Personal narratives and investigating the ways in which coping strategies linked to physical, social, and generational trauma reveal themselves through storytelling
Join us on April 27 for a presentation and conversation with Oaxaca-based artist, Nelson Morales.
Nelson Morales was born in Unión Hidalgo, Oaxaca. For nearly seven years he has devoted himself entirely to photography. Her work focuses mainly on sexual diversity and identity in different cultures—mainly the community of muxe, a third gender—on the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, part of the state of Oaxaca. Morales was a student of three leaders of contemporary photography in Mexico: Antoine D’Agata, Juan Antonio Molina, and Javier Ramírez Limón. Morales earned a BA in communication at Universidad José Vasconcelos. His work has been exhibited in the United States, Mexico, Malaysia, Spain, and The Netherlands and is in the collections of Televisa Foundation, Nail Hollis, and Foam. Morales is a recipient of the 2015–16 Young Creators Fellowship of the National Fund for Culture and the Arts (FONCA).
