30. Art and Curation In The Time of Covid-19 in Latin America with Gisselle Girón.
By Jo McLaughlin
Welcome back to the Jo’s Art History Podcast. It’s episode 30 and in today’s episode we are taking you online to look at a selection of Latin American artists and their response to making during the Covid-19 crisis with the help of my guest, curator and art historian, Gisselle Girón. Gisselle works between the UK and Peru and takes us on a whistle stop tour of 5 examples of Latin American Artists who have rejected the traditional display paths - such as museums and galleries in favour of online, virtual platforms. Gisselle speaks so beautifully and passionately about the importance of breaking down traditional viewing perceptions, why the internet is a tool to make art accessible and just how we can all become patrons to contemporary artists living and working today. It’s a long episode at 1 hour and a half but I was so in awe of Giselle who makes some really brilliant points throughout the episode it did not feel right to edit it down to 1 hour! Stick the kettle on, sit back and enjoy - it is a brilliant episode!
