ART TALK | DIASPORAS – Latin American Artists in Canada 

November 24, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us on November 24th for another exciting visual arts talk. To what degree are the practices of contemporary artists born in Latin American soil altered once they decide to live overseas? For the final talk of the year, Jairo Salazar will explore selected works by Vancouver-based artists Guadalupe Martinez (Argentina), Carlos Colin (Mexico), and Osvaldo Ramirez (El Salvador). These three artists share, in addition to their Latin American origins, a persistent concern to materialize ideas forged, expanded, and influenced by their experiences as artists who have embraced throughout their practices the diverse challenges and opportunities posed as members of the Latin American diaspora in Canada.

WHEN: Wednesday, November 24th, 2021 7pm to 8:30pm PST
WHERE: Online on Zoom.
FREE event. Get your ticket at Eventbrite. Details, including the Zoom link, will follow.
