Online tour with Anna Parisi, Anna Costa e Silva, and Nina Terra (Portuguese and English)

Dec 09, 2022 - Dec 09, 2022

Friday, December 9 6:00 – 7:30pm in Eastern Time (US and Canada) – Portuguese Language and English Translation

Join Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art 2021 Fellow and Teaching Artist, Anna Parisi, with artists Anna Costa e Silva and Nina Terra for an evening conversation, highlighting works from our current exhibition "INDECENCIA." This online program will happen in Portuguese, with English translations for a local and international audience, inviting audiences of all ages to listen in and engage in conversation around a few select works on view chosen by the teaching artist.

INDECENCIA, curated by Nicolás Dumit Estévez Raful Espejo Ovalles, brings together a cohort of queer/rare* artists from Latin America and/or of Latin American descent and living in the United States, Europe, and the Caribbean or in-between spaces/identities, whose praxes center on performance art and ephemeral actions. From the perspective of several generations, countries, and sociopolitical contexts, these artists invite us to consider Latinidad/Latinxidad and its relationship to religion, enfleshment, and sexuality. Their inquiries extend—through videos, props, scripts, costumes, and other channels—to the disjointed corpus of an entire hemisphere where, for many, the colonized and the colonizer can easily wrestle within a single body.

O Leslie Lohman Museum apresenta a artista plástica Anna Parisi, bolsista docente do programa para artistas de 2021 e artista educadora do museu. Juntem-se à nós para uma tarde de conversas participativas com foco nas obras da presente exposição “INDECENCIA”. Esse encontro online será conduzido em português, com tradução para o inglês. Esse evento está aberto ao público de todas as idades a ouvir e conversar sobre algumas obras selecionadas da exposição.

Anna Parisi is an Afro-Brazilian multidisciplinary artist, writer, and curator working with collage, video, and sculpture. She is an Artist Fellow at the Leslie Lohman Museum and a John and Lynn Kearney Fellow at Gallery Affero. Through her practice, she creates works that provoke and evoke visceral, cathartic experiences around racial politics, inviting engagement by allowing space for self-reflection, vulnerability, and healing. Dismantling and opposing the vicious apparatuses of hegemonic patriarchy, colonialism, and systemic violence inspires her artistic practice. Her work has been exhibited in North and South America, Europe, and Asia. She currently lives in Brooklyn, New York.
