Guadalupe Maravilla | Virtual Artist Talk
Wed. Oct 7, 5pm
Register for free tickets

Guadalupe Maravilla is a transdisciplinary visual artist, choreographer, and healer. At the age of eight, Maravilla was part of the first wave of unaccompanied, undocumented children to arrive at the United States border in the 1980s as a result of the Salvadoran Civil War. In 2016, Maravilla became a U.S. citizen and adopted the name Guadalupe Maravilla in solidarity with his undocumented father, who uses Maravilla as his last name. As an acknowledgement of his own migratory past, Maravilla grounds his practice in the historical and contemporary contexts of immigrant culture, particularly those belonging to Latinx communities.

Workshop: 'Remix/Demix: Archival Discrepancies'
Thurs. Oct 1, 3pm-5pm

Join artist Jazzmen Lee-Johnson for a workshop examining ways artists interpolate archival research in their creative practice(s) and the ways you can use remix as an artistic form of discourse in your own academic research. From analogue drum machines and break beats, to loops, memes, videos and zines, REMIX is a sampling of a primary source, manipulated, recycled, re-positioned and transformed into a new material reality. Participants will be introduced to Lee-Johnson's work while learning about archives available through Brown University and beyond. Enrollment is limited to ensure opportunities for active discussion and open conversation. Registration is required and spots are limited. Please register using this form here.
