Visiting Artist: Alejandro Meitin (Ala Plástica)

We were fortunate to have Alejandro Meitin in our meeting last month. He is an artist, lawyer, environmental activist, and co-founder of the art collective Ala Plástica. He gave us a talk about Ala Plástica’s creative process of by using their past projects as example.

Personally, it was an eye-opening experience to learn that “Art” takes in so many forms and shapes, not only physical objects but it can be an approach to a variety of artistic initiatives that affect communities and the environment, while promoting the potential of art to transform.

Alejandro Meitin is an artist, lawyer, environmental activist, and co-founder of the art collective Ala Plástica, which is based in La Plata, Argentina. Since 1994, he has been a member of Littoral Art, an independent network of artists, critics, curators, and scholars interested in new ways of thinking about contemporary artistic practice and critical theory. Meitin has been involved in researching and developing collaborative artistic practices and has a number of exhibitions, residencies, and publications to his credit. He has also taught courses and given lectures in Latin America, North America, and Europe.
