OPENING RECEPTION \\ Thursday April 16th, 3:30-5:00pm

The Raza Resource Centro is hosting an exhibition featuring artwork created by students who participated in Professor Jillian Hernandez’s Latina/o Sexualities course in Spring 2014. The course, which was cross-listed with Ethnic Studies and Critical Gender Studies, invited students to view themselves as artists and producers of knowledge. The paintings, collages, and other works in the exhibition provoke complex understandings of Latina/o Sexualities as complex processes in flux, not static objects to be observed. Latina/o sexualities are ideas and experiences, stereotypes and social constructions as well as fantasies, sensations, embodiments, and creative practices. The class engaged Latina/o sexualities through transnational histories, memoirs and testimonios, artworks, literature, music, film, and video. These varied productions of knowledge examined how law, immigration, exile, religion, and norms of ethnicity, race, class, and gender shape Latina/o sexual identities and practices.

CREATIVE EROTICS WORKSHOP // Thursday, April 23rd,12:00-1:30pm

Inspired by the expressive pedagogies practiced in the Latina/o Sexualities course, this workshop will engage participants in hands on art projects that explore issues of desire and cultural politics.
