People of all ages are invited to join us for this guided conversation, presented in English and Spanish, and artmaking workshop, organized in conjunction with the ongoing exhibition
Curits Talwst Santiago: Can’t I Alter.
Led by teaching artist, Ada Pilar Cruz, this workshop will explore Curtis Talwst Santiago’s search to locate a diasporic ancestry and the struggle to access lost and tangled histories.
Se invita a personas de todas las edades que se unan a nosotros en nuestras galerías para apreciar la exhibición Curtis Talwst Santiago: Can’t I Alter. Nacido en Cánada de padres de Trinidad, Santiago crea una instalación de paredes y pasillos inspirada por " los capriccios" – pinturas de paisajes reales y fantásticos del siglo XVII. Guiados por la educadora y artista Ada Pilar Cruz, los participantes explorarán temas de ascendencia y conocimiento generacional a través del recuerdo imaginativo al hacer dibujos.
