Americas Society

May 1, 2020


Michelle Hernandez Vega in conversation with Diana Flatto, Assistant Curator, Visual Arts.

Join us live on Instagram from your cell phone, or watch here and on YouTube after, for a series of remote visits to artists' studios to bring Americas Society's Visual Arts public programs to your home. Every Wednesday and Friday this month, contemporary artists will dialogue with our Visual Arts department about their work and practice.

About the artist:

Michelle Hernandez Vega (b.1990) is a multimedia artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. She received an MFA in studio art from Hunter College and a BFA in photography from the School of Visual Arts. She explores themes of biculturalism, translation, family history and memory, and the mythification and ephemerality in their inherent production. Her work has been included in exhibitions at such venues as Dispersed Holdings, New York; Rinomina, Paris; and Galeria Agustina Ferreyra, San Juan, PR.
