Visual Voices: Adriana Ospina - "Working at the Art Museum of the Americas - Latin America and Diplomacy"
The George Mason University School of Art Visual Voices Colloquium is a professional lecture series that invites nationally recognized visiting artists and designers to speak about their work and the world of art and design to students and the community at large. Presented in a digital format this Fall, the School of Art invites you to this intimate look inside four artists’ minds, workshops, and practices.
Adriana Ospina is the Curator of the Permanent Collection and Educational programs at the Art Museum of the Americas (AMA). Her first major curatorial project was a traveling exhibition based on AMA’s collection, Converging Cultures: Asian Diasporas and Latin American & Caribbean Art, 1945-Present.For this project AMA partnered with International Arts and Artists. She also organized a symposium on the occasion of the centennial of AMA’s founding director José Gómez-Sicre’s birth. This program sought to juxtapose Gómez-Sicre’s promotion of Cuban art in the 1940s with the efforts of scholars, modern and contemporary art museums and other institutions, both in Cuba and the United States, in support of contemporary Cuban art.
