In moments of hardship and joy alike, acts of memorialization, monumentalization, and remembrance carry particular resonance. This panel invites artists Felipe Baeza, Edra Soto, and Mario Ybarra, Jr. to reflect on the presence of homenaje (homage or tribute) in their work. Acknowledging the significance of forging connections between past, present, and future, the discussion will explore how commemoration can shed light on ancestral places and identities, obscured or suppressed histories, and the affirmation of collective memory and spirituality.
This conversation is moderated by Susanna V. Temkin, Curator, El Museo del Barrio, and Sonja E. Gandert, Associate Director Research Initiatives, US Latinx Art Forum.
This program is part of X as Intersection, a four-part virtual public program series featuring conversations with fellows from the third cohort of the Latinx Artist Fellowship, an initiative of the US Latinx Art Forum.
