March 23, 2023, 5:30pm: Artist Talk by Esperanza Cortés

Gather with us in our gallery space to hear exhibiting artist, Esperanza Cortés, speak about her exhibition "Tierra Dentro." Cortés is a Colombian-born multidisciplinary artist based in New York City whose poetic and intricately crafted sculptural installations and mixed media paintings are inspired by folk art traditions, rituals, music, and dance of the Americas. Through the work, Cortés reconsiders the social and historical narratives of colonialism and raises critical questions about the politics of erasure and exclusion.

Following her artist talk on Thursday, March 23, Esperanza Cortés will lead a ceramic workshop at The Current, demonstrating the techniques used to create the intricate flowers and designs that grace her work passed down to her directly from her Colombian mother.
