Bilingual (Spanish/English) Curator Tour of Yvette Mayorga: Dreaming of You
October 12 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$8 – $12
Please join us for an evening tour of the exhibition Yvette Mayorga: Dreaming of You led by the curator, Caitlin Monachino, The Aldrich’s Curatorial and Publications Manager. The tour will cover an overview of Mayorga’s work, which examines the Mexican American or Latinx experience in the United States. Mimicking the confectionary labors performed by her mother when she worked as a baker in a department store in the 1970s after immigrating to the US, Mayorga uses bakery-grade piping bags to thickly apply her signature bubblegum pink acrylics. Her compositions chronicle her upbringing as a first-generation Mexican American woman in the Midwest, as well as greater societal issues ranging from border control, surveillance, and migrant labor.
This tour will be delivered in English and with Spanish translation and presented in partnership with The Danbury Library.
Yvette Mayorga: Dreaming of You is on view at The Aldrich from September 14, 2023 through March 17, 2024.
