On Thursday, April 7 at 6 pm visual artist Julieta Gil and artist/activist Abdul Aziz will take part in a dialogue with one another, moderated by Dr. Guadalupe Garcia, bringing into relief the parallels between these monumental issues in New Orleans and Mexico City through a conversation about their diverse practices. The event will be held in Stone Auditorium in the Woldenberg Art Center on Tulane University’s uptown campus. It is free and open to the public and will follow all COVID-19 guidelines as put forth by the university here.
This artist talk is a part of “Monumental Iconoclasms,” a multi-part symposium taking place between April 5 and 10 considering contemporary challenges to existing monuments in New Orleans and Mexico City.
Please join us as Dr. Guadalupe Garcia moderates a conversation between visual artist Julieta Gil and artist-activist Abdul Aziz. These artists’ work probes issues of monumentality, collective action, and place change in Mexico City and New Orleans, and their practices.
