“En el fondo considero que la labor de los museos es social y el rol del arte también es social, es un dispositivo muy importante para cambiar el mundo. El arte sensibiliza a la gente y, en ese proceso, el público toma consciencia de su realidad, se conecta con su contexto y eso te vuelve una persona más vinculada, más activa y compriometiva con tu comunidad.” - @charpenelpatrick | Gracias @jesusgar10 and @eldiariony for the thoughtful coverage of the vision of our #jefe for @elmuseo | see ⛓️ in bio #latinx #arte #culture #latinamerica #legacy #history #representationmatters 🙌🏻🙌🏼🙌🏽🙌🏾🙌🏿


#ARTE Our friends at the @brooklynmuseum present ‘Radical Women: Latin America’ an exhibition exploring the contributions to contemporary art of Latin American and Latina women artists during a period of extraordinary conceptual and aesthetic experimentation. Featuring more than 120 artists from 15 countries, Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960–1985 focuses on their use of the female body for political and social critique and artistic expression. The show includes 3 works from @elmuseo Permanent Collection by former Director #MartaMorenoVega and artist @esterhernandezart | On View April 13 - July 22. || 🎨 Sylvia Palacios Whitman, Passing Through, 1977. #latinx #latina #arte #permanentcollection

#ARTE “Use forms and actions that are legible for the resistance but new to the repressors. The time you have is the time they are using to figure out how to respond. Feeling good is not enough: create a political moment.” - @taniabruguera || On view March 21st at @hehgallery as part of ‘QUEENIE: Select artworks by female artists in El Museo del Barrio’s Collection’ | see ⛓️ in bio for info | 🎨 Tania Bruguera, performing El Peso de la Culpa, 1997-1999, Caracas, Venezuela, Collection of @elmuseo || #latinx #arte #latina #cuba

We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of our dear friend and supporter Lisa Garcia Quiroz (@lmq212).

Her contributions to the Latino community and the countless people she impacted is unparalleled. Our most sincere condolences to her family and friends. #qepd #rip #lisagarciaquiroz
