In partnership with National Museum of Mexican Art

Estrada will be joined by Cesareo Moreno, Chief Curator of the National Museum of Mexican Art (NMMA), for a conversation that explores parallels between the practices of Estrada and the late artist and activist Carlos Cortez. The conversation will highlight the influence of Cortez onto generations of Mexican-American artists in Chicago and focus on shared values and methodologies present in the two artists’ practices that intend to uplift community voices.  This program is a collaboration between Hyde Park Art Center and the NMMA on the occasion of the exhibitionWilliam Estrada: Multiples and Multitudes and the centennial commemoration of Carlos Cortéz's legacy.
