Latin American Art Series: The Decolonial Turn in Latinx Art

Tatiana Reinoza will revisit Latin American theories of mestizaje and consider how they can shift in meaning for Latinx artists in the U.S. diaspora.


Professor Tatiana Reinoza (University of Notre Dame) will examine the practices of Sandra Fernández, Michael Menchaca, and Kukuli Velarde to show how their work exemplifies this shift and aims to decolonize how we understand race in contemporary society.

The talk will run from 6 to 7 p.m., including time for Q&A. Afterwards, there will be a reception with light refreshments in the museum’s galleries. Please register using the form below to ensure we have enough refreshments available.

The Latin American Art Series is supported by The Arts & Lectures Committee of Ursinus College.
