Álvårez considers this topic as expressed in contemporary art that references and addresses the socio-political context and intense cultural background of Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Haiti, and uses it as a jumping off point for a discussion that will delve into the past as well as focusing on the current working methods and practices of artists focused on issues of colonial and post-colonial oppression. We’ll open up conversation on a range of subjects including the dearth of people of color as curators in the US and recent activism aimed at discriminatory art practices at US institutions including the Whitney Museum of American Art.

Artists and art enthusiasts are encouraged to join the conversation. Suggested reading in advance of meeting: The Yams, On the Whitney and White Supremacy by Ben Davis.

Camilø Álvårez is the Owner/Director/Curator/Preparator of Samsøñ in Boston.
