[Virtual] Conversation with artist Alejandro Cartagena
*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 05/29/2020
The George Eastman Museum has recently announced that the formerly postponed artist’s talks with Alejandro Cartagena (Mexican, b. Dominican Republic, b. 1977), originally scheduled for March 27 and March 28, have been rescheduled as virtual conversations. A Spanish-language talk will be held on Thursday, May 28 at 1 p.m. and an English-language conversation between the artist and Heather Shannon, Associate Curator at the George Eastman Museum, on Friday, May 29 at 1p.m. Both talks are free, but registration is required as space is limited.
An exhibition of Cartagena’s work, Alejandro Cartagena: Photo Structure / Foto Estructura, had been on view at the George Eastman Museum since January 31, before the museum temporarily closed due to the pandemic. Co-organized by the George Eastman Museum and the Chrysler Museum of Art, the exhibition presents Cartagena’s latest work, including several new pieces. The exhibition and its accompanying audio tour are presented in both English and Spanish. The exhibition has now been adapted as a virtual tour, in both English and Spanish, for guests to experience from home. To view the virtual exhibitions, listen to the audio tour, or to see how Cartagena created these works, visit eastman.org.
