At 5pm (EDT) on Wednesday, September 16, the Frost Art Museum invites art lovers to join them for an online conversation with the artists of Otros Lados: Itzel Basualdo, Hugo Crosthwaite, and Judithe Hernández and the exhibition’s curators, Amy Galpin, Chief Curator, and Maryanna G. Ramirez, Manager of Strategic Initiatives.
“Al otro lado” is a phrase used in Mexico referring to shared borders with the United States and the space populated by many Mexican immigrants on the other side of the Mexico/US border. Inspired by award-winning author Reyna Grande’s A Dream Called Home, a required text for FIU’s First-Year Experience Program, Otros Lados weaves narratives of historical memory, personal experience, and social justice. The works of Itzel Basualdo, Hugo Crosthwaite, and Judithe Hernández offer shared vantage points with Grande’s memoir, bringing distinct perspectives to Mexican and Mexican American experiences.
“The art produced by Mexican and Mexican American artists in the US has a long history that continues to reverberate. This echo is a dynamic and necessary narrative that expands traditional interpretations of American art,” explains Galpin.
Attendees are encouraged to ask questions following the conversation.
