Artist Performance: Emilio Rojas at the DePaul Art Museum
November 9, 2019 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Join artist Emilio Rojas in the gallery for a performance that will activate his work on view in Remember Where You Are, an exhibition that brings together four emerging artists to make visible untold narratives of culture and place. Rojas uses his body as a political tool in performances to address legacies of colonialism and oppression across history and geography. His recent research examines Christopher Columbus as a symbol of European imperialism and white supremacy and the lasting impact of his “discovery” of the Americas.
The performance will be followed by a panel at 3pm on public memorials and social justice.
Presented in partnership with the Chicago Architecture Biennial, DePaul Department of Art, Media, and Design, and DePaul Department of History of Art and Architecture.
