New Monuments for a Future Generation
Date & Time
Friday, October 8, 2021, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Justin Favela Emmanuel Ortega

Justin Favela joins colonial art scholar Emmanuel Ortega, Ph.D., to discuss contemporary monuments and how Favela’s creative practice disrupts the conventional boundaries of the Land Art canon through subversive tactics rooted in his Latinx culture. Favela is the artist behind projects including Family Fiesta Double Negative and Seven Magic Tires, both located in Las Vegas and made in response to Michael Heizer’s Double Negative and Ugo Rondinone’s Seven Magic Mountains. Both Favela and Ortega aim to deconstruct the silences of history that suppress their own narratives.
