In association with the Getty and the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU, the first ever Frieze symposium in New York will raise discussion on topics related to Latin American and Latino Art featured in the upcoming “Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA”, a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles.

10:30am: Exhibition Focus: "Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960-1985"

With Rocío Aranda-Alvarado, Cecilia Fajardo-Hill, María Evelia Marmolejo and Sylvia Palacios Whitman

This exhibition will present the extraordinary contributions of women artists from Latin America and those of Latina and Chicana descent in the U.S., who were working from 1960-1985, when there was a radical experimentation in art and activism in the women's rights movement. The touring exhibition will be presented at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, in September 2017, and the Brooklyn Museum, New York, in 2018.

With Rocío Aranda-Alvarado (moderator), Senior Curator at El Museo del Barrio; Cecilia Fajardo-Hill, Co-Curator of the exhibition; María Evelia Marmolejo, featured artist; and Sylvia Palacios Whitman, featured artist.
