Santiago Espinosa de los Monteros will lecture on the curatorial efforts and strategies needed to stimulate uncompromising dialogues about Latin America’s most pressing socio-political issues.  By using Mexican artist Teresa Margolles’ work What Else Can We Talk About? as a case study, which was included in the 2009 Venice Biennale through Espinosa de los Monteros’ support, the talk will unfold the mechanics of transparency that resisted the institutional backlash to the artist’s raw representations of Mexico’s complex reality.  Furthermore, Espinosa de los Monteros will reflect on the necessity of engaging the public with uncomfortable cultural manifestations as a method to promote social awareness and change.
