Juanito Artist Talk

Guillermina Zabala was born in La Plata, Argentina in 1970. She is a photographer, filmmaker, and media artist who credits her father for instilling in her an early love of film, and the innovative filmmakers of the Nouvelle Vague for setting the aesthetic standard in her own work. She has spent the last five years developing the documentary film, Juanito's Lab, an exploration on the life and art of Juanito Castillo, a 22-year-old musician who many consider a musical genius. Committed to "capturing energetic beauty" in unprecedented ways, she, like the pioneers that forged the French New Wave, is an artist dedicated to the exploration of new forms of expression and style. - Arturo Infante Almeida Curator, UTSA Art Specialist
