Healing, Justice, and World-Making: Latinx Artists in Conversation

Wed, Mar 9, 2022
7 pm

Online, via Zoom

This panel brings together artists Vick Quezada, Carolina Caycedo, Miguel Luciano, Guadalupe Maravilla, and Juan Sánchez for a conversation about their shared interests and practices. Each artist’s work explores deeply-rooted beliefs in Indigenous philosophy, environmental justice, and liberation politics to probe forms of world-making that exist outside the framework of Western, neoliberal ideology. These concerns inform the panel’s focus on restorative aesthetics and methods of community building in the praxis of this intergenerational group of artists.

  

Moderated by Marcela Guerrero, Jennifer Rubio Associate Curator, Whitney Museum of American Art, and Cesáreo Moreno, Visual Arts Director and Chief Curator, National Museum of Mexican Art, Chicago. 

This program is part of X as Intersection: Latinx Artists in Conversation, a three-part virtual public program series featuring conversations with fellows from the inaugural cohort of the Latinx Artist Fellowship. It is a collaboration between the National Museum of Mexican Art and the Whitney.

This event is presented in both English and Spanish and simultaneous interpretation is available in both languages. Interpretation by Babilla Collective.


Este panel reúne a los artistas Vick Quezada, Carolina Caycedo, Miguel Luciano, Guadalupe Maravilla y Juan Sánchez para una conversación sobre sus prácticas e intereses compartidos. Los trabajos de los artistas exploran una profunda creencia en la filosofía indígena, justicia ambiental y políticas de liberación a fin de ensayar formas para construir un mundo fuera del marco de occidente y de la ideología neoliberal. Estas preocupaciones determinan el tema del panel que se enfocará en la estética restaurativa y los métodos de construcción comunitarios, en la práctica de este grupo de artistas intergeneracionales.

Moderado por Marcela Guerrero, Jennifer Rubio Associate Curator del Whitney Museum of American Art y Cesáreo Moreno, Director de Artes Visuales y Curador Principal del National Museum of Mexican Art, Chicago.
