POWarts is pleased to support Women in Print: Latin America, the second in a series of panels presented by Guttenberg Arts that examines the impact of women in printmaking. This year's panel focuses on printmaking in Latin America, exploring how issues of identity construction, otherness, labor, domesticity, and gender are integrated into a movement towards highly experimental projects and rebellion against traditional notions of craft driven by women in the field.
This year's panelists are:
Rocio Aranda-Alvarado, Curator at El Museo del Barrio
Dr Iria Candela, the Estrellita B. Brodsky Curator of Latin American Art in the Modern and Contemporary Art Department at The Metropolitan Museum of Art
Christina De León, Associate Curator in Visual Arts at the Americas Society
Joiri Minaya, Artist in Residence at Guttenberg Arts, Winter 2016 and recent winner of a Joan Mitchell Award for Emerging Artists
Juana Valdes, Artist in Residence at Guttenberg Arts, Summer 2015
A free accompanying printed brochure will be available for all attending, courtesy of Remco Press. The public is welcome to ask questions and connect directly with the panelists before and after the event. There will be a wine reception courtesy of the Chelsea Wine Vault.
