X as Intersection: Material Constellations

Wed, Oct 12, 2022
7 pm

Online, via Zoom

This panel brings together artists Leslie Martinez, Tanya Aguiñiga, and Amalia Mesa-Bains to explore the material and conceptual intricacies in their work, and the points of contact between them. The conversation considers how each artist crosses disciplinary boundaries to challenge art world categories as well as identity- and gender-based assumptions.

Moderated by Marcela Guerrero, Jennifer Rubio Associate Curator, Whitney Museum of American Art, and Adriana Zavala, Executive Director, US Latinx Art Forum.

This program is part of X as Intersection, a four-part virtual public program series featuring conversations with fellows from the second cohort of the Latinx Artist Fellowship, an initiative of the US Latinx Art Forum.

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

This program will be recorded and made available on the Whitney's YouTube channel.
