X as Intersection: Latinx Artists in Conversation

A series featuring the cohort of the Latinx Artist Fellowship

X as Intersection:

Material Interventions

April 3, 2024

1pm PST/3pm CST/4pm EST

Online, via Zoom

This panel brings together the artists Joiri Minaya, Maria Cristina (Tina) Tavera, Sofía Gallisá Muriente, and Verónica Gaona, who actively utilize the materiality of their work as a means to challenge cultural stereotypes and interrogate constructs of race, ethnicity, gender, and identity. By centering the discussion around the notion of material as a signifier, this panel shifts the conversation about Latinx art from emphasis on notions of identity and into the realm of the strategies artists use to convey their message.

This conversation is moderated by Mari Carmen Ramírez, Wortham Curator of Latin American Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and Director, of the International Center for the Arts of the Americas and Marina Reyes Franco, Curator, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Puerto Rico.

Simultaneous interpretation in Spanish provided by Babilla Collective.
