Come and join us for an artist talk with Art in Translation guest artist Sandra Calvo.

Calvo lives and works in Mexico City. She completed a Masters degree in Liberal Arts - 
Postcolonial, Media and Urban Studies - at The New School for Social
 Research, New York (2005). She has a Bachelor degree in
 Political Science from the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México and at the 
University of Havana, Cuba (2002). She has studied Literature in 
Escuela Dinámica de Escritores (2002), in the Sociedad General de Escritores 
Mexicanos (2001), and in History of Art and Cinema by the University of La
 Sorbonne, Paris (1996). Her artistic practice is social, collaborative and 
site specific. Her projects require long-term integration and a commitment to the community. Her greatest interest is the critical reflection on the problem of public space: housing policies, urbanization processes, segregation and spatial appropriation, informal work, forms of self-learning and self-organization.

Utilizing her social, collaborative and site-specific artistic practice, Calvo’s piece for Art in Translation will showcase housing, shelter, and territory issues in Jackson. In collaboration with Carmina and Jorge Moreno from One22, Calvo’s installation piece reflects housing challenges here in Teton County and the people impacted.

Listen to Calvo discuss her piece, her process and her point of view.

Art in Translation is presented by the Art Association of Jackson Hole in collaboration with Center for the Arts and is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole, the Center of Wonder, and the William E. Weiss Foundation. For more information on Art in Translation, visit artassociation.org.
