Art History From Home: Latinx Artists Framing the City
This series of online talks by the Whitney’s Joan Tisch Teaching Fellows highlights works in the Museum's collection and current exhibitions to illuminate critical topics in American art from 1900 to the present. During each thirty-minute session, participants are invited to comment and ask questions through a moderated chat for a fifteen-minute Q&A following the talk. Sessions are available live only, Tuesdays at 6 pm and Thursdays at 12 pm, but topics and speakers do periodically repeat. Check whitney.org/events for more sessions added regularly.

Using the Whitney Museum’s permanent collection as a point of departure, this session will consider the ways in which Latinx artists have been critical to the development of New York’s artistic landscape, and the ways in which the city, its communities, and its local culture have served as a direct inspiration for these artists. Bringing together an intergenerational group of artists from the 1960s to the present, including Juan Sánchez, Lady Pink, and Aliza Nisenbaum, we will explore the ways in which New York based Latinx artists have held a central role in representing, framing, and, at times, intervening in the city they call home.

Sofía Silva is the Whitney's curatorial & education fellow in U.S. Latinx Art. She specializes in contemporary Latin American and Latinx art and holds an MA in art history from the Courtauld Institute of Art in London.
