On Wednesday October 10, 2012 at 7PM, MOCA will present “Making Art Out of Excess: Exploring Latina Styles and Sexualities,” an art talk series moderated by MOCA educator Anya Wallace in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
The art talks will explore how images of Latina women and girls in visual culture shape ideas about beauty, identity and sexuality.
The talks will be divided in two, one entitled “A Chonga Manifesto: Thinking, Embodying and Re-imagining Latina Girlhood” by MOCA Education Outreach Coordinator Jillian Hernandez.
The second talk is entitled “Cuban Beauties: Assets in Excess” by visual artist and MOCA educator Crystal Pearl.
The Latina Women & The Body is part of MOCA’s Women on the Rise! Program in partnership with FIU’s Women’s Studies Center.
