Art as Monster: A Conversation with Allora & Calzadill
by Elaine A. King


Over the past 15 years, Allora & Calzadilla (the artist team of Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla) have produced an interdisciplinary body of work known for its distinct blend of art, poetry, and socio-political critique. Playful farce and social interaction underlie their installations, videos, performances, works in public space, photographs, and collages. Acutely attuned to world events, they offer viewers unique perspectives on global issues and injustices.
