Latinx Art: Maps, Madres, and Malinches

Who and what is a “Latinx”? And how is it different from Latin American? This lecture offers a cursory inside look at the diverse field of “Latinx Art” through contemporary artist production, mapmaking practices that date back to the 15th century, and a long history of visualizing important mother figures in art such as the Madonna and Malinche/Malintzin. This talk bridges historic work with contemporary production to offer a rounded view of a few key issues that artists from Latinx communities grapple with in their work today, including dislocation, mapping, homeland, belonging, and care practices.
