In our upcoming Virtual Dialogue, Christina De León, Associate Curator of Latino Design at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, will discuss her research and efforts to build a collection and develop exhibitions focused on US Latinx and Latin American design. As the first person to hold this newly created position, De León will share how she has worked to examine the Americas within a regional and global context, highlighting relationships and influences that tell multifaceted stories and delve deeper into important yet underrepresented narratives. She will be joined in conversation with Jorge Rivas, the Denver Art Museum‘s Frederick & Jan Mayer Curator of Spanish Colonial Art, for a discussion about decorative arts as well as collecting histories.
The Decorative Arts Trust hosts virtual dialogues that feature scholars sharing and discussing their exciting new research with experts in the field. The hour-long Zoom program includes a lecture, scholar-to-scholar conversation, and Q&A with the program participants.
