Opening Thursday, February 25th, at 6PM
A specialist in Chicanx and Latinx art, C. Ondine Chavoya presents on queer networks in Latinx art and explores the works of LGBTQI artists in DPAM’s exhibition LatinXAmerican. Chavoya co-curated a number of historical exhibitions including Axis Mundo: Queer Networks in Chicano L.A. (2017) which mapped the intersections and collaborations among a network of queer Chicano artists and their artistic collaborators from the late 1960s to the early 1990s. This period was bookended by the Chicano Moratorium, gay liberation, and feminist movements on one end, and the AIDS crisis on the other. C. Ondine Chavoya is a Professor of Art History and Latina/o Studies at Williams College, where he teaches courses in contemporary art and visual culture.
This program is presented by DePaul Art Museum in partnership with the Center for Latino Research, the Department of Latin American and Latino Studies, the Latinx Cultural Center, and the Department of LGBTQ Studies. All of DePaul Art Museum’s winter 2021 programs are generously supported by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
