Aperture Foundation is pleased to present a night of conversation between artist Guadalupe Rosales and independent curator Vivian Crockett.

Since 2015, artist Guadalupe Rosales has been building an archive of vernacular photographs and ephemera connected to Latinx culture in Los Angeles. Her projects exist as both archives of physical objects and crowdsourced digital archives, assembled on her widely followed Instagram accounts (@veteranas_and_rucas and @map_pointz). Guided by an instinct to create counter narratives, Rosales tells the stories of communities often underrepresented in official archives and public memory.

A short reception will be held after the talk to celebrate Rosales’s exhibition, Legends Never Die, A Collective Memory.
