ABERDEEN, S.D. – This spring, Northern State
will host an internationally recognized art duo known for turning discarded clothing and other recycled relics into meaningful masterpieces.
Guerra de la Paz will be on campus March 31-April 10. During their visit, artists Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz will work with Northern students – and anyone else interested – to make a collaborative installation based on the theme of “water.”
The Cuban-born artists, now of Miami, have been working together since 1996. The artists explain on their website that their work is based on a blend of traditional disciplines and experimentation with dimension and the use of unconventional materials. Their work has been displayed throughout the U.S. and Europe. More information and images of their work can be found at www.guerradelapaz.com
