About / Sobre el Evento

(English below...) 

Estamos encantadas de poder recibir a la galardonada artista guatemalteca Sandra Monterroso, PhD, quien se unirá a nosotros desde Guatemala para convivir y conversar sobre su obra que se exhibe en los principales museos de todo el mundo, incluido el Museo de Arte de Denver.

Sus instalaciones multidimensionales y video performances se basan en la herencia maya de la artista, basandose en prácticas indígenas en riesgo de extinción en resistencia al colonialismo. Trabajando en una resignificación de lo que es definirse como mujer maya q'eq'chi'/mestiza-indígena y sus consecuencias.

Como comunidad, tendremos la oportunidad de entablar un diálogo con Sandra y explorar las complejidades de su viaje artístico.

Antojitos y bebidas guatemaltecos estarán disponibles para compartir.
