Virtual Event + Free
Mexic-Arte Museum (Austin, TX) & The National Museum of Mexican Art (Chicago, IL)
As another tumultuous year in a divided country comes to a close, it is often artists that offer the most perceptive understanding of the present moment. This panel brings Maria Gaspar, mulowayi iyaye nonó (Las Nietas de Nonó), Consuelo Jimenez Underwood, and Vincent Valdez to discuss what they see from within their communities as they generate work that confronts these circumstances. All utilizing different media, these artists create artwork that spans the country while referencing urgent situations encountered in the world around them.

Moderated by Sylvia Orozco, Co-founder + Executive Director, Mexic-Arte Museum and Cesáreo Moreno, Visual Arts Director and Chief Curator, National Museum of Mexican Art.

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. Administered by the US Latinx Art Forum (USLAF) in collaboration with the New York Foundation for the Arts and supported by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Ford Foundation.
