BACC_Preserving Chicana/o/x Art: Conversations on Conservation 4
4/28/22: ¿A Donde Vamos Chicana/o/x? Setting Intentions for Cultural Preservation

The final session of Preserving Chicana/o/x Art: Conversations on Conservation will reflect on concepts and talking points from the previous sessions, while also providing a moment to consider what the future looks like and actionable next steps for the setting of guidelines for Chicana/o/x art conservation. We are led in this conversation by a group of visionary leaders long committed to realizing this important work, including Celia Herrera Rodriguez, artist, co-founder and co-director of Las Maestras Center for Xicana[x] Indigenous Thought, Art and Social Practice at UC Santa Barbara. We’ll get to hear about existing models for tribal communities from Brandie Macdonald, Senior Director of Decolonizing Initiatives at the Museum of Us; efforts to make the field of museum and conservation more inclusive and representative of BIPOC communities from Alessandra Moctezuma, Director of San Diego Mesa College Museum Studies Program and Bianca Garcia, Program Manager for the Andrew W. Mellon Opportunity for Diversity in Conservation, an initiative of the UCLA/Getty Program in the Conservation of Cultural Heritage. Bianca Garcia and Leticia Gomez Franco from BACC and Josephine Talamantez, activist, historian, and Founder of the Chicano Park Museum will be joining live from the Latinos in Heritage Conservation Conference in Denver, CO to highlight long standing, ongoing, and impactful efforts to preserve Chicano/a/x culture in the San Diego region and beyond.
