Join us for a lecture with contemporary Mexican artist Betsabeé Romero, as part of her Phoenix residency April 3-10.
Betsabeé Romero lives and works in Mexico City. For over 15 years, her 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.
Romero has realized more than 30 individual exhibitions in México, the United States and Europe, and has participated in a large number of residencies and international biennials. Her work is part of important collections, including: The British Museum, Daros Collection in Switzerland, Phoenix Art Museum, Nelson & Atkins Nevada Museum of Art, World Bank in Washington D.C., Gelman (México), MOCA Los Angeles, and The Museum of Contemporary Art of Porto Alegre (Brazil). Betsabeé Romero is also renown for numerous monumental installations and interventions in urban communities, including East Los Angeles, Chicago, Mexico City, and Toulouse.
This program is organized by CALA Alliance and AZ ArtWorker, a program of the Arizona Commission on the Arts, and presented in collaboration with Phoenix Art Museum.
