Join Mela Dávila Freire for a Curatorial talk about Off-Register and the research process that led to the production of the exhibition. Dávila will be in conversation with writer Silvina López Medin. The talk will be moderated by Paloma Celis Carbajal, Curator for Latin American, Iberian and Latino Studies Collections at The New York Public Library. A selection of artists’ publications from the collections of The New York Public Library will be on display throughout the talk for the audience to view them.
The Curatorial talk will be held on Thursday, October 6 from 2:00pm to 3:30pm, in Room 216 in the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at The New Public Library.
Off-Register features the creative practices of a series of Latin American women artists, who between 1960 and 1990, channeled part of their artistic impetus into printed and serialized media. The exhibition aims to offer a perspective on artists’ publications created in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, focusing on the printed works by some thirty-seven women artists who originated from or developed their practice in various Latin American countries – Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Venezuela – and the Chicano community in the United States.
This Curatorial Talk is organized by The New York Public Library in partnership with Center for Book Arts. This program is in conjunction with the exhibition Off-Register: Publishing Experiments by Women Artists in Latin America, 1960 – 1990.
