Online, via Zoom

El arte existe en relación a momentos sociales particulares. Tanto a través de la representación de una realidad contemporánea como en su potencia para desafiar narrativas culturales, el arte inspira respuestas emocionales y pensamientos críticos en una manera distinta a los métodos políticos tradicionales. A través de varias obras en la colección del Whitney, exploraremos los diferentes roles que ha jugado el arte en los Estados Unidos durante el siglo XX y el siglo XXI , abordando temas como la inmigración, la justicia económica, el sexismo y el racismo.

Camilo Godoy es un artista y educador radicado en Nueva York. Es candidato de maestría en arte en Columbia University y enseña en Recess y el Whitney Museum.
