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 workshop will consist of a short introduction to Mopa Mopa, which is a colonial tradition of collage that still exists today. The partcipants engaging in Mopa Mopa will be assisted by artist Nancy Friedemann-Sanchez.

There are only 15 spots available. Hurry and reserve your spot now!

Participants must be 16 years or older.

A little information over the Workshop Artist:

Nancy Friedemann-Sanchez, deliberately manages an economy of materials in her work. Her large scale drawings alude to Minimalism and the Pattern and Decoration Movement but explicitly explore the experience of identity, memory and gender. Nancy Friedemann-Sanchez has a masters degree from New York University; a BFA from Otis Art Institute and undergraduate studies from La Universidad de Los Andes, Bogotá, Colombia. 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.

For any questions please contact Yuriko Doku, OLLAS Assistant Director, at ydoku@unomaha.edu or 402.554.3835
