The Projecto’s Spanglish Series continues with the amazing Leslie Moody Castro.
Es mi mentora, inspiración, and a fucking badass person; she’s been leading Texas and CDMX into a more fun, inclusive Art world and we’re beyond thrilled to have her chat con su servilleta 😉
Send us your questions and comments, we’ll go through them live this Thursday, Abril 2, a las 7PM en https://www.instagram.com/theprojectoatx/
Leslie Moody Castro is an independent curator and writer whose practice is based on itinerancy and collaboration. She has produced, organized, and collaborated on projects in Mexico and the United States for more than a decade, and her repertoire of critical writing is also reflective of her commitment to place. She is committed to creating moments of artistic exchange and dialogue and as such is a co-founder of Unlisted Projects, an artist residency program in Austin, Texas. In 2017, she was selected as Curator and Artistic Director of the sixth edition of the Texas Biennial, and was recently the first invited curator in residence at the Galveston Artist Residency. Moody Castro earned a Master’s degree at The University of Texas at Austin in Museum Education with a portfolio supplement in Museum Studies in 2010, and a Bachelor’s degree in Art History at DePaul University in Chicago in 2004, and has been awarded two grants from the National Endowment of the Arts for her curatorial projects (2016, 2017). In addition to her firm belief that the visual arts create moments of empathy, Moody Castro also believes that Mariachis make everything better.
This project is funded in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
