“How do you make someone present when history has made such an effort to erase them?” In her site-specific installation for The Modern Window, artist Firelei Baez invites us to consider the stories of marginalized Afro-Latina and Afro-Caribbean women. Take a close look at the installation and discuss the artist’s process and use of symbols. This 30-minute session will take place outside, weather permitting, so please bring your coat.
This session is led by Diana Bush and Angela Garcia.
