Anti-Deportation Suitcase Solidarity Art Action

Students are asked to engage in one of three art-actions to unpack the plight of immigrants today. First, they will consider what would they take if faced with deportation which allows deportees to pack only 25lbs of belongings. For this art-action they will design a suitcase to speak to the issue. Second, they will imagine and create a passport that expands the notion of identity when it is not tied to a nationality. Lastly, they will consider the iconic civil rights poster "I Am A Man" and work on a large group painting that reclaims the humanity of children that have been separated from their families at the border. The new statement they would work with is "I Am A Child".

The Alchemist in The City - new mixed media cityscapes of New York City. The cityscape images are part of an ongoing visual exploration stemming from a lifetime of living, working and playing in The City. The mixed media drawings examine an idealized image of place. The urban panoramas document a rapidly changing city that through its robust development often masks an underlying history of racial politics and disenfranchisement of local communities.

El Museo Del Barrio- Artist Talk : "Las Mujeres De Abril and the 1965 Revolution in DR"

Artist Talk in El Museo's Galerias about my residency project Las Mujeres De Abril and the 1965 Revolution in DR. This body of work references a tradition of artists (Goya,  Picasso, and George Grosz) who created images of war and aggression. I will be talking about the aftershock of revolutions, and how Artists  can explore and unpack history to create images that communicate knowledge and stories that affect change. The images can also shift the viewer's perceptions about current events.
