Mujer Artista presents Tamara Toledo at MAWA
Wed July 10 – 7 PM to 8 PM
MAWA: Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art
611 Main Street, Winnipeg
Tamara Toledo (Toronto) has curated numerous group and solo exhibitions, designed the Latin American Speakers Series inviting internationally renowned contemporary artists and curators to Toronto and has presented various platforms to articulate and discuss issues of identity and intercultural dynamics in contemporary art. Her writing has appeared in ARM Journal, C Magazine, Fuse and Canadian Art.
Her practice often follows an interdisciplinary approach and touches on notions of memory, identity, gender, Latin American diasporas, transnationalism, issues of power, equity, representation and international artistic-cultural interaction.
Toledo is co-founder of the Allende Arts Festival and of Latin American Canadian Art Projects (LACAP) and is curator of Sur Gallery (Toronto), the only space in Canada dedicated to contemporary local, national and international Latin American artists.
Mujer Artista acknowledges the support of the Canada Council for the Arts and MAWA: Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art for enabling us to present this public curator talk.
