This lecture explores the work of three visual artists of the U.S. Latinx diaspora, Amalia Mesa-Bains (Chicana/U.S), María Magdalena Campos-Pons (Afro-Cuban/US), and Firelei Báez (Dominican Republic/US). It will consider their art practices in installation, photography and painting as modes of embodied interference that unsettle colonialism’s entangled racial logics and conjure new modes of Brown and Black being.
Lecture co-sponsored by Department of Art History and Latino/a Studies
