In this conversation with Gibran Villalobos and Wil Ruggiero, the curators will speak to the issues regarding Hispanic Heritage and how the policy challenges many of the aspects within the Latinx community. At a time when placemaking becomes a du jour resolve for economic development, they explore how the work by Andrea Perales and Jose Resendiz creates a sense of placekeeping. Borrowing from the ideas by Roberto Bedoya and Tomas Ybarra-Frausto, they turn to “rasquachismo” as a term to unpack how heritage and and pride provoke oscillating points of vantage.

En esta conversación con Gibran Villalobos y Wil Ruggiero, los curadores presentan una plática donde sobre temas relacionados a lo conocido como “Hispanic Heritage” o mal-traducido, Patrimonio Hispano, y como la póliza provoca aspectos dentro la comunidad Latino/a. En estos tiempos donde la idea de “placemaking” está de moda para resolver el desarrollo económico, ellos explorarán como las obras de Andrea Perales y José Reséndiz crean la sensación de “placekeeping.” Prestando de las ideas por Roberto Bedoya y Tomás Ybarra-Frausto, ellos platicaron sobre el “rasquachismo” como un término para desempacar come el “patrimonio” y el “orgullo” provocan puntos de ventaja oscilantes.
