Thursday, March 22nd at 6:30p.m. 1:1projects will host a talk by artist Manuela Ribadeneira of Artes No Decorativas S.A.

Artes No Decorativas is a share-holding company that was legally established by Nelson Garcia (Quito, Ecuador) and Manuela Ribadeneira (London, UK) in 1998, 49% of the company is currently owned by the public. Artes No Decorativas S.A. produces art projects and works that employ distribution strategies borrowed from business and marketing. Recent productions include: moving the latitude of the equator; establishing the first artist residency in Ecuador; and the development of an updated version of the traditional art supply shop in which, rather than only buying brushes and canvases, artists can also find funding applications, a book that explains how to get a gallery, and “space markers” that protect or expand one’s personal space at exhibition openings.

Manuela Ribadeneira will represent Ecuador (with Pablo Cardoso and María Verónica León) in the 52nd edition of the Venice Biennial, in the Padiglione Italo-Latino
Americano, Ca’Zenobio.
