On Wednesday 11/18, GC PhD candidate Gillian Sneed will give a lecture tracing the arc of Latin American and Latino street-based conceptual and performance art from the 1970s until today. The public talk is planned in conjunction with Acciones en la Calle: Street Works in New York and Latin America circa 1970, on view at SUNY College at Old Westbury through December 4. Curated by Sneed, this historical exhibition considers the conceptual and performative strategies employed by artists in the 1960s and ’70s that rejected institutional spaces in favor of the street as the context and subject of their work.
Participating Artists include Vito Acconci, Artur Barrio, Rosemarie Castoro, Eduardo Costa, Cris Gianakos, Victor Grippo, Stephen Kaltenbach, Leandro Katz, Rosemary Mayer, Ana Mendieta, Marta Minujín, Hélio Oiticica, John Perreault, and Regina Vater.
The lecture will take place Wednesday, November 18, 2015, from 4 – 5PM
