Keynote: What is ‘Latinx’?

This year, 1-54 Forum has been curated by Julia Grosse and Yvette Mutumba, founders and editors-in-chief of Contemporary And (C&) and Contemporary And América Latina (C&AL) and takes place under the title, “I felt like a Black guy from New York trapped in Peru.” Over three afternoons, 1-54 Forum will be engaging with creative Afro-Latin American, Caribbean and African perspectives.


Keynote: What is ‘Latinx’?

Thursday, 8 October, 17:00 – 18:00

The term “Latinx” is an update of traditional labels such as “Hispanic” or “Latin” which emerged around the mid-twentieth century to describe Latin American migrant communities in the US. ALDEIDE DELGADO (Independent Latinx Curator and Founding Director of Women Photographers International Archive) talks about the implications and opportunities of the new expression.
