Gallery Guest Lecture Series: José Villalobos, ‘Challenging Toxic Masculinity and the Marginalization of Queer Bodies’
José Villalobos joins the College for an online Artist Talk: “Challenging Toxic Masculinity and the Marginalization of Queer Bodies.” Villalobos juxtaposes patriarchal, religious, and social structures that marginalize queer identity. Using found objects, he manipulates material through the context of self-identity as he examines gender roles within family structures and culture. In his work, Villalobos protests the toxicity of machismo through the use of signs and symbols of Norteño culture.
Some of Villalobos’s prestigious accolades include the Joan Mitchell Painters and Sculptors Grant and residency, Artist Lab Fellowship Grant, and the Tanne Foundation award. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally including at Artpace, Albright College, Blanton Museum of Art, K Space Contemporary, McNay Art Museum, Mexic-Arte Museum, El Paso Museum of Art, and Museo de Arte de Cuidad Juárez.
