The third in a series of events organized by AUX's fourth Curatorial Fellow, Anthony Romero, Romero and AUX present an evening with Marisa Williamson, J. Soto, and Judith Leemann—artists from New York City and Chicago addressing a range of creative approaches to deconstructing marginalized voices. The AUX Curatorial Fellowships, run by Vox Populi Gallery, have been supported by a grant from The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
Anthony Romero is a Chicago artist, writer, and curator interested in documenting and supporting artist-communities whose narratives and practices are often excluded from art historical narratives and exhibitions. Marisa Williamson is an New York-based artist, originally from Philadelphia. She is currently participating in the Whitney Museum's Independent Study Program, and will be joining us in the midst of this program to premiere her new film, Hemings in Paris. J. Soto is a New York-based artist, generating work in performance and text, whose choreographic work investigates the queer experience through an interrogation of race and class. Judith Leemann is a Chicago-based artist and educator, presenting collaborative work through which she seeks to understand the privilege of speaking through contemporary news events.
