This popular series of lectures and presentations by artists, architects, historians, and critics is free and open to the public each Tuesday from through November 14.
This Tuesday, Nov. 7, features Mexico-city based artist Minerva Cuevas.
Cuervas is a conceptual artist who generates projects in response to politically charged contexts. Her practice encompasses painting, video, sculpture, photography and installation.
For Tuesday Evenings, Cuevas’s presentation is centered on research-based projects formally developed through the use of socio-cultural strategies, including actions such as marking a crossing point in the Chihuahuan desert at the US-Mexico border, or multidisciplinary processes such as the simultaneous collaboration with the SFMOMA and public libraries around the subject of public knowledge. She explores the possibilities of generating positive social impact from the sphere of culture.
