“latinos who lunch”
november 18 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
artists: justin favela and emmanuel ortega
latinos who lunch is a podcast hosted by favyfav and babelito that was created to provide a digital media platform that reflects the intersectionality between queer, latinx, and spanglish voices in an anglo dominated podcast world. they approach the topics of identity, food, family and history in a responsible yet humorous way. latinos who lunch intends to blend all these ideas together by placing into context everything from the piñata as a symbol of multiculturalism in mexico, to the politics of frida kahlo as an icon of mexicanidad. by maintaining visibility, accessibility and a philosophy of de-centering white male dominating cultural practices at the core mission of their content, latinos who lunch strives to open a dialogue with their listeners.
justin favela aka favyfav is known for large-scale installations and sculptures that manifest his interactions with american pop culture and the latinx experience. based in las vegas, nevada, he has exhibited internationally and across the united states. his installations have been commissioned by museums including the denver art museum in colorado and crystal bridges museum of american art in arkansas. his latest major project, puente nuevo, is at the amon carter museum of american art in fort worth, texas, through october 2020.
babelito (emmanuel ortega phd, art history, university of new mexico) is a curator, and a visiting professor at the university of illinois at chicago. ortega has lectured widely about images of autos-de-fe, nineteenth-century mexican landscape painting, and visual representations of the new mexico pueblo peoples in novohispanic franciscans martyr paintings. he is also a recurrent lecturer for arquetopia foundation for development, the largest artist residency in méxico.
