Join Coco Lopez, our artist-in-residence, for a free #arte fun-filled day with the Isla York collective, as they respond to her work and research. Stop by and experience the process with live DJ music, poetry readings, and more. Families are also invited to have their portraits taken and/or record their oral histories at El Museo. It is also the last day to visit the current artist-in-residence before the next studio rotation.Presented as part of “Office Hours” (OH), a project by Nicolás Dumit Estévez in collaboration with El Museo del Barrio’s staff, artists and audiences.

Thank you Fred Spears! BCA’s first interview.

Tumblin’: Black Contemporary Art

I’m not going to say much for Black Contemporary Art, because I completely agree with the moderators’ point below that the last thing diasporic art needs is more pigeonholing and genre-fication (let alone by a quasi-intellectual white guy in Canada). BCA is, as it says, a safe place for “art about and by artists of the diaspora.” Kim, Coco, and Geraldine are brilliant, inviting, and incredibly talented people, and it was genuinely an honor to talk to them about a project in which they’re all deeply, personally invested. That, I think, is all the introduction they need. 

How did each of you get involved in art, and how did you meet each other?
