Artist Spotlights Domestic Workers in Spring Arts & Lectures
The spring Arts & Lectures series will open with a presentation from performance artist Andreína Maldonado.
Maldonado (aka Nina Limon) is an interdisciplinary artist, cultural worker and educator whose work is rooted in her experiences as a Venezuelan immigrant, performing artist and domestic worker. For six years, she has worked with Latinx women and men in the San Francisco Mission District to provide art spaces for healing and building relationships through dance, social activism and performances. This piece will feature 13 domestic workers and day laborers from the Mission District performing live music, poetry, worker testimonies and audio-visual projections.
During the event, Maldonado will present a lecture demonstrating her process of creating this work and a short documentary.
In conjunction with the Latinx Center, she also is teaching a wellness workshop that is open to the public.
The event is at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 8 in Arts 111. Reserve tickets online via the Arts & Lectures website.
