Of Bodies & Borders

Adriana Zavala is an Associate Professor in the Department of History of Art and Architecture and the Department of Studies in Race, Colonialism, and Diaspora at Tufts University.  She specializes in modern Mexican and contemporary US Latinx art. She is founding co-director of the US Latinx Art Forum, a 501c3 dedicated to the art and art history of the US Latinx community. Her first book Becoming Modern, Becoming Tradition: Women, Gender, and Representation in Mexican Art, a feminist study of Mexican visual art, won the Arvey Prize from the Association of Latin American Art. Her current work includes a co-authored book about 20th-century Mexican intellectuals and visual artists who grappled with Mexico City’s Aztec foundations to visualize a modern city informed by colonial maps, manuscripts and archaeological studies. She also writes about Latinx visual art, race and colonialism. Her curatorial projects include Frida Kahlo: Art Garden Life for The New York Botanical Garden with the accompanying catalog Frida Kahlo’s Garden.

The title for her presentation has not been determined yet.

We have limited in-person audience to 50 and hope to live-stream the event for others.
