Latin American Forum: Eroticisms and Subversion in Latin America
A Panel with Cecilia Palmeiro, Duen Sacchi, and Jorge Sánchez
Moderated by Mariano López Seoane and Bernardo Mosqueira
Introduction by Edward J. Sullivan, the Helen Gould Shepard Professor in the History of
Art, the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University

Feminist and queer activists, artists, and writers have long harnessed the forces of the erotic to energize and power their interventions. Presented by the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU, and organized in conjunction with the exhibition Eros Rising: Visions of the Erotic in Latin American Art at the Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA), this panel will examine the political applications and subversive potential of eroticism in contemporary Latin America through three case studies. Reflecting on recent feminist activism in Latin America, the scholar, writer, and activist Cecilia Palmeiro will discuss the prospect of politicizing pleasure and eroticizing politics. In his presentation, the artist and writer Duen Sacchi will interrogate our erotic connections to the past, insinuating the possibility of an “ero-historiography” vis-a-vis colonial trauma and the pleasure of resistance. For his talk, the artist, writer, and lawyer Jorge Sánchez will address the intersection between Latinx and queer/cuir perspectives in the Americas. The panelists’ presentations will be followed by a discussion moderated by Mariano López Seoane and Bernardo Mosqueira, the curators of Eros Rising.
