Leading with Artivism – The Body is a Battleground (virtual)

June 24, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

“Leading with Artivism” is a live monthly interview series, created and curated by Poet Gold in collaboration with Arts Mid-Hudson, featuring a diverse mix of Artivists (Artist Activists) who have taken up the charge through their art to highlight social issues.
 
This month’s virtual talk is with artivist Gerardo Castro. Castro’s work illustrates marvelous glittery, unmistakably black, and emphatically brown figures elaborately costumed posing in what appears to be wallpapered interior spaces, rich in color and compositions that celebrate the visual texture of his Afro-Descendant culture, affirming that Latino identity is a means of empowerment (be it social, spiritual, political or personal).
