Please join Extraction exhibition artist, Paccarik Orue as he shares his work from his long term project, El Muqui. Paccarik will explain why he started documenting Cerro de Pasco and why it is important for people to know what’s going on there. He will talk about the place, its residents, and why having a record of all this matters. He will also delve into his artist practice which includes putting together different angles of a narrative using zines, books, historical images, ephemera and photographic installation.

Paccarik Orue (b. 1976, Lima, Peru) resides in Santa Clara, California. He earned a BFA from the Academy of Art University in 2011 and has been documenting struggling cities and their inhabitants both in the Bay Area and in his native Peru. Orue has had solo shows at Blue Sky Gallery, SFO Museum and Book & Job Gallery. His work has been selected to participate in numerous exhibitions including Jenkins Johnson Gallery, SF Camerawork, Center for Photographic Art and Rayko. His images have been featured in The New York Times, PDN, Juxtapoz, KQED/PBS, Conscientious and Lenscratch, among others. He was selected by PDN as one of the 30 Emerging Photographers to Watch in 2016 and has been awarded En Foco’s New Works Photography Fellowship Award (2013-2014.) Orue is the recipient of Duke University’s 2016 Archive of Documentary Arts Collection Award for Documentarians of Color. His first book, There Is Nothing Beautiful Around Here, was published by Owl & Tiger in 2012.
