Artist Talk: Favianna Rodriguez
Art, Social Justice and the Radical Imaginary
Culture surrounds us all the time. It shapes our identity and forges our collective imagination. How does art inspire new ways of thinking? How can art-based strategies strengthen our work? Join artist, Favianna Rodriguez as she shares examples of her visual art pieces, and discusses how art can inspire, educate, and help spur the imagination beyond the realms of what politics can do.
Favianna Rodriguez is an interdisciplinary visual artist and community organizer who merges her artistic practice with political activism. Through her bold, vivid artwork, she has become a leading voice in raising awareness about immigration, women’s issues, globalization and economic injustice.
This talk in conjunction with Favianna’s residency at the Northeastern Center for the Arts, and an exhibition of her artwork is on display at Gallery 360.
