Host Camila Montañez and New Latin Wave founder, Sokio, dig into the super cool things that make up Latinx cultural multiverse. In this episode New Latin Wave contributor Melissa Saenz-Gordon interviewed Art Historians Andrea Giunta (based in Buenos Aires) and Cecilia Fajardo-Hill (based in Los Angeles) who curated the groundbreaking exhibition, Radical Women: Latin American Art 1960-1985 and Carmen Hermo, Associate Curator at the Elizabeth E. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum.
Why is an exhibition about radical Latina/Latinx women necessary? What makes the female body political? Was it easy to find a venue? Why were women drawn to new media? These questions are all answered by curators Andrea Giunta, Cecilia Fajardo-Hill and Carmen Hermo. Featuring over 123 artists from 15 countries, Radical Women: Latin American Art 1960-1985 was first shown at the Hammer Museum at UCLA as a part of the Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative by the Getty Foundation, then the Brooklyn Museum, and finally at the Pinacoteca in São Paolo.
