Throughout the year, Estévez and El Museo del Barrio’s Curatorial team invite artists of Puerto Rican, Latin@, Latin American, or Caribbean descent to register for a twenty-minute portfolio review. “Over the Table” offers art practitioners in different stages of their development the opportunity to engage in one-on-one discussion about their work or an upcoming project. These informal exchanges turn the traditional artist-curator portfolio review into an act of camaraderie between individuals working in the same field. The reviews culminate in a picnic in El Museo’s courtyard, where everyone involved comes together for food and conversation.
All artists who took part in the Over the Table portfolio reviews conducted by Rocío Aranda Alvarado and Estevéz are asked to come together for a picnic and conversation in El Museo’s courtyard.
Artists, curators, staff, and friends came together for the closing celebration of Office Hours (OH). Music by DJ R!C.
