Sur Gallery
Positionality: Symposium on Latin American & Latinx art in Canada

April 21st-25th 2022
Symposium on Latin American & Latinx art in Canada 
Sur Gallery, 39 Queens Quay E #100, Toronto

The symposium seeks to address the systemic barriers faced by the Latin American and Latinx community in Canada and will identify common grounds from where to begin an analysis with the intention to develop strategies of resistance, build networks of solidarity and exchange, improve the livelihood of art practitioners, and grant opportunities for an underrepresented community. 

The symposium will be a 4-day gathering of a range of voices concerned with Latin American and Latinx art in Canada. Our intention is to build community, valuable contacts, and long-lasting networks. During the symposium we will offer opportunities to engage with artists and scholars during various events, expand perspectives, and develop frameworks for the study ofLatin American and Latinx art in Canada.

For the second day of the symposium of the Sur Gallery, Nuria Carton de Grammont, director and curator of the SBC Gallery of Contemporary Art will moderate the panel "Questioning the mestizaje" with the artists Rodrigo D'Alcântara, Carlos Colin, Migueltzinta Solís, Esteban Pére.
