The Aguilars

Friday, June 3rd 2016 - All Day

Over the summer of 2016, in the lead-up to the U.S. Presidential Elections, Gaelyn and Gustavo Aguilar, Co-Artistic Directors of Tug Collective, will embark on a two-month expedition over the National Historic Lewis and Clark Trail, making various stops at community venues along this 11-state journey.  All the while, they will make tacos with people, prompt dialogue, and invite innovative forms of engagement around the question: What is it going to take for us to truly live inter-culturally?

The project, called Who Eats at Taco Bell? , will investigate how American attitudes, institutions, and politics are changing dramatically as the U.S. finds itself on the cusp of becoming a nation with no majority demographic group.  Changes like this, however, often expose underlying fears and uncertainties that can lead to tension and conflict, even as they reveal implicit assumptions and biases that have existed in the popular imagination for some time around what it means to be an American.

The Aguilars will hit the road – starting at the Camp Dubois confluence of Wood River and Hartford, Illinois on May 14 and ending in Seaside, Oregon on July 14 – to deepen understanding and action around attitudes and ideas our country has inherited. They are working closely with national and community partners to tailor the experience to local needs, ensuring the creation of spaces that can support the new and stronger relationships across diverse cultural groups, and inviting new and exciting visions for the future during this time of tremendous change.  The Aguilars will arrive in Vermillion on Friday, June 3rd and will be engaging the community in a variety of discussions, interventions, and exhibitions through Wednesday, June 8th.  Find them at the Vermillion Farmer’s Market at the Platz on Saturday, June 4th, at the Vermillion Public Library on Monday, June 6th & 8th from 6-8 pm, Southeast of the Armory on Tuesday, June 7th, at the Vermillion UPNext Coffee Hour (at VPL) on Wednesday, June 8th from 8-9 am, and more!  More information on their Vermillion schedule can be found at http://vermillionpubliclibrary.org/newsblog/.

Gaelyn and Gustavo Aguilar are the Co-Artistic Directors of Tug, a collective focused on interdisciplinary research, new forms of social practice, and participatory, problem-based interventions that tackle the cultural politics of contemporary border regions in North America.  For a preliminary schedule of the Summer 2016 expedition, visit www.tacotalk.org, or go to Tug Collective on Facebook.

The Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library is located at 18 Church Street.
