Artist Projects



desveladas: visual conversations from the americas was conceived as multimedia conversations among three "over-documented daughters of the Americas": poet Sheila Maldonado, journalist Macarena Hernández, and writer Nelly Rosario. Their cultural roots are in the United States, Honduras, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic. The chosen name of the collaborative emerged from the artists' many desvelos (all-nighters) spent discussing abstract and concrete borders encountered throughout their collective writing and teaching experiences. Included in the proposed multimedia project is work on a fotonovela; this collaborative graphic novel in photos also draws from collected video interviews, maps, primary documents, illustrations, and writings. desveladas has presented at Princeton University and for Kweli and Asterix journals in partnership with The New York Times African Heritage Network.
