Conversations with Artists

November 8, 2018, 6:30 pm

The University of Maryland Center for Art and Knowledge at The Phillips Collection

New York-based artist Kenny Rivero aims to deconstruct the histories and identities he has been conditioned to understand as absolute, reengineering those parts into new wholes with new functions. His art explores the broken narrative of Dominican American identity, socio-geographic solidarity, familial expectations, race, and gender roles. In conversation with W. C. Richardson, Chair, Department of Art, University of Maryland.
