Panel Conversation,“Contemporary Art and Folk Art Practices” at Buffalo Arts Studio
Buffalo Arts Studio will host a panel discussion on how artists are influenced by the intersection of their cultural histories and contemporary experiences. BAS Executive Director Alma Carrillo will serve as moderator. This discussion will consider the way(s) one can be a contemporary artist while practicing "folk art,” how this category creates hierarchy and inequity for those outside of academic practices, and how curators, galleries, and collecting institutions can make space for artists within “art museums,” rather than relegating these artists and their practices to archaeological, ethnographic, and/or folk art museums. The panel will include exhibiting collaborative artists, Multinational Art Illumination; Beatriz Flores, El Batey Executive Director; Corporación Piñones Director Maricruz Rivera Clemente, and artist Kanien’kehá:ka mother, artist, teacher and language learner Jodi Lynn Maracle. Spanish translation support will be available.
