Transcultural Engagements

(during Museum Nights: Noche de Museo) 



María Rogal, Professor of Graphic Design and Heidi Powell, Assistant Professor of Art Education will discuss how collaborations in Guatemala (Powell) and México (Rogal) provide rich opportunities to explore complexity through a transcultural lens. Both Rogal and Powell are affiliate faculty in the Center for Latin American Studies and find commonalities in their approaches, which emphasize a profound respect for the people they co-create with, their cultures and knowledges, and how they can shape and understand identity through art and design practice. For this conversation, they seek to foster dialogue about place, identity, representation, and creative practice.
