AGO x RBC Emerging Artists Exchange: Anahí González

Mentorship period: August 3 – 1 September, 2022

Anahí will explore artworks in the AGO's Latin American contemporary collection which depict human labour. This project is the continuation of her research about labour representation in visual arts and her artistic contribution to the relationship between Latin America and Canada. She wants her findings to provoke reflections on the power systems that create labour inequalities in Latin America, and to highlight the importance of Latin American collections in Canadian art institutions.
