Diálogo: A conversation about Latin American art in North America | FREE event
October 16, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
For this conversation, Latin Expressions brings together artists and curators from two distinct and exciting exhibitions featuring the work of Latin American artists in North America:
Xicanx: Dreamers + Changemakers / Soñadores + creadores del cambio (at the UBC Museum of Anthropology) brings forward the work of 33 self-identified Xicanx artists (Mexican-Americans in the US).
Volver (to return, to become) on view at CityScape Community ArtsSpace through November 12th, shares immigration-related viewpoints of Latin American artists in Vancouver.
This event will be a conversation between visiting Xicanx artists Linda Vallejo, Debora Kuetzpal Vasquez, Vancouver-based curator Miret Rodriguez, and artist from the Volver exhibition Ximena Velázquez. The speakers will exchange viewpoints and opinions on their personal experiences as Latin Americans and art professionals in North America to explore the differences and perhaps common points between being a Latin American artist in Vancouver and a Mexican-American artist in the US.
Date: Sunday, October 16
Time: 12:00 -2:00 pm
