How do contemporary artists work both across and against borders to produce social and political change? This panel, in conjunction with Art for the Future: Artists Call and Central American Solidarities, turns to artists, based in both the U.S. and Guatemala, to consider aesthetic strategies that work to dismantle imperialist histories and build decolonial alliances across time and space. Featuring art historian Kency Cornejo and artists Benvenuto Chavajay, Sandra Monterroso, and Beatriz Cortez, with Adriana Zavala, Associate Professor, History of Art and Architecture and Studies in Race, Colonialism, and Diaspora, Tufts University. This program will be presented mostly in Spanish with English interpretation.
