    In Conversation: María Martínez-Cañas with Susanna Temkin

    Time:  5:30pm—6:30pm

    As part of the Spring 2023 Open Classroom project at the Neuberger Museum of Art, Cuban-born conceptual artist María Martínez-Cañas and El Museo del Barrio curator Susanna V. Temkin will join Assistant Professor of Art History Hilary W. Sánchez for a wide-ranging discussion covering artistic process, photography’s unique relationship to reality and memory, and Latinx and Latin American art history.

    During the conversation, learn more about Martínez-Cañas’ unique style of deftly combining recognizable subject matter to create multi-layered compositions that play with perception and memory as seen in the artist’s 1988 photograph, Isla de Ventanas (Island of Windows), on view at the NEU from February 8 - May 28, 2023.
