A Conversation on International Trade

with Kate Rich and James Cooper

Tuesday, February 13, 2007, 7-10pm

Lui Velazquez is pleased to present a conversation on international trade with Artist-in-Residence Kate Rich and Director of the Fair Trade Academy, Jamie Cooper.

Kate Rich
In 2003 Kate Rich launched the Feral Trade project, trading goods over social networks. Feral Trade forges new 'wild' trade routes across hybrid territories of business, art, and social interaction.

Kate Rich is an Australian-born artist & trader currently based in Bristol UK. She is known for her work with the Bureau of Inverse Technology (BIT), producing an array of critical information products, including the Bit Plane, a miniature spy plane navigated over the Silicon Valley California; the Suicide Box vertical motion detection device installed in range of the Golden Gate Bridge; Goose Radio, a goose-operated pirate radio station in Flevoland (NL); and the Antiterror Line, a telephone database collecting live phone-in news of civil liberties attacks in the wake of September 11.

Directions:
We suggest you park and walk across the border. It is much quicker than driving, and there is very little parking near the show.
 
Via Walking:
Exit at the last US exit to park on the US side of the border. At the stop light, go straight or right for parking (the closest to the border is straight). After crossing through the first set of gates you will come to a fork in the walkway (money exchange on your left). Veer right at the fork, continue through the next set of gates and make a right (do not cross the street.) Estación Tijuana is about 200 meters to your right, look up and you will see an open balcony. The door will be open.
