Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA)

270 is a series of short films commissioned by the Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA) to preserve and amplify the legacies of artists from Latin America. Each installment of 270 centers a single living artist in a short film lasting four minutes and thirty seconds—a duration that lends the series its title. Mónica Mayer: Doña Lilia is the third installment in the 270 series.

Installments of 270 are presented in an edition of custom boxes with artifacts and documentation selected by the film’s subject. 270.03 boxes contain letterpress-printed cards and a hand-bound pamphlet.
