WATCH: Footage from Helena Producciones’ Festival de Calí
Ana Maria Millan, Helena Producciones Collective
Visual artist Ana Maria Millan works both individually and with collective platforms like the award-winning Helena Producciones.
WHY WE LOVE ANA MARIA AND HELENA PRODUCCIONES:
- Since 1997, Helena Producciones has organized the Festival de Performance de Cali, a platform for international and local performance artists that does not shy away from controversial issues and institutional critique
- During an early installment of the Festival, French artist Pierre Pinoncelli amputated his finger in protest against Ingrid Betancourt’s kidnapping in 2002
- Like Creative Time, Helena Producciones doesn’t have a space; rather, they are committed to activating public places that have cultural, political, and historical significance
