A Conversation with Artist and Activist Patricia Vasquez

Listen in on a conversation between myself and my very inspiring friend Patricia Vasquez. In this episode we talk about her artistic practice as a painter and a poet, her work as an activist and socially engaged artist with immigrant populations and the day laborers center in Portland, OR, the importance of embodiment, race, nationality, identity, and more.

Patricia Vasquez is an artist and community educator based in the US and Mexico. Her work is multi-disciplinary, multi-dimensional and deeply thoughtful. Her studio work explores the connections between race, gender, nationality, class, sexuality and other sources of identity. View her studio art portfolio and projects here:
