In advance of her performance later this night at Walters Downtown, artist, archivist, activist, and music-maker Elysia Crampton rolls out a lecture on new thinking. To wit, the lecture concerns Aymara Cosmo-Praxis (an alternate way of thinking about thinking and thinking about one's and others' participation in the cosmic reel, based on the indigenous traditions of the Aymara people of the Andes). This in contrast to the temporal monism of the Judeo-Hellenic worldview to which we frequently default, and which gives short shrift to a great amount of history and cultural information. Lest this sound dry for your weary eyes (and we don't suppose it will be in the least----there's often a real tingle to cognitive stretching), this event will incorporate an exhibition of works by artists, designers and nu-human groups Ángel Lartigue, Maureen Penders, S Rodriguez El x Shopnonhuman, and syncletica.
