Local communities in a global context
Conceived as an archive, the book brings together the experiences of Frequencies, a global participatory project initiated by multimedia artist Oscar Murillo in 2013. Part of the artist’s multimedia practice, Frequencies addresses the notion of community through the lens of its making. For over a decade, it has involved members of Murillo’s family, studio team and collaborators, visiting schools around the globe, fixing raw canvas onto classroom desks, and inviting the students to freely mark, write and draw on them for a period of approximately six months. Murillo has collected an archive of canvases, which he presented in various interactive exhibitions.

This elegant volume features a lay-flat binding, a dust jacket and richly produced slipcase.

OSCAR MURILLO (*1986, La Paila, Colombia) has developed a multi-faceted and ambitious practice that spans painting, collaborative projects, video, sound and installation. He received his MFA from the Royal College of Art in 2012 and was one of four artists to collectively win the prestigious Turner Prize in 2019.
