CALLING ALL ARTISTS! El Museo del Barrio’s Curatorial team is inviting artists of Puerto Rican, Latinx, Latin American, or Caribbean descent to register for a twenty-minute portfolio review. OVER THE TABLE, a part of the Office Hours project, offers art practitioners in different stages of their development the opportunity to engage in one-on-one discussions about their work or an upcoming project with one curator. These informal exchanges seek to turn the traditional artist-curator portfolio review into an act of camaraderie between individuals working in the same field.
This portfolio review features the outstanding Independent Curator and Director of The Loisada Center, NYC, Libertad Guerra.
– Open to artists of Puerto Rican, Latinx, Latin American, or Caribbean descent living in the greater NYC metropolitan area.
– Bring images of your work (in whatever format you choose) and the equipment that you will need to present it properly. Free Wi-Fi is available in El Museo’s Café. Please do not bring any actual works of art to El Museo; this is against the Museum’s insurance policy.
– You must be at El Café five minutes before the time allocated for your meeting and expect to be at El Museo for up to an hour. Late arrivals may not be seen

ABOUT OFFICE HOURS
OH is comprised of a series of actions spread throughout El Museo del Barrio’s facilities for which multi-disciplinary artist Nicolas Dumit Estévez invites the various departments of El Museo to operate at a horizontal level with its own exhibition space. OH conceives El Museo and the museum as a holistic work of art; that is, a living artwork existing beyond the boundaries of the exhibition space and co-mingling with life.
