Alex gives two talks at the Smithsonian Latino Center

Last week, I was so pleased to reconvene with my collaborator-in-crime Josh T. Franco, the Latino Collections Specialist for the Archives of American Art, to give a two-artist talk titled, "Latinx Intersections of Game Design and Art." Later that afternoon, I presented another talk with the Latino Museum Studies Program Fellows in attendance, "Imagining Speculative Futures Using Community Assets and Archives." Artist Adál Maldonado dropped in for my second talk of the day- what a treat! 

Here are some snapshots from my visit to the Smithsonian Latino Center:

Two artists and what a fellowship organizer looks like at the end of a long week. Bonus points for our eighth grade yearbook poses.
