July 15 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Who: The Anti-Racism Task Force and the Latinx Ministry

What: Juan de Pareja, Afro-Hispanic Painter

When: Saturday, July 15th @ 3:30-5:30 PM.

Where: 1000 Fifth Avenue, at 82nd Street, New York, NY 10028 (Everyone will meet here.)

Why: “This exhibition offers an unprecedented look at the life and artistic achievements of seventeenth-century Afro-Hispanic painter Juan de Pareja (ca. 1608–1670). Largely known today as the subject of The Met’s iconic portrait by Diego Velázquez, Pareja—who was born in Antequera, Spain—was enslaved in Velázquez’s studio for over two decades before becoming an artist in his own right. This presentation is the first to tell his story and examine the ways in which enslaved artisanal labor and a multiracial society are inextricably linked with the art and material culture of Spain’s “Golden Age.” For more information please click here.

Cost: $30.00
