Cecilia Moreno-Yaghoubiâ€™s How I Lost My Accent: The Black and White Series project, presents a dynamic panel discussion curated and moderated by Vanessa Garcia (Krane, Inc., The Miami Heraldâ€™s â€œ20 Under 40â€) featuring several of Miamiâ€™s top art ambassadors. Crafting Art on Both Sides of the Hyphen panelists will include: Carol Damian (Frost Art Museum), Irina Levya-Perez (PanAmerican ArtProjects) and Luisa Lignarolo (Cernuda Arte) and artist Gustavo Oviedo.
Coinciding with Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 – October 15), the collaborative will come together to discuss the relationship between Latin American and Latin-American art. With an open-forum format, the panel will explore an in-depth comparison of artwork produced by Latin Americans living in the United States and those living in the Southern Hemisphere.
How I Lost My Accent: The Black and White Series is a pop-up exhibition highlighting Moreno-Yaghoubiâ€™s repressed and unearthed memories. In addition to presenting new oil and mixed media paintings, a series of clotheslines mounted with worn dresses, pinned with weathered black and white photos and antique dolls will transform the Buena Vista Building the DACRA-sponsored space into a virtual maze of the unconscious mind. Reconstructing and romanticizing the past with found objects and two-dimensional works, Moreno-Yaghoubi creates a tangible reflection of her memory for viewers.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
