In this 90-minute workshop, explore a sound-based artwork by Guadalupe Maravilla in the installation Luz y fuerza. This session will be facilitated by artist Jeannette Rodríguez Píneda, along with MoMA Education staff. Our intention is to offer a welcoming, calm space for individuals to experience and respond to art together. Slow Looking is part of the initiative Artful Practices for Well-Being, which offers ideas for connectedness and healing through art. This Slow Looking session will be offered twice, once online via Zoom, on March 23, and once at the Museum in the installation Luz y fuerza on March 24.
Jeannette Rodríguez Píneda is a visual storyteller and education designer residing between la isla of Kiskeya/Ayiti y Lenape Matinecock land. Using antiquarian plant-based image-making as a means of remembering soils called home, their work explores the tension of memory and permanence. They have an intergenerational teaching practice rooted in creativity as ancestral practice.
Guadalupe Maravilla is a transdisciplinary visual artist, choreographer, and healer. At the age of eight, Maravilla was part of the first wave of unaccompanied, undocumented children to arrive at the United States border in the 1980s as a result of the Salvadoran Civil War. In 2016, Maravilla became a US citizen and adopted the name Guadalupe Maravilla in solidarity with his undocumented father, who uses Maravilla as his last name. As an acknowledgement of his own migratory past, Maravilla grounds his practice in the historical and contemporary contexts of immigrant culture, particularly those belonging to Latinx communities.
