18th Street Arts Center presents a lively dialogue between Fiamma Montezemolo, PhD in Anthropology and MFA in Art, and Sara Solaimani, PhD in Art History, Theory, and Criticism, to deepen into the themes addressed in the artworks from the group exhibition Las Hijas de los Días —7 Female Views from the Margins currently on view at the 18th Street Arts Center’s Airport Gallery. The exhibition features work by Cristina de Middel, Eunice Adorno, Lola del Fresno, Luciana Abait, Doni Silver Simons, Sabine Pearlman, and Pamela Simon-Jensen
Our diasporic socio-historical ties within a postfeminist era; and the migration of bodies, ideologies and disciplines will be some of the topics addressed during this conversation. Throughout the talk, we will interweave the art historical and anthropological knowledge of our guests with works by artists in the show, positioning these works within broader psychogeographical and historical contexts.
18th Street Arts Center believes that open dialogues are key to deepening the understanding of relevant issues that affect us all, and help us understand better our role as cultural agents.
