In this tenth and final episode, Ivan interviews Nicole Marroquin about the Texan experience vs the Michigan experience, how punk music can lead to liberation, learning how to be better from younger generations and leaving breadcrumbs for them, CPS, pedagogy, and how her practice makes the public history of student movements and institutions in Chicago accessible.

Dushko Petrovich will discuss a series of screenshot paintings he has been making during the pandemic. After pulling these photographs, maps, and graphs from the flux of his online experience, Pertrovich decided to translate them into paintings—in hopes that the shifts in physicality, scale, and means of circulation would give them a second, more reflective existence. Petrovich will discuss this in-progress body of work in relation to his previous painting projects and his publishing practice. Dushko Petrovich is a co-founder of Paper Monument, where he has published numerous critically acclaimed and bestselling books, including Draw It with Your Eyes Closed: The Art of the Art Assignment; Social Medium: Artists Writing 2000-2015; and As Radical, as Mother, as Salad, as Shelter: What Should Art Institutions Do Now? Petrovich currently chairs the New Arts Journalism department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

This panel “On Repatriation” is in conjunction with Claudia Peña Salinas’ Quetzalli, a site-specific installation at DePaul Art Museum that centers on the Aztec headdress, Penacho de Moctezuma, an object that has become a symbol of national identity for both Mexico and Austria. Quetzalli highlights the issues around the provenance of ancient artifacts and the role museums play in formulating cultural identities. Peña Salinas is joined by artist Gala Porras-Kim, who is featured in DPAM’s current LatinXAmerican exhibition and has treated “symbolic repatriations” through deep research in various museums. Prof. Patty Gerstenblith, Professor of Law at DePaul University and Director of its Center for Art, Museum & Cultural Heritage Law, and Prof. Morag Kersel, Archaeologist and DePaul’s director of the Museum Studies Minor, have lectured widely on the protection of antiquities and cultural heritage.

A specialist in Chicanx and Latinx art, C. Ondine Chavoya presents on queer networks in Latinx art and explores the works of LGBTQI artists in DPAM’s exhibition LatinXAmerican. Chavoya co-curated a number of historical exhibitions including Axis Mundo: Queer Networks in Chicano L.A. (2017) which mapped the intersections and collaborations among a network of queer Chicano artists and their artistic collaborators from the late 1960s to the early 1990s. This period was bookended by the Chicano Moratorium, gay liberation, and feminist movements on one end, and the AIDS crisis on the other. C. Ondine Chavoya is a Professor of Art History and Latina/o Studies at Williams College, where he teaches courses in contemporary art and visual culture. This program is moderated by LatinXAmerican artist Sam Kirk.
