Join Lauren Guick, one of the authors of “Women Street Artists of Latin America: Art without Fear/ Grafiteras y Muralistas de América Latina: Arte sin Miedo” (Rachel Cassandra will be unable to make it!) for an evening of discussion around gender, feminism, race and identity, and art practices of women making rad art in Central and South America.
In this groundbreaking, in-depth look at a rarely explored perspective of street art, more than twenty women artists from seven nations in Latin America discuss themes of social justice, artist process, community, visibility, feminism, and more. A bilingual edition packed with full-color photographs and interviews, this revealing exploration of contemporary street art includes work from Colombia, Peru, Panama, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Mexico.

This breadth of stories is vital to understanding challenges women face in street art as well as illustrating possibilities for street art’s influence on the world.
