About this Event
What spaces do Latin American voices occupy within the Canadian art scene? How and where do their practices, discourses, and histories circulate? This panel invites four guests to discuss the ecosystem of Latin American media art in Canada, informed by their experiences working for, as well as directing academic, commercial, and artistic institutions: Laura Levin, director of the research-creation group Hemispheric Encounters and Sensorium: Centre for Digital Arts and Technology; Diana Sanchez, former programmer at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF); Tamara Toledo, director and curator of Sur Gallery, and Luz Sierra, researcher and archivist on the digital archive project Archivo at Sur Gallery. The guests will share their experiences promoting the visibility of Latin American artists in Canada through different formats, as screenings, exhibitions, digital archives, interdisciplinary, collaborative, and transnational projects.
The conversation will run for approximately 70 minutes, followed by 20 mins for Q&A.
