Zona de despeje 8

The eighth iteration of Zona de despeje, organized by Tráfico Visual, focuses on the work of artist and photographer Freisy González. This event will take place on Thursday, February 29, 2024 at 4:00 p.m. at Los Galpones Art Center (G17) and will offer the opportunity to explore González’s latest works, which delve into themes of identity, migration, personal reflections on memory, and her interaction with domestic and public environments.

Freisy González Portales is an anthropologist, photographer, and musician from Caracas, Venezuela. She has participated with her photographic projects in discussions and exhibitions (both group and individual) in Venezuela, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Ecuador, and the United States. She graduated from the Master of Contemporary Latin American Photography Maldefoco at the Centro de la Imagen de Lima (2017), and from the Semillero Migrante. Programa de Narrativas Visuales about migration (2022). She has also participated in programs in Venezuela, Peru, Chile, among others.

Zona de despeje was originally conceived as a series of talks and meetings organized by Tráfico Visual with the support of allied institutions, aiming to discuss and highlight initiatives, movements, and new trends that, although sometimes peripheral, represent axes that resonate within the languages of contemporary culture in Venezuela. Zona de despeje is possible, in part, thanks to the initial support of the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros
