Reading & Booksigning, Borderless: The Art of Luis Tapia
2 pm to 4 pm
Join us for a panel discussion and book signing celebrating Borderless: The Art of Luis Tapia, a new book that documents pioneering Chicano artist Luis Tapia’s 45-year career in art. The first full-length study of Tapia’s work, Borderless delves deep into his artistic legacy as a celebrated and influential figure in Chicano and New Mexican art, from the early 1970s to today. Leading art historians, curators, and literary figures consider Tapia’s refined craftsmanship and insightful commentary to be visual and social touchstones for a tradition in transition. Contributors include Dana Gioia, Charlene Villaseñor Black, Lucy R. Lippard, Denise Chávez, Edward Hayes, and Director and Curator of the NHCC Art Museum, Tey Marianna Nunn.
