X as Intersection | Latinx Artists “Diasporic Legacies”
Presented by the MFAH and the US Latinx Art Forum

How do the legacies of Latin American and Caribbean migration to the United States affect Latinx artists and their work? This conversation draws on sources ranging from first-hand experiences to family oral histories of migration and diaspora.

Artists Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, Lucia Hierro, and Rosemary Meza-DesPlas discuss the impact these legacies have had on their practices and cultural production.

Moderating the conversation are Mari Carmen Ramírez, the Wortham Curator of Latin American Art and director of the International Center for the Arts of the Americas at the MFAH; and Rose Salseda, co-founder and director of research initiatives at the US Latinx Art Forum.
