HOME—So Different, So Appealing is an exhibition showcasing works by nearly 40 U.S. Latino and Latin American artists from the late 1950s to the present who use the universal concept of “home” as a lens through which to view socioeconomic and political changes in the Americas over the past seven decades.

This free discussion presents insights from artists featured in the exhibition, as well as from the curators. An exhibition viewing and reception precede the conversation.
