Artist Lecture: Vick Quezada
Wednesday, April 14, 6:00PM

Please join the NMSU Department of Art for an artist lecture with Vick Quezada. Quezada (they/them) explores hybrid forms in Indigenous-Latinx history and the function of these histories in contested lands, primarily in the U.S.-Mexico Border. They incorporate found objects and flora to reference the Aztec Indigenous beliefs which affirm the third-gender, and claim all beings are interconnected . Quezada’s work has been exhibited across the Northeast and featured in BOMB Magazine, Trans Studies Quarterly, and Remezcla. Quezada is currently a fellow at the Leslie Lohman Museum, and they just completed an artist-in-residence at the Latinx Project NYU and they will be featured amongst a “large-scale survey” of emerging artists in El Museo del Barrio’s upcoming La Trienal. Vick Quezada holds a BA from the University of Texas at El Paso and an MFA from the UMASS Amherst.
