The book launch will be hosted by El Museo, and will take place virtually from 7:00-8:30 p.m. on Zoom. The event will include the participation of Raphael Montañez Ortiz and monograph editor Javier Rivero Ramos, and will feature contributions from Chon Noriega (UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center), Ana Perry (CUNY Graduate Center), and artists Marcos Dimas, Pedro Reyes, and Juan Sanchez. Conversations will be followed by a Q&A.
Associate Professor Kevin Hatch will deliver a talk on Wednesday, July 22, as part of the book launch for RAPHAEL MONTAÑEZ ORTIZ, a monograph dedicated to the Nuyorican artist and founder and director of El Museo del Barrio in New York. Prof. Hatch’s talk will be drawn from the chapter he contributed to the book, “Raphael Montañez Ortiz: Media Magus.”
