4th Gathering of the RI Latino Arts Network

The fourth and final RILatino Arts Network gathering in 2013 will be a community reception in partnership with the David Winton Bell Gallery, List Art Center at Brown University. Preceding the reception, join us for a symposium...
The David Winton Bell Gallery will present a symposium in conjunction with the opening of Vincent Valdez | The Strangest Fruit on October 18, 2013 from 3:30 to 6:30 pm.

The Strangest Fruit, Valdez's new series of ten large-scale paintings, references the lynching of Latinos in the United States and metaphorically illustrates the persecution and oppression felt by contemporary Latino Americans. Monica Muñoz Martinez, Daniel Hernandez, and Vincent Valdez will respond to the works and the histories and contemporary experiences that fostered them.


Monica Muñoz Martinez, Carlos E. Castañeda Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Texas at Austin, will present “Reckoning with Anti-Mexican Violence: Visual Legacies of State Sanctioned Violence in Texas, 1910-Present.” Daniel Hernandez, Editor, VICE México, Mexico City, will follow with “Hanging Brown Men,” and the symposium will conclude with an artist lecture by Vincent Valdez.

Immediately after the symposium, there will be a community reception to meet the artist. The event is FREE and open to the public.
