Please join us for the 143rd Steven & Dorothea Green Critics' Lecture with Arlene Dávila.

Taking place in our Grand Galleries, this talk will draw from her book Latinx Art: Artists, Markets and Politics and her work at The Latinx Project at NYU, examining how contemporary art critics, museums, gallery owners, and others define, (mis)understand, and engage with Latinx artists in exhibitions, museums, and the market. It also considers what is at stake when we center the creativity of Latinx art and artists, exploring how thinking through Latinx art can guide us towards more equitable and diverse contemporary art worlds.

Arlene Dávila is a Professor of Anthropology and American Studies at New York University, and a recognized public intellectual focusing on questions of cultural equity, Latinx and critical race studies. She is the author of multiple books focusing on Latinx cultural politics spanning the media, urban politics, museums and contemporary art markets.

Since 1981, the Steven & Dorothea Green Critics’ Lecture Series has introduced internationally renowned artists, museum curators, scholars, and critics to the South Florida Community. These speakers have shaped art history through their scholarly, creative, and leadership contributions. They have inspired us to think critically, investigate further, and consider the discourses and practices that shape the world of art. Funding for this event is provided by the Dorothea and Steven Green Endowment.

This event is free and open to the public.
