Artist:

tk tunchez, in collaboration with EastLink presents “La OFRENDA / The offering” - an homage to our collective memory, what made us, what makes us and where we’re going. This is a site-specific collective interactive installation, a gathering of memory and story, of wisdom, of loss and of hope. In the fast changing face of Austin and the US, specifically set on the Eastside of Austin, Texas- this is a story of survival and of loss, of sadness and of hope, of beauty and of ugliness. We set the foundation for this Physical OFRENDA, with our own herstories & artistic contributions, and invite the general public to contribute to this ongoing and complex narrative. Bring your stories, your art, images and more to create this onsite growing document.
