Latin American Speakers Series: Tatiana Flores
Thursday, March 30th via Zoom
7PM ET Register here
In 2017, Tatiana Flores curated a major survey exhibition of contemporary Caribbean art for the Getty Foundation’s PST: LA/LA, a funding initiative to support exhibitions of Latino and Latin American art in Southern California museums and art institutions. Presented at the Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA), Relational Undercurrents: Contemporary Art of the Caribbean Archipelago included over eighty artists from the Caribbean islands and their diasporas and employed an archipelagic approach, inspired by the writings of Édouard Glissant and other Caribbean thinkers. It sought to expand both the continental bias and the conceptual borders of “Latin” America by featuring artists from the non-Hispanophone Caribbean. In this talk, Flores will discuss the exhibition through the lens of decolonial thought, curatorial activism, and antiracist advocacy.
