> DESCRIPTION

The Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service is proud to join New York University’s celebration of Latino Heritage month with the staging of Raza con "A": A Latina Artists Exhibit, the Fall/Winter 2013 exhibition and special panel discussion at the Gallery Space at Wagner. Curated by Frankie Crescioni-Santoni, the exhibit brings together four New York City-based Latina artists whose bodies of work explore themes of ethnic, cultural, and gender identity. The award-winning artists taking part in the exhibit are a supremely talented group comprised of: Argentinean photographer and Project Luz founder Sol Aramendi (solaramendi.com); Mexican painter, muralist, and multi-media artist Andrea Arroyo (andreaarroyo.com); Colombian painter, collagist, and mixed-media artist Maria Berrio (mariaberrio.com); and Puerto Rican painter, collagist, and photographer Rodriguez Calero (rodriguezcalero.com).

The panel discussion and opening reception will take place on Tuesday, November 12, 6:00PM-9:00PM. RSVP is required via wagner.nyu.edu/events by Friday, November 8.

The Raza con “A” project seeks to present a diversity-driven display that pays homage to Latina/o and Latin American heritage as well as the tremendous contributions of women artists to the New York City visual arts scene. The accompanying panel discussion will serve as a platform to engage artists, scholars, practitioners, and the public in a lively dialogue on the exhibition themes, with a focus on the role Latina visual artists can play in promoting social and gender equity agendas. The panel discussion will be moderated by New-York Historical Society educator and former Metropolitan Museum of Art associate museum educator Rosa Tejada (Dominican Republic). Ms. Tejada, an NYU Arts & Science alumna, is joined by a distinguished multidisciplinary roster of panelists: independent curator, Wexner Center for the Arts Mellon Fellow, and professor of art history and critical theory Denise Carvalho (Brazil); author and Brooklyn College-CUNY professor of Puerto Rican and Latino studies Vanessa Perez (Puerto Rico); and Raza con “A” artists Sol Aramendi and Andrea Arroyo.

Raza con “A” is co-presented by NYU's Department of Social & Cultural Analysis/Latino Studies Program and the Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies (CLACS). The event is co-sponsored by NYU Wagner's Research Center for Leadership in Action (RCLA), the NYU Wagner Association of Latin@s & Allies in Public Service (ALAS), the Student Network Exploring Arts & Culture (SNEAC), and NYU's La Herencia Club.

The Gallery Space at Wager is located on the 2nd floor of the Puck Building, at 295 Lafayette Street, corner of Houston. For more information, please contact Frankie Crescioni-Santoni at wagner.gallery@nyu.edu or 212.998.7400.
