Professor Emeritus Malaquias Montoya in ¡Printing the Revolution! Virtual Conversation Series
Professor Emeritus Malaquias Montoya will participate in a virtual panel discussion in the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s ¡Printing the Revolution! Virtual Conversation Series: From Black and Brown Solidarity to Afro-Latinidad on Thursday, February 18 at 6:30 pm (EST).
The activist and the cultural dimensions of the civil rights–era fueled solidarity movements between Black and Latinx artists, leaving a visible imprint in the graphic arts that continues to reverberate today. This panel features three artists from ¡Printing the Revolution! who have engaged with these concerns across the decades. Montoya will be joined with Favianna Rodriguez, an interdisciplinary artist, cultural strategist, and activist, based in Oakland, California, and Moses Ros-Suárez, an artist, printmaker, and architect, and a member of the Dominican York Proyecto GRAFICA, a collective of Dominican American graphic artists. The panel will be moderated by Kaelyn Rodríguez, assistant professor in art history at Santa Monica College.
