Latinx Inclusivity: A Conversation between Arlene Dávila and Ed Morales, moderated by Bill Johnson González
Opening Thursday, February 4th, at 6PM
This conversation between scholars Arlene Dávila and Ed Morales explores questions about Latinx inclusivity and representation. Dávila recently published Latinx Art: Artists, Markets, and Politics (Duke, 2020) in which she draws on numerous interviews with artists, dealers, and curators to explore the problem of visualizing Latinx art and artists. Morales’s Latinx: The New Force in Politics and Culture (Verso, 2018) considers the ways in which Latinx identity disrupts binary thinking about race in the United States. Together, Dávila and Morales ask, “Where do we go from here with Latinidad?” in the midst of U.S. reckoning with race. The conversation will be moderated by DePaul’s Associate Professor in the English Department Bill Johnson González.
Presented by DePaul Art Museum in partnership with the Departments of Latin American & Latino Studies, History of Art and Architecture, and the Center for Latino Research. All of DPAM’s winter 2021 programs are generously supported by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts
