Reflecting on their lived experiences and professional practice, the artist will present current and past work encompassing over twenty years of a multidisciplinary creative practice spanning drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, and performance and poetry. This artist talk will center on self-design and transformation as consistent themes in Maldonado’s various approaches to image making. Audience Q&A to follow.
