Event description

Description

The Office of Latino/Latin American Studies (OLLAS) in collaboration with El Museo Latino is organizing their second biennial art exhibition to be held at El Museo Latino (4701 S. 25th St, Omaha, NE) during Hispanic Heritage Month in 2019. This exhibition will be centered around the motto/lema "The Voice of our Roots/La Voz de Nuestras Raices." The mission of ArteLatinX is to create a biennial art exhibition to bring together Latinx artists from all over Nebraska.

Aside from the exhibition ArteLatinX 2019 will also include several different activities, such as workshops, artist talks, and the Discussion Panel, that will be hosted all around the Omaha Metro.

The topic of the Discussion Panel will be “Latinxs in Art” and will cover a variety of themes related to diversity in the art community nationwide and in Nebraska.

Take a look at who will be participating in the Discussion Panel:

Karin Campbell is the Phil Willson Curator of Contemporary Art at Joslyn Art Museum. Since joining the museum in 2012, Campbell has curated several major exhibitions, including 30 Americans, Word/Play: Prints, Photographs, and Paintings by Ed Ruscha, and Sheila Hicks: Material Voices. She also oversees Joslyn’s collection of postwar and contemporary art and is the principal curator for the Karen and Doug Riley Contemporary Artists Project Gallery, the first space in the museum’s history dedicated specifically to living artists.

Prior to arriving at UNO, Duran taught at the Memphis College of Art.

Recent Individual exhibitions include: Bernice Steinbaum Gallery, Miami; Collette Blanchard Gallery, New York; Frost Museum, Miami; Galeria Diners, Bogotá; Cheryl Pelavin Fine Arts, New York; Sheldon Memorial Museum, Lincoln, Nebraska; Queens Museum of Art, New York; Museo de Arte Contemporáneo, Panamá.
