The virtual talk will be on Instagram
From July to November 2020, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD) will host virtual Charlas, “talks” in Spanish, related to themes of Chicanx, Latinx, and Border Art in conjunction with the online exhibition “To Tame a Wild Tongue: Art after Chicanismo.” The Charlas feature exhibition curator Alana Hernandez in conversation with exhibiting artists on Instagram Live.
Join the Charla on Thursday, August 20 at 11am with Claudia Cano. Working in photography, film, and performance, San Diego-based Claudia Cano explores issues of labor, gender, and inequality. Focusing on the home and labor associated with the domestic sphere, Cano brings visibility to an often invisible Latinx workforce.
The online exhibition “To Tame a Wild Tongue: Art after Chicanismo” brings together over twenty-five artists from the Museum’s collection to explore distinct aspects of the Mexican American experience. Featuring works from the 1980s to the present, the exhibition explores the reverberations of the post-Chicano moment, with special attention paid to our transnational border region.
