Artist Talk with Rommy Torrico
November 13, 2022 - 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Join is for an artist talk with exhibiting artist, Rommy Torrico. Rommy, a queer trans migrant who navigated the world as undocumented until 2018, has been collaborating with communities at the forefront of liberation movements since 2012.
Their exhibition “Cabeza en las nubes,” directly translated as ‘head in the clouds’, is a body of work that spans a decade of dreamscapes that have been born from liberatory struggle and creative release. As a trans storyteller who lives at the intersections of these identities, they have committed to constantly dreaming and reimagining a refuge of futures where migrant, queer trans communities can live in joy and safety– with access to affordable housing, stable income and nourishing networks of care. From immigration, to incarceration, to education, the images in this collection explore a range of issues that are impacting trans communities.
