Join Dr. Lorena Gauthereau, Digital Programs Manager for the U.S. Latino Digital Humanities Center at the University of Houston’s Recovering the U.S. Hispanic Literary Heritage Project, for a discussion on fashion as resistance, the significance of archival histories, recovery/re-presentation of histories, and the U.S.-Mexico border in relation to the exhibition, Troy Montes Michie: Rock of Eye.
Born in El Paso, Texas, artist Troy Montes Michie’s practice reflects his experience growing up along the U.S. and Mexico border. His solo exhibition, Troy Montes Michie: Rock of Eye, expands from his past assemblages and collages that center magazine images of the Black male body and trace the social history and form of the zoot suit.
Light lunch will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
RSVPs via Eventbrite are required for this event as space is limited. More information coming soon.
