Tour of INDECENCIA with Teaching Artist Anna Parisi (English Language)

Oct 22, 2022 - Oct 22, 2022

In person: Saturday, October 2212:00 – 1:00pm

Join Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art 2021 Fellow and Teaching Artist, Anna Parisi, for a participatory mid-day conversation, highlighting works from our current exhibition "INDECENCIA." This program will take place at the museum.

INDECENCIA 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.

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
