How is that non-white Mestizajes transform and expand the artistic canon? What does it imply to speak about an indigenous planetary indigeneity? Pablo José Ramírez will speak about the relationship between indigeneity, Mestizaje and contemporary art, from a comparative perspective. Ramírez will also discuss some of his recent projects including: his research around Garifuna Cultures in the Central American Caribbean; his editorial ideas around non-western sonic cultures with the curatorial platform Infrasonica, and his work as Adjunct Curator at Tate Modern.
Pablo José Ramírez was the sixth recipient of the ICI/CPPC Travel Award for Central America and the Caribbean in 2019, and traveled to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Honduras, Belize, and Guatemala to learn about the history and culture of Garifuna people, the descendants of an Afro-indigenous population from Saint Vincent.
This event is accessible to people with mobility disabilities. Please contact ICI for additional accessibility needs.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
