Talk with Curator Eva Mayhabal Davis

Eva Mayhabal Davis has curated exhibitions at BronxArtSpace, En Foco, Expressiones Cultural Center, MECA International Art Fair, Smack Mellon and Ray Gallery. In 2020, she will be the Curator-in-Residence at Brooklyn’s Kunstraum LLC. Based in New York, she works with artists and creatives in the production of exhibitions, texts, and events.

Her personal immigrant narrative drives her work in advocacy to advance equity and social justice values through the arts and culture. She was born in Mexico, raised in the United States, and she studied Art History at the University of Washington. She is a founding member of El Salón, a meetup for cultural producers based in NYC.

She was a Milton and Sally Avery Arts Foundation Curatorial Fellow at the Bronx Museum of Art and an alum of the No Longer Empty: Curatorial Lab. In 2018, she participated in the Art & Law Program Fellowship and in 2019 she was a National Association for Latinos in Art and Culture (NALAC) Leadership Advocacy Fellow and NYFA Leadership Boot Camp participant.

QCC Art & Design Department and Gallery & Museum Studies Program is pleased to host Eva Mayhabal Davis for a presentation on her work followed by a conversation on the the contemporary climate of creative curation.

All those with an interest in decisions and choices in contemporary cultural practices are encouraged to attend. We hope to see you there.
