ARCHIVES + FUTURES

Ivan Lozano
Gonzalo Reyes Rodriguez

Archives + Futures (A+F) is a podcast series developed by Ivan Lozano and Gonzalo Reyes Rodriguez. Currently in its pilot season, A+F is generating an online archive of interviews and conversations as resources for current and future visual artists to connect to the personal practices, cultural histories, canons, heroes and ancestors of their fellow Latinx and Indigenous artists of the Americas. The first season of Archives + Futures consists of live conversations and panels with local artists, pre-recorded segments with artists outside Chicagoland, and commissioned audio reports addressing topical issues, such as exhibition reports, commentary on current issues affecting the art world, and long-form pieces about contemporary or historical artists. The goal is to foster and support connections between local and international Latinx/Indigenous artists of the Americas as a way to generate content that validates and celebrates our unique experiences and contributions as visual artists.
