Elvira SANTAMARÍA talk
Tuesday October 2 7 pm
Presented by LACAP (Latin American-Canadian Art Projects) in partnership with 7a*11d.
A talk by festival artist Elvira SANTAMARÍA
The Latin American Speakers Series seeks to articulate and discuss issues of identity and intercultural dynamics in contemporary Latin American art that have evolved in the globalized art scene. Themes and questions of representation, international artistic-cultural interaction, power and marginality have and continue to be at the forefront of each lecture.
The Latin American Speakers Series not only contextualizes Latin American art within Canada, but has also become an opportunity to present meaningful cultural exchange at a broader scale. Internationally renowned guest speakers are paired with local artists, curators and designers as moderators who take an active role in generating critical discussion. Through lectures, audio-visual presentations, discussions, studio visits and interviews the series provides the opportunity to engage with contemporary Latin American Art. The series is curated by Tamara Toledo.
