Emilio Sanchez / Art Book Presentation
Hard Light: The Work of Emilio Sanchez
New York Public Library
South Court Hall, 5th Ave & 42nd Street.
Tuesday, June 7 · 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Three authors Rafael DiazCasas, John D. Angeline, and Rudi C. Bleys will offer diverse perspectives on the multifaceted Cuban American painter Emilio Sanchez (1921-1999) followed by a panel discussion moderated by Marysol Nieves. Each author will present an illustrated talk about Sanchez's work-from its relevance to aspects of modernism in Latin America, the Caribbean, and the U.S., to a unique glimpse into his private world and art through the lens of queer theory and aesthetics. This prismatic presentation will give readers a fresh look at this unique artist's vision while firmly positioning Sanchez within the discourse on 20th-century art history.
