Gallery Guest Lecture Series: Isabel Servantez, ‘A Critical Perspective on the State of Chicano Art—a contemporary use’
Isabel Servantez presents a conversation on the contemporary use of the 1980 essay, “A Critical Perspective on the State of Chicano Art” by Malaquias Montoya and Lezlie Salkowitz-Montoya. Probing the text will allow current students and readers to investigate how artwork exists and acts within and outside accepted modes of art consumption, including museums and galleries. Students will be asked to consider how their own work is effective or ineffective once it moves from art studios into public and/or private art spaces. Examples of artists who fit consistencies and contradictions surrounding the essay will act as a catalyst for discussion.
Servantez is currently the Semmes Foundation Curatorial Intern in Museum Studies at the McNay Art Museum in San Antonio, Texas. He holds a Master of Arts degree in Modern and Contemporary Art History from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His scholarship is focused on Chicano, Chicana, Chicanx, and Latinx art.
