Episode No. 565 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast is a summer clips episode featuring artist Sandy Rodriguez.
Rodriguez is included in “Traitor, Survivor, Icon: The Legacy of La Malinche,” which is at the Albuquerque Museum through September 4. The exhibition examines the historical and cultural legacy of the Indigenous woman at the heart of the Spanish Conquest of Mexico (1519-1521) known colloquially as La Malinche. The show originated at the Denver Art Museum and was curated by Victoria I. Lyall and independent curator Terezita Romo. This fall it travels to the San Antonio Museum of Art.
Rodriguez’s work explores the methods and materials of painting in works that address Native and colonial histories, memory and contemporary events. Among her exhibition credits are the recent triennial at El Museo del Barrio, the Riverside Art Museum, Art + Practice, Los Angeles, and more.
