Spectacle is pleased to invite Uruguayan-born, NYC-based filmmaker and musician Juan Wauters to the space for a one-night-only screening of recent short-form video works. ROMANE, JUIN 2016 builds a video portrait of the titular Romane, a 19-year-old postal service worker, living in a small village in France as she goes through her daily chores. BOLERO URUGUAY, DIC 2017 is a montage of images collected in Wauters’ homeland set to the tune of Maurice Ravel’s classic orchestral piece “Bolero”. Both videos portray life at its own pace; driven by curiosity, Wauters’ camera stares at people living their lives.
Having spent years in Jackson Heights, quotidian observation of people in their day-to-day environments has become central to Wauters’ life and artistic practice. This will be the first public screening of Wauters’ short films (which will include a few extra surprises) in New York, and Wauters will be in attendance for a discussion following the films.
Programmed in collaboration with Steve Holmgren and David Powell Steine. Special thanks to Captured Tracks.
SADIE BENNING is an American artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Benning’s work has been exhibited internationally since 1990.

JUAN WAUTERS has covered a lot of ground in the past few years, both artistically and geographically. The New York-based, Latin-American artist has been traveling Latin America extensively, taking time to pause and rethink his life, his art and his career after releasing two critically acclaimed albums on Captured Tracks: 2014’s N.A.P.: North American Poetry and 2015’s Who Me? Wauters originally planned to record his next album while traveling, seeking a break from his life in New York City, the city he has called home since moving from Montevideo in 2002. He settled in Mexico City in 2017 to focus on writing. However, shortly after, he was offered a role in an independent film being shot in Argentina. Never one to turn down a creative opportunity, Wauters packed up his 100 pound mobile recording studio into two suitcases and took off to Buenos Aires. When filming was complete, Wauters wound up writing and recording all over Latin America — from Argentina, Uruguay, Peru, and Chile to Mexico and Puerto Rico — seeking collaboration at every stop with local musicians who embody the traditions and energies specific to each region.
Puerto Rico was one of his first destinations. At a restaurant on the way to Charco Azul in Guavate – a natural swimming hole – Wauters heard a duo playing boleros, music he has been familiar with since his early childhood, but had never experienced in its original context. Those boleros would inspire the repeating melody that makes up the infectious love song, “Guapa.” Later, Mexico City was to become the home of “A Volar,” a beautiful, buoyant track about dreaming wildly that features multiple musicians that Wauters met in Garibaldi, a popular square in Mexico City where musicians for hire gather. Later, he would trek to Buenos Aires, Santiago and Montevideo, creating music and incorporating local traditions into his idiosyncratic, captivating yarns.
Until this point in his career, most of his songs had been sung in English, but revisiting his Latin roots inspired him to record songs in his native tongue. Thus, Wauters gives us the wonderful La Onda de Juan Pablo, the world of Juan Pablo Wauters. Wauters now calls Far Rockaway home, when he is not on the road making music or movies.
