    About The Work

    The series Noticias de America is the result of a year's elaboration of a living body of work concerned with the web of human affairs and the social and personal ties that exist from household to household, village to village, and city to city on both sides of the Rio Grande. Through documented performances, social sculptures, drawings, and biographical portraits in video and film, Nazareth reveals an unseen vision of the Americas—uncovering a plurality of overlapping Americas and a profusion of ways of being. In a practice without preconceived strategies or formulas, Nazareth relies on the immediacy of life itself to create an impression of the overall shape of experience and being.

    Throughout the work, simple but poignant gestures are used to evoke personal and historical memory and to observe social, political, and economic inequalities present throughout the Americas. In Noticias de America, the artist blends notions of social justice and peaceful resistance with a dose of the absurd—flowing between solemn contemplation and the lighthearted joy of being alive.
