He sobrevivido (I Have Survived) Miguel A. López en diálogo con Katie Numi Usher y Johan Mijail
As part of UNTITLED, ART’s Caribbean focused programming, the fair is presenting this panel conversation in Spanish. This conversation is an approach to the work of two poets and visual artists from the Caribbean, whose work explores intimacy, immigration, memory, affection, health, and colonial persistence in contemporary society. Johan Mijail (Dominican Republic) and Katie Numi Usher (Belize) have developed poetic languages that explore survival in the face of violence in a misogynistic and patriarchal world, invoking silenced stories from Afro-descendant skin and bodies, as well as creating anti-racist responses from the word. This dialogue explores the intersections between art, poetry and activism in their work from two different geographies, the Central American Caribbean and the archipelago.

Esta conversación propone un acercamiento al trabajo de dos poetas y artistas visuales del Caribe, cuya obra explora la intimidad, la inmigración, la memoria, el afecto, la salud, y la persistencia colonial en la sociedad contemporánea. Johan Mijail (República Dominicana) y Katie Numi Usher (Belice) han construido una poética que explora la sobrevivencia frente a la violencia de un mundo misógino y patriarcal, invocando historias silenciadas desde la piel y los cuerpos afrodescendientes, así como ensayando respuestas antiracistas desde la palabra. Este diálogo explora las intersecciones entre arte, poesía y activismo en su obra desde dos geografías distintas, el Caribe centroamericano y el archipiélago.
