Extension or Communication is multi-disciplinary collaborative project guided by artist/ organizers Grimaldi Baez, Ricky Yanas, and Sheldon Abba. Working within pragmatic and critical pedagogical traditions the group seeks to engage artists and communities through inquiry and exchange producing artworks, research, new spaces, and other satellite efforts. Operating as an open form, E or C is ever changing, privileging process over product, investigation over data. With a growing list of contributors, the project focuses on the critical intersection of literacy, technology, aesthetics and civics bringing to light emancipatory forms being developed by engaged citizens.
