“Art Activism and the Collective Voice”
Drawing on her UCSD undergraduate student organizing skills and political belief, artist Victoria Delgadillo explores the power of the artistic collective and how various associations have amplified her work as an artist. Delgadillo will discuss her part in bringing an international outcry for resolving the horrific femicides in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico through art and her activism in converting today's exhibition spaces into town hall meeting places. Other areas of discussion will be iconography, social and cultural values/sensitivity, the power of words in art, art that has created social change, the distribution & sharing of artistic expression, and social art that transcends age and cultural barriers. A Q&A follows the presentation.
