, which stemmed from initiatives from both players and institutions throughout the national territory. The records of these actions have been included on SITAC's web site (sitac.org). On September 24 an encounter to exchange the accumulated experiences will take place at Museo Jumex, to amplify local discussions towards a wider context.
The final phase of SIT_AC XIII (September 30–October 1) will take place in Puebla, in collaboration with Museo Amparo and Universidad de las Américas Puebla (UDLAP).
