Dr. Marcela Guerrero Presents: "Latinx Art: Representation, Exhibitions, and Institutions"

Despite making up almost 20% of the US population, Latinx as an identity and as a lens through which to look at art remains severely understudied. In this presentation, Dr. Marcela Guerrero, Jennifer Rubio Associate Curator at the Whitney Museum, will introduce the public to the ways Latinx art has been interpreted and represented in the different institutions where she has served. The lecture will conclude with an overview of Guerrero's upcoming exhibition at the Whitney Museum titled no existe un mundo poshuracán: Puerto Rican Art in the Wake of Hurricane Maria.
