Meant to activate the poetic, political and performative registers of the monochrome, "Never Underestimate a Monochrome" (2012)
is a conceptual project conceived and organized by Mariángeles Soto-Díaz in a collaborative partnership with the

Bruno Dubner (Argentina), Maria Jose Duran (Chile/USA), Anoka Faruqee (USA), Stacy Fisher (USA), Ken Friedman (Australia),

In conversation with artist Brent Hallard on Visual Discrepancies

Brent: Out of location, a thing found – wonders in ways that form a new thing, in a different location – this is generally how I sense your various projects working.

Patricia: It is my experience of a location or an object in a place that is important to me. I think that I’ve been concerned with taking an experience – a place in time, perception – a feeling or idea and translating or transforming that into a physical object.
