Statement

As a Latin American artist, I am investigating how to use our local knowledge, lived realities, and histories as new expressions of social and cultural progress. My research topic explores and connects the core cultural, theoretical, social, political, artistic intersections between art, society, and decolonialization. I have studied baroque as a colonial legacy in contemporary Mexico, and by extension, Latin America. One of the goals of my research and art practice is to encourage new generations in Latin America and abroad to be exposed to Latin American theories, culture, and knowledge. My interdisciplinary research areas of interest \include History, Art History, Latin American Art, Contemporary Art, Latin American History, Anthropology, History, and Indigenous Knowledge Systems.
