Please join us for a virtual conversation between exhibiting artist Yvette Mayorga and art historian Dr. Meredith Martin. The pair will be discussing Mayorga’s maximalist aesthetic and its relationship to a neo-Rococo impulse in contemporary art. They will also delve into Mayorga’s uniquely personal, witty use of historical sources and her interest in making the past relevant and meaningful for the present.
Yvette Mayorga: Dreaming of You is organized by Caitlin Monachino, Curatorial and Publications Manager, and is on view from September 14, 2023 through March 17, 2024.
