Virtual Connections: Together From a Distance by Everyone
Troublesome ‘96: Exploring the Chicano Experience by Bobby Marines and Lael Martinez
Wednesday September 9th 7pm-8pm (CST) on Zoom.
Bobby Marines will be sharing his work as he, and long-time friend, Lael Martinez, discuss the complexities of navigating Chicano culture in Texas, South Central Los Angeles, and Minnesota. The conversation is meant to encourage inquiry and dialogue in pursuit of understanding so questions and comments will be welcome along the way.
From eighth grade dropout, in Texas, to working artist, in Minnesota, Bobby “graduated” from dumpster diving for cardboard canvases to a full-time interdisciplinary practice. His work explores the systemic affects of socioeconomics, race, and the criminal justice system on Latinx cultural identity.
Bobby Marines is a 2015 Advancing Artist grant recipient through the Southeast Minnesota Arts Council and a 2020 Artist-in-Residence at RALC, through the Minnesota State Arts Board. His latest body of work includes Cascarones (Soo Visual Arts Center, Mpls), Cuartito in the Burbs (MadeHereMN, Mpls), and was featured in Making it OK: Art, Bravery, and Mental Health(Rochester Art Center). He recently sat as President of C4, a non-profit arts organization in Rochester.
