Led by Professor Pato Hebert, the Critical Collaboration project gathered in Buenos Aires in early November. Hebert and APP alumni Horacio Pérez ('12), Leticia Gutierrez ('14) and Mariana Lorenzi de Azevedo ('11) presented at NYU Buenos Aires as part of the public conversation, La Boca Imaginada: La Boca On Everyone's Lips. Pérez also led a community theater workshop at Teatro Brown, and Gutierrez conceptualized and held a dinner with artists at La Verdi. Throughout their time in Buenos Aires, the group engaged with NYUBA Professor Florencia Malbran, who curated the exhibition, Read My Lips at Usina del Arte. The exhibition featured the photographs of Critical Collaboration Fellow Gian Paolo Minelli. Minelli led the group on visits to community-based arts and mobilization projects in three different neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. APP alumna Joy Zimmerman ('16) also led the group on a walking tour of Buenos Aires architecture.
