How is this radicalism expressed from your curatorial practice? Working in Miami, I have been able to further the discourse of Latin American and Caribbean art in connection to Latinx art and Black art movements, including voices and conversations that have been traditionally excluded.
This radicalism is expressed in the themes I am interested for exhibition projects and programs, as well as acquisitions for the museum. I think my radicalism is more evident in my writing style, which often engages a personal narrative. In this sense, I think my curatorial practice engages both a desire to express my point of view and use strategies to further facilitate my discourse, for example using the personal or the trope of a question like in The Other Side of Now.
I strive towards the balance between form and content that expresses my authenticity. AD: Attention to video practices has been an element of interest in your research.

MEO: I feel like for anyone interested in doing this type of research, the information is out there. For decades, there have been people working on these subjects.
