Unsettled Primaries (2014) is a hybrid, web-based project conceived by Mariángeles Soto-Díaz and made possible through a collaboration with participating Venezuelan artists, the Torrance Museum of Art and El Museo del Barrio. For this collective event realized in summer 2014, artists located in and outside of Venezuela were invited to interpret a series of conceptual instructions that correspond with the primary colors of the country’s flag. Using abstraction to respond obliquely to the flag’s politically charged history, Unsettled Primaries reappropriates primary colors from reductionist readings and signals a multiplicitous, collective reflection on color’s power and the fluidity of meaning.
