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. This season, 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. 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 guest curator Pepe Coronado, who was born and raised in the Dominican Republic and currently resides in New York City. Coronado is a founding member of the print collective Dominican York Proyecto GRAFICA, founder of Coronado Print Studio, was a resident teaching artist at the Hudson River Museum in New York. He has taught printmaking at the Corcoran College of Art; Georgetown University; and at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, where he earned a Master in Fine Arts. Coronado was a master printer at the Hand Print Workshop International in Alexandria, Virginia; and at the Serie Print Project in Austin, Texas.
His works and prints from the Coronado printstudio collection are exhibited nationally and internationally and his works is in many museums and cultural institutions collections.
ABOUT OFFICE HOURS (OH)
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.
