Special Visit to Mexico City

Michelle Angela Ortiz in Mexico City

 

March 23, 2015

Michelle Angela Ortiz shared her work in the presence of murals created by Diego Rivera and Jose Clemente Orozco at the Museum of the Antiguo Colegio de San Idelfonso in Mexico City, Mexico. As part of Barrio Roots: Festival/ Conference, I was invited by the United States Embassy in Mexico in partnership with HABITAJES AC, a non-profit organization that seeks to promote artistic practices in the public space from the perspective of human rights, gender, citizenship and memory. During my stay, I presented my “Aquí y Allá: Crossing Borders” Documentary to various communities, visited several murals in the city, and I lead a workshop with local artists focused on art and social context.
