Join us Thursday, March 24, 2022, for a special lecture with invited scholar and curator Andrés I. M. Hernández.

Hernandez invites us to “feel” the visual artwork of various artists from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, and Cuba, from its conception to its presentation. The artwork is analyzed from its construction to the relations with spectators and the architecture that surrounds them.

Presented in partnership with Contemporary Art Committee.
