PAMM (1103 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL 33132)

The result of these legacies often produce narrow readings of artistic practices which silence experiences in order to make people more digestible. This conversation will center around Black/Indigenous/Queer/Non-binary Latinx creatives and what it means to disrupt the racial and gender binaries that are dominant in U.S.

Panel participants include artist Janel Martinez, AintiLatina Founder, Guadalupe Maravilla, Artist, and Morel Doucet, Artist, ArtCenter/South Florida resident. This panel is moderated by Naiomy Guerrero.
