Join Biennial of the Americas 2019 Festival artists Leonardo Vilar and Catalina Pulido, co-founders and directors of Sonic Design Studio as they share their vision and story behind Jaguara. Jaguara is the artistic centerpiece of the 2019 festival and is the showcase stage of Cósmico Americas on September 28.
Jaguara is a collaborative project by an interdisciplinary collective of artists, designers, scientists, musicians, ancestral knowers, ecologists, communicators, teachers, technicians, and artisans from different areas of the American continent led by the Colombian design duo Leonardo Vilar and Catalina Pulido of Sonic Design Studio. Debuting at Burning Man in 2019, Jaguara is an art-cart and portable musician stage portraying a Jaguar emerging from the Amazon River. Through this artful celebration of the Jaguar, they strive to raise awareness about the vulnerability of the main refuge of the Jaguar: the Amazon rainforest.
