Additional engagements and info will be posted here as it becomes available.
For over 15 years, Betsabeé Romero’s work has paid attention to issues of migration and mobility through the symbols and everyday rituals of the culture of global consumption, such as cars, tattoos and urban signage. During her Phoenix residency, Romero will present a variety of public programs and engagements free and open to the public. She will also collaborate with local artists and community members to create site-specific projects connected to her ongoing practice of modifying, intervening and deconstructing cars as a platform for addressing social and cultural issues.
On Wednesday, April 5, 2017, we will present an artist talk with Romero at Phoenix Art Museum. This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
This program is generously supported by the Diane & Bruce Halle Foundation and the Emily T. Hall Tremaine Foundation.
