Cecilia Moreno-Yaghoubi’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 Herald’s “20 Under 40”) featuring several of Miami’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-Yaghoubi’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.
