Art Talk

ARTIST TALK(in conjunction with the exhibition "Contrapunto")

Saturday May 19, 3-5 PM
Please join us for an informal conversation with four of the artists as they discuss their work, the creative process and share some perspectives on issues in Latin American Art
"Artists from Latin America have consistently and imaginatively forged their own centers ably moving between Europe, the United States, the Caribbean, Central and South America and often instigating, igniting, and cross fertilizing some of the twentieth century’s most far reaching and significant artistic movements and practices, from cubism and surrealism to constructivism and abstraction".
